After what looked like a momentum changing goal from Brent Burns at the end of the first period, Andy McDonald and Jason Arnott get on the board for St. Louis in the second period to throw a second straight two goal deficit at San Jose heading into the final frame.

The Sharks will have 1:40 left to kill off a Daniel Winnik penalty that saw him board Carlo Colaiacovo.

For San Jose, whose PK struggles from the regular season have begun to bleed into the postseason, killing this opening man advantage will be crucial. Following that it's a matter of generating some better zone possession-- with many of San Jose's chances coming off the rush tonight, and Brian Elliot content to make the first stop and squash any rebound opportunities, it's a matter of grinding the puck down low and winning those board battles that are in short supply against a team as strong as St. Louis down low.

Twenty minutes to get two.

Hell, let's shoot for three and see what happens.
