The Blues power-play scored for a second straight game (in game four) and that is a good sign, since the team that had gone 0-for-18 together with the man advantage prior to scoring in game .

Tomas Hertl scored the team’s only aim of the game. This was his 10th of this post season, which is the second most goals scored by a play this post season. Team partner Logan Couture leads with 15.
Ironically, Hertl’s goal snapped the Sharks’ scoreless streak of 226 minutes, 48 minutes in Game 4’s this postseason after being shut out in the initial two rounds (Vegas/Colorado).
