i dont think murray was exposed as much as people are saying. i think he cleaned up the corners really nice, which is something they were doing all night.
also hilarity from a blues writer on the NHL recap:
There was a pick play by San Jose's Logan Couture on St. Louis' Vladimir Sobotka on the play that helped create some room for Clowe to get a soft backhand pass to Havlat. He made no mistake in firing a shot that seemed to glance off the Blues' Barret Jackman and beat Halak on the near side
Havlat was able to free himself after knocking Alex Pietrangelo out of the play on what could have been an interference call. But with no whistle, Pietrangelo was late getting back into defensive position and allowed Boyle to skate in and let go a shot; Havlat was able to redirect it high into the net past Halak for a 1-0 lead. It was San Jose's first goal in this building this season, a span of 146:02 in 2011-12 and 150:58 dating back to last season.
But Berglund tied the game just 54 seconds into the third period, deflecting Shattenkirk's right point shot between his legs and over Niemi's right shoulder, triggering an eruption from the sellout crowd of 19,333.
Berglund struck again after taking a pass from Andy McDonald. The Sharks came in shorthanded and got caught on an odd-man rush, with McDonald feeding Berglund, who skated around Joe Pavelski and snapped a shot past Niemi 7:28 into the third for a 2-1 lead
