San Jose Sharks
The Sharks played their worst game of these playoffs on Sunday in Game 5, falling 5-0. It is the first time. The Sharks are banged up to make matters worse. Captain Joe Pavelski left in the third period Sunday having an injury, while winger Tomas Hertl and defenceman Erik Karlsson both missed the next period since they were hurt. As he’s dealing with a groin injury karlsson and just 10:32 played overall. Hertl was struck by Ivan Barbashev at the first stage (was able to continue playing for a while), with the Sharks asserting it should have been a major penalty but no penalty was called. Barbashev will not receive any supplemental field.
St. Louis Blues
If they comprised the playoffs in discovering season awards, Blues netminder Jordan Binnington would be a lock to win the Calder Trophy as the team’s top rookie — he is a finalist. Binnington stopped all 21 shots Sunday for his first career playoff shutout and just the second for the franchise in the past 15 decades. Binnington was not the No. 1 star of Game 5, though. That honor belonged. It was the hat trick of his career and secondly in these playoffs. No Blues player had multiple hat tricks in precisely the same postseason. No participant in the NHL had multiple hat tricks in the very same playoffs since 2008. Schwartz has 12 goals in these playoffs, one greater than he had in 69 regular-season games. St. Louis includes a 3-2 lead in a best-of-7 series for the 13th time. The Blues won 10 of their 12 series.
