The St. Louis Blues are confident heading back on the road for Game 5 of the Western Conference Final against the San Jose Sharks on Sunday at SAP Center (3 p.m. ET; NBC, CBC, SN, TVAS).
The best-of-7 series is tied 2-2 after the Blues defeated the Sharks 2-1 in Game 4 on Friday.
"We're a confident group. We're a good road team and it's getting to our game early," center Ryan O'Reilly said. "Again we're taking it one game at a time and we want to get out there and establish our game right away. We tied the series. It's a best-of-3 now and we have to start preparing for the next one."
This is St. Louis' third straight series that is even heading into Game 5. They won Game 5 at the Winnipeg Jets in the first round, 3-2, after trailing 2-0 going into the third period, and lost 2-1 on home ice to the Dallas Stars before rallying to win the second round in seven games.
Those experiences provide the Blues a level of confidence as does being 6-2 on the road this postseason.
