The St. Louis Blues will host the San Jose Sharks on Saturday in the second game of their opening-round playoff series. The Blues will be looking to even up the series at one win apiece.
On Saturday, the San Jose Sharks will play the hometown St. Louis Blues in the second game of their opening-round Stanley Cup playoff series. The Sharks stunned St. Louis in the first game of the best-of-seven series and hold a 1-0 lead heading into Saturday's game, but remain huge underdogs with a long way to go.
The Blues -- who are the No. 2 seed in the Western Conference playoffs -- are the odds-on favorites to win the conference and advance to the Stanley Cup finals. Their loss to the Sharks on Thursday night was the first time all season that they had any difficulty dispatching San Jose. In their four regular-season meetings, St. Louis was 4-0 and outscored the Sharks 11-3.
Saturday night's game will begin at 7:30 p.m. ET and will be televised nationally on CNBC. In the San Francisco Bay Area, the game will be televised on CSN-California, while it will air on FOX Sports-Midwest in the St. Louis area.
