We've seen this match up in the playoffs before and while it's early in the season it's hard to see two teams in the Western Conference that are better than these two. San Jose has been off to a red hot start and they've been doing it in dominant fashion. They've got a youngster in Tomas Hertl who is taking the National Hockey League by storm and they've got a great mix of players who just seem to understand what's expected of them right now and are executing their game play to perfection. Any time you put up the number of shots on goals that the Sharks are you know that things are clicking about as well as possible. One team that has always been able to solve the Sharks is the St. Louis Blues and they'll look to do that again on Tuesday night. The Blues defeated the New York Rangers 5-3 on Saturday night in a game where they caught a few breaks on some weak goals allowed by Martin Biron. Still, when you're a hockey club as good as the Blues those are the types of breaks you get. They know how to shut down the Sharks but they're going to be tested because right now San Jose is on fire. This one is going to be a lot of fun on Tuesday night but with two teams this evenly matched it's always nice to take the value.
