Blues Bounce Back, Win Game 4 vs. Sharks to Even Western Conference Finals 2-2

The St. Louis Blues had some bad luck cost them Game 3.

They didn't wait long to take control of Game 4 and even the Western Conference Finals at two games apiece.

Ivan Barbashev scored in the game's first minute and the Blues never trailed on their way to a 2-1 victory over the San Jose Sharks on Friday.

Tyler Bozak also scored for St. Louis, while goaltender Jordan Binnington bounced back from an ugly Game 3 to stop 29 of the 30 shots that went his way.

The Blues defense also did an excellent job of protecting Binnington, blocking 21 shots, while the Sharks attack looked completely defanged for most of the game.
