San Jose And St. Louis Have Reasons To Win

from Pierre LeBrun of ESPN,

The Blues-Sharks first-round series has reached its first critical moment.

“We’ve got to win,” Sharks captain Joe Thornton said Thursday morning after his team’s optional skate. “We’re down 2-1, and we need to win this home game. That’s the bottom line.”

“It’s a big game, for sure,” Sharks winger Martin Havlat added. “We just want to be better than we were the other night. I don’t think we played the way we wanted to.”

The Blues, on the other hand, want to avoid making this a lengthy travel series, given the two time zones it involves.

“This is a huge game,” said Blues center Scott Nichol, who knows all too well what his former team in San Jose is capable of. “We know it. We’ve addressed it. By far we’re not satisfied of where we’re at. We played well last game but we can be better.”
