"The opportunity of rejoining the Rangers organization and returning home to NY, where my family and I have spent so many wonderful years, was one I simply could not pass up", Davidson said. "It's been fun to watch". Blues captain Alex Pietrangelo feels that "they just handed it over to them" when the refs didn't blow the whistle before the OT clinching goal was scored. He is the 10th rookie netminder to win at least 10 games in a single postseason in league history. Great goaltending has stolen many playoff series in the past, and it's hard to bet against Binnington at this moment. They limited chances tonight.
Ivan Barbashev scored unassisted:25 into the first period and Tyler Bozak added a power play goal later in the stanza. San Jose was a -250 favorite to advance to the Cup Final following Game 3, but those odds have now been lengthened to -120.
Barbashev gave the Blues a quick lead when his shot deflected off of Gustav Nyquist's stick and into the net just 35 seconds in. Binnington made the save on a Burns point shot, but the puck trickled through him like chicken laying an egg and into the crease behind him, and Hertl pushed it home for his 10th goal of the playoffs.
"We've got this, I've said it since the beginning, I've had a gut feeling we're going to bring the cup here", Toste said. "We've got a best-of-three left, we'll see how we do".

Blues D Vince Dunn missed Game 4 due to an upper-body injury.
"We can get better". I thought the second period, we just sat back too much.
Had the second period been a heavyweight bout, the ref would have stopped the fight. His poke-check from the neutral zone led to Timo Meier's first goal of the game.
The Blues had two options after that crushing Game 3 overtime loss. "It's 2-2", Sharks coach Pete DeBoer said of his team's situation. "But he is also very calculated in his messages and I think he set an incredible tone for our group".
"We were all disappointed in what happened, but it was good for him to come in and say that", said centre Ryan O'Reilly. "It's a great team over there, and we're still looking for a solid 60-(minute) performance". Will Lukas Radil or Dylan Gambrell be part of San Jose's offense? It was unclear if the current issue is related.
