Listen: Stanley Cup Playoffs Daily: Blues push Sharks to the brink
"Us now after a big Blue's win in San Jose. Alex Ferrario thanks for coming on overnight, America. Well right now. Right. I'm so inept up. I'll come on, anytime you want. At this point, I'm getting sick of all the San Jose fans. It's like Crimea river already. So the blues after the debacle with the NHL, who has since admitted they made a mistake, when it came to the hand pass, the have come out swinging. They've only lit up one goal in the last two games a big five nothing victory today in San Jose with game. The next game game six coming to Saint Louis on Tuesday night. I wanna get your impressions of this big game five victory. What are your thoughts? Well, honestly if surprised at how much they dominated the betas as sharks, you know, I'd go back to that game six against the one picked. Yes, Ryan, where what was on the brink of elimination and blues held them to two or three shots. I believe through the first two periods of the game. And you know this I think was the biggest game of the season for both teams. I mean, I don't think either side what's to be down three to two in the series, and especially now that it's coming back to St Louis where the blues can eliminate San Jose Sharks, where they're two for two and elimination games playing in St Louis. So I was very surprised at how much the Blu Ray able to dominate San Jose Sharks. But the end of the day you just gotta take into the Packers. I mean Jordan bidding to outstanding for the shot that he did see the blue defense was even better limiting David n shots. The final two periods of the game. But at the end of the day, I mean, the blues have gotten to stand. Jose sharks. They're in their head. I mean I you have an air Carlson was injured. Didn't play the third period. Philosophy hurdle is injured and didn't play in the third period and then three other guys left early in the third period, two of them because they tried to get fancy a nasty with their place. So they were down to nine eight or eight skaters at the end of the hockey game. So I mean, the blues just completely dominated Ryan, and they got into the day, sharks his head. And, you know, I think right now the sharks are way way big underdogs going into Tuesday night in in game. Six. Yeah. And the way that the blues have just been able to play their game. They're playing solid hockey in. It's just amazing to see how they could smother the opportunities of the opponent. We saw towards the end of the last series. And now we're seeing with the given a very limited shots and even quality shots against San Jose. So comes back here. And I think the blues got the eye of the tiger. You know how exciting this is for Saint Louis to know we could close this out and go to the Stanley Cup finals on home ice. I know the pressure is there, but the blues are looking so good. Yeah, they really are. And I mean you know you gotta take him to the consideration. Some of the other things from the game today to Ryan you know, the offense terrorists Saco with three point four points. But the goal in to assist James sports with another hat trick. I mean, we spent we spent so much time throughout the postseason talking about where the big names are where the top scores are. And now they're starting to show their faces against the San Jose Sharks team. And this is huge coming back to say Lewis because not only are you going for an elimination game while you're trying to do something that hasn't been done since nineteen seventy I mean, think about that, for a minute, almost fifty years since the blues have been in a Stanley Cup final, and they could police their spot to go to that on Tuesday night in Saint Louis and taking a consideration. Everything that took place that season from firing Mike, yo to bringing in Craig ruby as the interim head coach and springing up, Jordan Bennington. And fighting through adversity and fighting through everybody. That said there's no chance of loose can do this. And now they're about to push their ticket to the family Cup finalists. Just incredible. Think about in. I mean, honestly, it gives me goosebumps to think about how loud enterprise center, we'll be back to twenty sixteen. When the blues eliminated Chicago Blackhawks from the playoffs in the first round and means that place blew the roof off of the Scott Trade Center at the time. Yeah, multiply that a hundred if they pull out a victory on Tuesday night, and I think it's a big if because look San Jose Sharks knack for gets the wall. And if they could find a way to get their injured is in the lineup. They're going to be dangerous team to deal with plus the watch party that they had is a pretty good indicator. The fans are just ready man. They are a Hong grief for this. How cool was it to see that? Yeah. Yeah. Petrocelli are phenomenal food assistance through regular season. In most seasons. That'd be a video. He was there. And from what I understand they sold out that enterprise, and now they weren't selling out tickets for the top fortune. They were telling them for the lower portion, but you said that they were sold out that place was loud, that place was Brockie in, in the top dad. Both part of