With a 2-1 win over the San Jose Sharks on Friday night, the St. Louis Blues have evened up the Western Conference Final against the Sharks at 2-2. It comes as no surprise that this series has been so close and hard fought, as the two evenly-matched teams have created an entertaining series so far. Although there is not really any Wild news yet, the draft is coming up in just about a month, so we will have plenty to write and talk about in the next month or so. These articles and links below will hopefully give you something hockey related to read and think about as there are no games on Saturday for the first time in a while.
