I like the Blues to close this thing out. The Blues have a huge edge in the crease and that should give them the edge they need to move onto their first Stanley Cup Finals since 1969/70. The Sharks allowed 3.46 gpg on the road for the year overall, which includes allowed 3.38 gpg on the road in the postseason. The Blues have allowed 2.98 gpg at home for the year, but we also note that Jordan Binnington had a 2.02 GAA here at home for the year and he has allowed just 2.38 gpg in his last eight home playoff games. With Binnington at home, the matchup in the crease is not even close. Look for the Blues to move on to the Stanley Cup Finals behind their rookie goalie.80%

Fear the Fin: Sharks 1, Blues 5: Sharks season ends in St. Louis
Though it was perhaps a month later than once expected, the end of the Sharks' playoff run has finally arrived. The St. Louis Blues won the series in six game with a dominating 5-1 win in Game 6.
Going into the game, the Sharks knew they would be without Erik Karlsson and Tomas Hertl. Joe Pavelski opted not to take warm-ups, which hopefully was the right decision for his long-term health, but it meant the Sharks were without their major stars in an elimination situation.
It wasn't an accident; the Blues targeted all three men the entire series, and didn't let up on the remaining Sharks' talent in Game 6.

It will be tougher than ever for San Jose to be resilient as it will be without stars Tomas Hertl and Erik Karlsson, and perhaps, captain Joe Pavelski.

San Jose Mercury News: Photos: San Jose Sharks plagued by injuries in 5-0 Game 5 shutout by St. Louis Blues
The San Jose Sharks not only suffered a disastrous 5=0 loss to the St. Louis Blues on home ice, but a bunch of injured players also left the bench during the game.
They lost four players to apparent injuries during Game 5: defenseman Erik Karlsson, forwards Tomas Hertl and Joonas Donskoi, and captain Joe Pavelski. In the third period, they were down to nine men on the bench, not including backup goalie Aaron Dell. Karlsson came in the game with a pre-existing injury, and appeared to grimace in pain while on the ice. Pavelski left after taking a bone-ratlling hit along the boards from Blues captain Alex Pietrangelo.
