Analysis

Back at home after two games on the road, St. Louis has the opportunity pull ahead 2-1 on home ice. The Blues are 5-1 in their last six games as a favorite of -110 to -150. The home team is 6-1 in the last seven meetings between the two teams.

But the Sharks are 6-1 in their last seven when their opponent allows two goals or less in the previous game. San Jose is 5-2 in their last seven meetings with the Blues and 8-3 in their last 11 overall.
St. Louis’ adjustments after Game 1 led to a Game 2 victory. Now it’s San Jose’s turn to make the adjustments. The Sharks should bounce back with a solid effort.
