Game 1 Takeaways

The Sharks were the better team in almost all aspects of the Game in the series opener. While the Blues wound up with a 31-25 edge in shots, they were down 1-0 early and 3-1 midway through the second, and were largely chasing the game for the majority of the 60 minutes. San Jose had the edge in shots and scoring chances through 40 minutes and took a commanding 5-2 lead into the third frame.


The usually defensively responsible Blues regularly turned the puck over and surrendered an uncharacteristic number of odd-man rushes. The Sharks’ snipers capitalized as rookie goalie Jordan Binnington played one of his worst games of the postseason. Allowing five goals on just 24 shots resulted in his postseason save percentage dropping to .908.

At the other end, Martin Jones was solid for San Jose, which continues his upward trend.

Jones was arguably the worst starting goalie in the entire NHL in the regular season (.896 SV%, 2.94 GAA) and was lit up by Vegas early in the first round. But he has been much better since Game 5 of that series and now has a respectable .909 SV% in the playoffs.

Betting Trends

In terms of the puckline, the Blues are 46-50, after losing Game 1 by three goals. The Sharks, however, are considerably worse on the year, with a brutal 40-57 puckline record.
