The San Jose Sharks opened up the Western Conference finals firing on all cylinders with a 6-3 win over the St. Louis Blues in Game 1, and Timo Meier's name is written all over it.

Meier finished Saturday night's matchup with two goals and an assist along with some highlight reel moments to add to his resume.

The Sharks found the net first just four minutes into the game when Meier and Gustav Nyquist assisted Logan Couture on the inaugural goal of the series. Meier's next contribution to the stat sheet came in the second period when he forced a turnover in his own offensive zone and faked out Blues goaltender Jordan Binnington to give San Jose a 4-2 lead.

The third-year winger bested Binnington again seven minutes later with a tricky shot from behind the net. Meier has 13 points in 15 games this postseason, the fifth most among players still competing in the playoffs.
