Chris Tierney gained confidence from San Jose's 2016 playoff run.

Tierney was in his second NHL campaign at the time, but scored a solid four goals and nine points in 24 postseason contests. "I thought I was going to be a little more nervous going into the playoffs than I was, but once you get playing it kind of feels like you’re just playing another game. … I think I just got more confident every series that I could go up against [Anze] Kopitar, or [Ryan] Johansen, or [Alex] Steen, [Jori] Lehtera or [Vladimir] Tarasenko," he said. After recording 20 points in the 2015-16 regular season, he has two goals and eight points in 25 games this season.

The San Jose Sharks have been getting very good penalty killing in their first three games against St. Louis.

The Blues had the third best power play after the first two rounds of the playoffs, scoring at a 27.5 percent rate but the Sharks have held them to only one goal in nine attempts in the Conference Final. "We're playing really aggressive," center Chris Tierney said. "We're coming out hard on them and taking away their time and space. They've got a lot of skilled guys, if you give them time to set up and make plays they're going to hurt you."

Coach Peter Deboer likes using Chris Tierney as the third-line center.

"I think he's been great," DeBoer said. "Throwing a lot of responsibility at him, a lot of challenges at him. You look at some of the teams we've played, some of the matchups he's had to deal with, he's risen to all of the occasions we've presented him." The trio of Tierney, Joel Ward and Melker Karlsson saw plenty of shifts against the Blues' combination of Jori Lehtera, Vladimir Tarasenko and Jaden Schwartz in Game 1 of the Western Conference Final. St. Louis' top line posted seven shots on goal on Sunday, but Lehtera also had the game-winning goal. Still, Tierney went 6-for-10 in the faceoff circle and he has been doing solid work.

Matt Nieto and Brent Burns drew the assists on Tierney's second goal. Tierney's goals were the second and third of the playoffs, giving him four points in 11 playoff games this campaign.

Chris Tierney moved up to the third line center spot at the start of the third period Friday.

Coach Peter DeBoer switched Tierney and Matt Nieto as Tierney found himself between Patrick Marleau and Melker Karlsson while Nieto moved to the fourth line with Tommy Wingels and Nick Spaling. DeBoer thought that all four lines started to play better at that point and it resulted in the Sharks scoring five times in the final period for the win. Look for Tierney to start Game 2 on the third unit.
