Injury attrition played a role for the Sharks, who played seven games in each of the first two rounds. The Sharks took back home ice with this controversial win, but the Blues left their mark again, as they scored four goals and continued the unrelenting checking of the Sharks.

The team that fired its coach in November and sat dead last in the National Hockey League when the sun rose on January 3 dispatched the San Jose Sharks in a six-game Western Conference final, capped by a 5-1 home-ice victory on Tuesday. Despite that, San Jose created more high-danger chances at full strength in regulation (11) than in any other game this series, although six came as the Sharks attempted to climb out of a two-goal hole in the third period. I believe that was the final dagger, as the Blues scored on the counter rush giving them a 3-1 lead, and all the Blues would need. So, during these last three games, San Jose only managed two goals overall.

Krasinski, who was raised in Newton, Mass., is a Bruins fan, a point he made clear with a follow-up tweet juxtaposing himself in B's gear beside Fischer - a St. Louis native - in her Blues jersey.

With the series tied 2-2, the Sharks had an opportunity to solve Binnington and put the Blues into an elimination game back in St. Louis. Expect copious amounts of "David Backes vs. the Blues" and "Jordan Binnington vs".

Now Here's My Take On Everything From Game 6 to The Blues Comeback.

19 students killed in fire at commercial complex in Surat
Civilians were helping in the rescue operation to save students and occupants of the four-storey building, witnesses said. Congress President Rahul Gandhi wrote on Twitter, "I'm deeply hurt by the news of fire in Surat ".

Two years later in 1943, the Red Wings got their revenge as they swept the Bruins in the Stanley Cup Final and hoisted the Cup at Boston Garden. "But they showed up and it was great". Coach Peter DeBoer told his team the ingredients were in place for that elusive first championship in San Jose. I want to give them credit. While the Sharks goaltending faltered in the later part of the series, as well as their defense. With a record of 15 wins, 18 losses and four overtime losses for 34 points, they were 11 points back of the Anaheim Ducks for the final playoff spot in the Western Conference.

For the first time since 1970, the Blues are headed to the Stanley Cup Final and one radio station in St. Louis knows exactly how to celebrate.

"I'm proud they played as well as they did", said Grace Mitchell of Los Altos.

The San Jose Sharks already have their work cut out for them to get past the St. Louis Blues and advance to the Stanley Cup Final. It was an awesome run, riddled with the controversy of 5 minute majors, goals being reversed from off-sides, and hand-passes not being called in OT. Boston most recently competed for the Cup in 2013 and won in 2011.
