Blues Vs. Sharks Game One: Third Period Score: Berglund Scores Twice, Game Goes To OT Tied 2-2

There’s a member of the St. Louis Blues who wants to win this game, and that’s Patrik Berglund. The big Swede scored both of the Blues’ goals in the period, and he did it the best way that he knows how — positioning in front of the net.

He scored his first goal to tie the game just 54 seconds in on a tip-in of a Kevin Shattenkirk shot:

His next goal exploited the Sharks’ questionable penalty kill, but the set-up was all Andy McDonald . The little waterbug has been all over the ice tonight, attempting to put the team on his back. It’s a little heavy, so he handed it off to Berglund:

Unfortunately, the 2-1 lead was not to last. With just over five minutes left, Andrew Desjardins snapped it past Halak:

A bit of a defensive breakdown on Roman Polak’s part didn’t help. Everyone’s allowed mistakes, but they can be costly in playoff hockey. Thankfully there is no shootout or 4-on-4 overtime in the playoffs, so the Blues can continue playing normal hockey. Here’s hoping it ends quickly with a puck behind Antti Niemi.
