Forward Joel Ward scored two goals to help the San Jose Sharks defeat the visiting St. Louis Blues 5-2 Wednesday night and advance to the Stanley Cup Championship Series for the first time in their history.
The Sharks coasted to the victory, grabbing a 4-0 lead before the Blues could break San Jose's shutout bid with a goal at 11:39 of the third period. Ward's goals were his fifth and sixth of the postseason. He also netted two in the Sharks' 6-3 triumph over the Blues in St. Louis on Monday. Logan Couture also had a big night for San Jose Wednesday, notching three points -- two assists and an empty-net goal. He assisted on Ward's second goal, which gave the Sharks a 3-0 lead early in the third. Couture then assisted on the Sharks' fourth goal, scored by Joonas Donskoi, his fifth of the postseason. Couture's goal, at 19:40 of the third period, was his eighth of the postseason. He also has 16 assists. Joe Pavelski opened the scoring at 3:57 of the first period with his 15th goal of the playoffs. The Sharks won the Western Conference Final in six games. They will face the Eastern Conference Final winner -- Pittsburgh or Tampa Bay -- in the Stanley Cup Final. May 25 - 11:50 PM
