The Western Conference Quarterfinals series between the St. Louis Blues and the San Jose Sharks heads back to Missouri on Saturday with the Blues up three games to one.

The Western Conference Quarterfinals series between the San Jose Sharks and the St. Louis Blues heads back to Missouri with the Sharks in a 3-1 hole. San Jose took Game 1 in overtime, but have lost three straight since then, which puts St. Louis on the verge of a second-round berth.

It's no surprise that the Blues have won since Brian Elliott took over in net for the injured Jaroslav Halak in Game 2. The "backup" goaltender is fourth in the league with a .944 save percentage, and second with a 1.51 goals-against average. He has given up four total goals in his three starts this series. If the Sharks have any hope of getting back in this series, putting pressure on Elliott has to be priority No. 1.
