The Sharks’ top line combined for eight points as the Sharks easily claimed Game 1 of the Western Conference Final by beating the St. Louis Blues 6-3.
Logan Couture started the scoring in the first five minutes of the game, and finished off the game with an empty-netter that killed the net camera. Couture now leads the NHL Playoffs in points (17) and goals (11).
Couture added an assist, and it was awesome. His poke-check from the neutral zone led to Timo Meier’s first goal of the game. It was a beautiful display of quick hands that fooled Jay Bouwmeester and beat Jordan Binnington. Meier also got a tip goal from behind the net, because he’s just that cool. Nyquist recorded two assists in the game as well.
