SAN JOSE, CA (KTVI) - The St. Louis Blues’ season ended Wednesday night in defeat as the San Jose Sharks jumped out to an early advantage and didn’t yield despite a late St. Louis surge in a 5-2 win to claim the Western Conference Championship.

Brian Elliott was back in goal after Jake Allen got the starts in Games 4 and 5 and had to withstand an early rush from the Sharks that included the fourth goal of the series for San Jose’s Joe Pavelski.  San Jose’s Joel Ward added his second and third goals of the series with tallies in the second and third periods to make it 3-0.

Vladimir Tarasenko ended his series-long scoring drought with a goal midway through the third period and another with 3:35 to cut the deficit to 4-2, but it proved too little too late.

This is San Jose’s first trip to the Stanley Cup Final. The Blues have not been back to the Cup Final since 1970.

Fox 2 Sports Director Martin Kilcoyne was in the Blues locker room after the season ending loss and has the emotional post game report.
