Sharks’ Burns Scores Two Power-Play Goals, Jones Gets Shutout
Brent Burns scored San Jose’s first two power-play goals of the Western Conference finals and Martin Jones stopped 26 shots for his second shutout of the postseason as the Sharks beat the St. Louis Blues 4-0 Tuesday night to even the series at a game apiece.
Tommy Wingels and Dainius Zubrus also scored and Logan Couture had two assists to help the Sharks bounce back from a tight loss in the opener.
Game 3 is Thursday night in San Jose.
Brian Elliott made 20 saves for St. Louis, which is 4-5 at home and 5-2 on the road in the postseason. Elliott wasn’t as sharp as he’s been throughout the Blues’ run to their first conference final since 2001.
Burns’ fifth and sixth goals of the postseason both came on one-timers with Troy Brouwer in the penalty box, and were his only shots of the game.
