Sharks Vs. Blues Game 4 Final Score: San Jose On Brink Of Elimination After 2-1 Loss

The San Jose Sharks hosted the St. Louis Blues on Thursday night in hopes of evening up their first-round best-of-seven series before heading back to the Midwest. Unfortunately, it is beginning to become clear that this is not San Jose's year. The team looked punchless on Thursday while suffering a 2-1 loss and is now behind 3-1 in the series.

B.J. Crombeen scored for the Blues at just 7:12 in the first period and would never look back. They added a second goal at 12:00 of the third period on as Andy McDonald found the net on a power play, giving him three goals so far in the 2012 NHL Stanley Cup playoffs.

The Sharks were finally able to break up the shutout as they went with the empty net in the final two minutes and Joe Thornton scored at 18:53, but San Jose was unable to get another decent chance to tie in the final minute.

The Sharks have looked lost on the ice for much of the time since their Game 1 victory. It is appearing as though they will need a miracle to pull off three straight wins and advance.
