Sharks’ Brent Burns Forced Into Horrible Turnover, Allows Ivan Barbashev To Score
- Tyler Bozak and Ivan Barbashev scored in the first period for the Blues and hung on to beat the Sharks 2-1, tying up the series at 2-2.
- Brent Burns gives away the puck in the Sharks’ defensive zone, Ivan Barbashev was quickest to react and scores for the opener.
- Burns and turnover goes together like bread and butter this season.
- Maybe Drew Doughty was right.
- Maybe Burns doesn’t deserve to be nominated for the Norris after all.
- He can create offensive plays, but he’s been terrible in his zone all season.
- Ivan Barbashev (0:35) is the second Blues player to score in the opening minute of a game in the 2019 Stanley Cup Playoffs.
Hockey writers: “The Norris shouldn’t be decided on points.”

Ivan Barbashev on the #stlblues‘ defensive determination in Game 4: “I think in the second and the third we gave them a lot of chances. I think they took over for a long time — a couple really long shifts — but we did a really good job defending.” pic.twitter.com/xTk3ZbqAw8
