Slow start dooms Sharks in Game 4 loss to Blues

The Sharks allowed first period goals to Ivan Barbashev and Tyler Bozak and never fully recovered, as the St. Louis Blues earned a 2-1 victory in Game 4 of the Western Conference Final to level the series at two wins apiece.

His shot toward the net appeared to be redirected by Gus Nyquist, and the puck got by Jones for a 1-0 Blues lead 35 seconds into the game.

At the 17:53 mark of the first, moments after Melker Karlsson had a glorious scoring chance stopped by Binnington, Bozak was credited with his fourth goal of the playoffs as the Blues took a 2-0 lead.
