The Sharks are in familiar territory as they head out on the road for Games 3 and 4 after splitting the first two games of their best-of-seven series at SAP Center. Now, they'll look to get back in the win column Wednesday when they visit the St. Louis Blues for a critical Game 3 of the Western Conference final.
Team Teal is coming off a disappointing 4-2 loss to the Blues in Game 2. Logan Couture scored both goals for San Jose, with his second marker on the evening counting for the 100th postseason point of his professional career.
The Sharks are 24-16 all-time in Game 3 situations and are 10-8 all-time on the road in third game of a series. They are 2-4 on the road so far through these playoffs, while the Blues are 3-4 at Enterprise Center.
