Fanduel cheekily refunds Blues bettors after controversial Sharks win

Fanduel cheekily refunds Blues bettors after controversial Sharks win St. Louis Blues fans, rightfully, were incensed after a missed hand pass led to a game-winning Sharks goal in Game 3 of the Western Conference Finals. While those who play hockey for the Blues still have a chance to win the series, those who gambled on the Blues will never see that money again. The daily fantasy site Fanduel, in a canny bit of self-promotion, is doing what it can to rectify this injustice. 

William Karlsson turns on the jets and beats Martin Jones with an incredible between-the-legs shot, giving the Golden Knights a 3-2 lead with a shorthanded

Karlsson has taken some time to adjust to his new team after being acquired from Ottawa just before the start of training camp. Joe Pavelski scored the first of his two goals shortly after Karlsson ’s tally, and Evander Kane followed with another as the Sharks struck three times in 4 :11 against Chad

ST. LOUIS — Erik Karlsson scored 5:23 into overtime after the officials missed a hand pass by Timo Meier, and the San Jose Sharks rallied to beat the St. Louis Blues 5-4 on Wednesday night to take a 2-1 lead in the Western Conference final.

Meier used his right hand to knock a loose puck toward the front of the net. Gustav Nyquist then passed it over to Karlsson, who beat Jordan Binnington for his second goal of the game.

SAN JOSE — According to Sharks president Jonathan Becher, Erik Karlsson used some colorful language as he celebrated his power play goal early in the second period. In this case, using inappropriate language only seems appropriate considering that Karlsson waited 45 days and 21

Binnington and the Blues complained immediately about Meier's pass. The officials huddled while Karlsson and the Sharks celebrated, but the play wasn't reviewable and the goal stood.

Game 4 of the best-of-seven series is Friday night in St. Louis.

The Blues led 4-3 before Logan Couture tied it with 61 seconds left in regulation. Joe Thornton scored twice for San Jose, and Martin Jones made 28 saves.

David Perron had two goals for St. Louis, and Vladimir Tarasenko and Alexander Steen also scored. Colton Parayko had three assists, and Jordan Binnington made 27 stops.

The Blues trailed 2-0 after one and 3-1 in the second before rallying.

Tarasenko, who faced criticism after a lackluster performance in Game 1, started the comeback with his first goal in six games at 4:05 of the second. Perron tied it by beating Jones on the stick side with a wrist shot from the left dot with 3:57 left in the period.

Blues GM Doug Armstrong curses out 'garbage' officials for blown call

Blues GM Doug Armstrong curses out 'garbage' officials for blown call The St Louis Blues were screwed on a blown call by the officials during Game 3 of the Western Conference final that left everyone on their team upset. That included their GM, who let the referees hear it. According to NHL.com reporter Lou Korac, Blues GM Doug Armstrong slammed his hand on the officials’ door and cursed, calling them/their mistake “garbage.” #stlblues GM Doug Armstrong just slammed his hand on the officials door. Very upset, yelled "(expletive) garbage." — Lou Korac (@lkorac10) May 16, 2019 The San Jose Sharks won the game 5-4 on an overtime goal by Erik Karlsson.

Erik Karlsson (groin) is no longer skating every day, per DeBoer, as his rehab continues. Vegas forward Reilly Smith grabbed a loose puck after Joe Thornton's shot went wide, and threaded a pass to streaking linemate William Karlsson who only had Sharks backup goaltender Aaron Dell to beat .

I just love this song and wanted to share it on youtube so everyone can enjoy it. You can download it (and even license it) on the EpidemicSound website.

St. Louis went on a power play after Brent Burns took down Oskar Sundqvist late in the period. Perron scored his second goal of the series a minute later, giving the Blues the lead with their first power-play goal in 19 chances with the man advantage.
