Vladimir Sobotka was credited with a goal on the first shot of the game after Vlasic's gaffe. David Backes and David Perron also scored, and T.J.

Antti Niemi made 29 saves for the seventh-seeded Sharks, who were shut out in both regular-season meetings in St. Louis, with Halak and Elliott getting one apiece. The game turned feisty at th...
