St. Louis, Missouri- The San Jose Sharks were able to take back the home-ice advantage from the St. Louis Blues on Wednesday, taking game 3 by a score of 5-4. The game was decided in overtime by what many believe to be a hand pass by Sharks forward Timo Meier. After San Jose fought their way into the zone, Meier’s first attempt at a pass was deflected up into the air. Meier had lost his balance at this point and resorted to slapping the puck toward his opposite wing, Gustav Nyquist. Nyquist was then able to find a wide-open Erik Karlsson in front of an empty net, and he didn’t miss. Blues players and fans were furious after this play, and they were granted a meeting by the officials. The call was not overturned, and the Sharks skated off the ice victoriously. Of course, that play would be moot if the Blues were able to prevent the Sharks from scoring the last minute goal after they had pulled their goalie. The Sharks got two goals from their oldest player, future hall of famer Joe Thornton. Thornton is chasing his first Stanley Cup championship and is playing in his 21st season. Logan Couture was the hero in the third period, a role he has grown quite accustomed to during the playoffs. In 17 playoff games, he is leading the league with 20 points, including 14 goals. If the Sharks and Thornton want to finally catch that elusive championship, they’ll depend on Couture to keep it up.
