When the Blues Go Marching In: An Illustrated Timeline of St. Louis Blues Hockey
San Jose Sharks-St Louis Blues 1st Round Playoff Matchup Preview
NHL playoff preview- Sharks-Blues
St. Louis after a 6-7 start earlier this season fired coach Davis Payne in favor of grizzled veteran Ken Hitchcock.
Hitchcock responded by leading the Blues to the 2nd seed in the Western Conference with 109 points and a league best 30-6-5 home record. St. Louis surprised everyone with great defense, goal-tending, and a stingy penalty kill.
Their defense overall was historic as they only gave up an all time NHL record of 165 goals in a 82 game season.
Offensively it was a different story as they were 21st in the league and their leading scorer David Backes only had 54 points total, good enough for 74th in the league. Their power play was only 19th in the league as well.
The Blues won a division that has perennial playoff teams in Detroit, Nashville, and Chicago. Overall they were one of the toughest teams in the league and were so stingy defensively they could easily make a run to the Stanley Cup.
Now enter the San Jose Sharks, a team who has made the playoffs every year since 2003-2004 and has advanced to the Western Conference Finals each of the last two years defeating the vaunted Detroit Red Wings each year along the way.
For the first time in years the Sharks were struggling to make the playoffs. They started the season hot and looked every bit like the team everyone expected to be back in the Western Conference Finals and perhaps in the Stanley Cup Finals.
Then a 9-game road trip in February hit coincidentally starting off with a 3-0 loss to the St. Louis Blues. The Sharks teetered for nearly a month and half before righting the ship in the last half of March and early April almost coming back all the way to win the Pacific Division.
The Sharks feature star power on offense across the board with the likes of Joe Thornton, Patrick Marleau, Logan Couture, Joe Pavelski and Martin Havlat. All players who have proven themselves in the playoffs.
San Jose also ranked 2nd on the power play and 13th in goals scored.
Defensively they have veteran Dan Boyle leading the way with up and comer Brent Burns playing alongside him.
The Sharks like the Blues are solid defensively as they were 8th in the league in goals allowed.
The Sharks major weakness was the penalty kill which ranked 29th in the league this season. A far cry from when they were 4th in the league during the 2020-2020 season with largely the same roster.
San Jose is hot, 9-4-1 in their last 14 games entering the playoffs defeating the likes of Nashville, Detroit, Boston, Dallas twice, and Los Angeles twice. All these teams were playing for something down the stretch with Dallas and LA being extremely desperate.
During the season the Blues dominated the Sharks winning all 4 games and shutting them out in the two games in St. Louis.
Based on that one would think St. Louis should take the series pretty easily but we all know regular season results are no basis of future success in the playoffs.
Playoffs are all about match-ups and St. Louis does not match up well with San Jose in a playoff series.
The Blues achilles heel is their lack of experience, scoring ability and star power going into the playoffs. Three categories that are a must for any team to win a playoff series much less make a deep run.
The Sharks on the other hand have massive experience, star power, and scoring ability from proven sources. The Sharks in all three categories are superior to the Blues and are hot at the best possible time.
Both teams are good defensively as the Blues are 1st in goals allowed while the Sharks are 8th in the same category.
I ask which players will the Blues look to step up in pressure situations? Or even setup other players?
While the Sharks know who their guys are; Thornton and Marleau are horses who have been through the wars of playing deep in the playoffs.
St. Louis also has a problem on who start in goal. Brian Elliot is a stud but is inexperienced (4 games of playoff experience) while Jaroslav Halak has experience (21 games) but was not better than Elliot during the season.
Who does Hitchcock go to? Does he have a short leash if one of them does not play well? This is a dilemma that is great to have during the regular season but come playoff time you need to stick to one guy in order to be successful.
In the playoffs the games get ugly and defensive and although St. Louis was historic defensively and have great goal tending the Sharks were 8th in the league themselves and Niemi is hot right now therefore the difference is negligible from a goal tending and defensive perspective.
The power play (Sharks 2nd, Blues 19th) and penalty kill (Sharks 29th, Blues 7th) will not be the deciding factor either as each team negates the other pretty much.
History indicates teams with star power, experience, and scoring ability along with great goal tending advance in the playoffs. San Jose has that formula in place and it has gotten them to the Western Conference Finals the last 2 years.
Had St. Louis ran into Phoenix or Los Angeles they would advance as those teams do not have the upfront star power, scoring ability and experience San Jose does.
St. Louis next season needs to make moves to improve in those three categories mentioned above. Only then can they expect to go deep in the playoffs and beat teams like San Jose, Vancouver, Chicago, or Detroit who are strong in all three areas.
The Blues also went cold towards the end of the season going 4-3-3 in their last 10 games costing them the President's Trophy and home ice throughout the playoffs while San Jose is playing their best hockey since early in the season.
In the end San Jose defeats St. Louis in 6 games to advance in a low scoring series where the Blues struggle to score but San Jose will not blow them out of the water either. St. Louis will have their chances to win this series because of their defense and superb goal tending but San Jose proves to be too much.
