Blues Host Crucial Game 5 Tonight

Troy Brouwer and Kyle Brodziak each scored twice, Jake Allen stopped 31 shots in his first start of the postseason and the Blues bounced back from consecutive shutout losses to beat the San Jose Sharks 6-3 in Game 4 on Saturday night.

Along with giving Allen the start, Coach Ken Hitchcock put the struggling Robby Fabbri and Vladimir Tarasenko on the same line with Lehtera and put defenseman Joel Edmundson back in the lineup after benching him in Game 3.


Brouwer and Jori Lehtera scored in the first period and the Blues rolled after getting dominated the previous two games when they were outscored 7-0. Alex Pietrangelo added an empty-netter to seal it.


Now it will be up to San Jose to reverse the momentum in Game 5 on Monday night in St. Louis.


Blues captain David Backes did not play in the final two periods and Fabbri also left with an injury in the third. Hitchcock said he expected both players to play in Game 5.