village was shoulder to shoulder from what I understand watching those games. So the city is guiding for a Stanley Cup championship. The city is dying to be in the finals and to be in there is one thing. Let's do it with the storyline that the blues put together this season. I mean, if you think about it Ryan this could go down. If the blues were to accomplish this daily come this could go down as one of the best duck and tap run in the history of the National Hockey him, it could go down as one of the best seasons in the National Hockey League for a team that was. Last in the NHL January stuck in considered to be done talking about trading away their top players. And now you're sitting here talking about playing the Boston Bruins in the first earned the final round of the Stanley Cup playoff just on real to think about it is really is. So this is really unreal. Five wins is all it's gonna take now five wins to be that close considering where we were just in January. So I wanted to talk to you about the game. That's on Tuesday night. The blues have been looking great ever since that hand pass man. They've been ignited they got that either tiger going on. What are you looking for on Tuesday night here in Saint Louis? Oh, you're gonna have to look for them to be responsible. Because like I mentioned San Jose is going to be a very dangerous team. I mean look they're one of the highest scoring teams of the regular season in the postseason for the NHL and you know that all centers around what will happen with Erik Carlson. I found it really interesting today after the game, you know, was asked if he looks back on his decision of playing Eric Carlson and regrets it. And, you know, he said hindsight, you can't really sit there. But you got to do it all over again. Yeah, you probably would have spread Carlson because of that nagging groin injury and didn't play the third period. So look, you gotta wait to find out what the lineup it'd be a look like if we're gonna have a Carlson Belsky hurdle looking to any of those big time players for the game. But, you know, Tuesday's gonna come down to the blues remaining focused on what they're trying to accomplish. You know, these guys have talked about how big it was Craig ruby to come into the locker room after game three without hand fast and tell them it's done move on. Get ready for this one. And I think that is the reason why the team is where they are right now trying to win. It's hard to go to Stanley Cup. Yeah. You know, it's, it's going to have to be ready for that game going gonna have to be ready for a hard push from the San Jose Sharks in the first period. But who's got the fan side behind him. They got the whole night's behind them enough to click. So I think if they just do what they've done so far this season. And then in the postseason, I again I know it sounds dumb, but simple hockey is what's going to win the series for them. I gotta say that Tarasenko shootout goal Goldman or the penalty. Schott. What a laser shot from him man. And I think that these players I mean they're going out there and you saw kind of a balancing act. Sometimes you see the star player step up and sometimes you see the role player step up. You've had a pretty good mix of that going in which is pretty good indicator. Plus, you've got a great backstop with Bennington that's been playing well what an exciting time. Can I just vent about one thing? I'm so. Sick of NBC in their coverage of this, you know, every time they go back to their analysis. They could care less about Saint Louis, you know, they, they focus, here's what San Jose's doing wrong in. Here's their chances of coming back. They could care less about Saint Louis. I'm getting so sick of this. Yeah. Me. You know what I guess I should say surprise me those kinda surprised because if you look at the TV ratings in this in the previous game and really throughout the playoffs Louis is dominated television ratings for these days, which goes to show you that people in St Louis care, the people outside of St Louis, tear keeping more about watching this thing. Sixteen people saying they don't even really care about hockey. They were going after the third goal scoring. I know on afternoon. So but you know what? What's four frustrating to me is just the consistent. I dunno pumping the tires of players like Joe Thornton, and players like jokes Avella ski and Logan. The tour. I, I mean just any chance, they get the talking about how great it would be killed when a Stanley Cup for the amount of time. He's been in the NHL what's up forget about Jake Bohm Easter who's been in the NHL just as long as Joe Thornton, who's never wanna Stanley Cup. I think that's a very intriguing side of it. And then you're. Talking about Logan could tour with his eleven goals in the postseason, which is, you know, high up there since two thousand ten with Alex. Oh, betchine's. Well, let's look at Jay Schwartz. Who's one goal away from tying a blues record for most postseason goals with bread home. And I like I get it. You wanna California team in there if you're NBC, and you want the California Boston, west coast, east coast at the end of the day they never wanna Stanley Cup was dying for Stanley Cup."
