Back east we’ve got two fast, hard-hitting, well-rounded teams, that frankly play fairly similar games. Out west is a more intriguing clash of styles: The Blues are more defensive minded, more deliberate, more physical, while the Sharks thrive on offense, speed, puck movement, and the most exciting power play going. So it’s not really a surprise that the first two games have seen St. Louis hang tight to a close win and San Jose even things up with a straight smiting.
