NHL Playoffs: What channel is Sharks vs. Blues Game 1 on?


Here is where you can watch Game 1 of the Western Conference Finals between the St. Louis Blues and the San Jose Sharks.

Both teams are seeking their first Stanley Cup victory. If the Blues win this conference, they’ll play for the Cup for the first time since 1970. The Sharks are trying to reach the Stanley Cup Final for the first time in franchise history.

The Sharks won two of three games against the Blues in the regular season, but the Blues won their most recent game 1-0. This will be their fifth meeting in postseason history; the teams are 2-2 against each other, with the Blues winning their most recent meeting in five games, in 2012.

Jaden Schwartz, Vladimir Tarasenko and Jori Lehtera will unite once again for Game 1 against the Sharks. If they remain consistent, the line will balance out the scoring among the team’s top three lines. The Sharks, meanwhile, will rely upon Tomas Hertl, Joe Thornton and Joe Pavelski to get the lead tonight. The Sharks so far have been dominant on the ice through their deadly power play, which is converting at 31 percent clip in the playoffs.  Yet, the Blues’ success at the net may threaten this record, as they are scoring at 27.5 percent during the postseason. They have also picked up five road wins, the most in a single playoff year in franchise history.

Game 1 between the Blues and the Sharks is tonight, Sunday, May 15 at 8:00 p.m. ET at the Scottrade Center. You can watch the game on NBC Sports Network or online using NBC Sports Live Extra.
