Jaden Schwartz - Ryan O’Reilly - Vladimir Tarasenko
Brayden Schenn - Oskar Sundqvist - David Perron
Pat Maroon - Tyler Bozak - Robert Thomas
Robby Fabbri - Ivan Barbashev - Alexander Steen
Joel Edmundson - Alex Pietrangelo
Jay Bouwmeester - Colton Parayko
Carl Gunnarsson - Vince Dunn
First Period -
Not even three minutes into the game Jason Spezza scored on a pass from Tyler Seguin. Spezza skated in unchecked and Seguin found him to give the Stars a 1-0 lead.
The Blues outshot the Stars 13-10 in the period.
Second Period -
The man with no first name scored the Stars second goal with a little help from Jay Bouwmeester. Esa Lindell fired a backhanded shot on net. The puck deflected off of Jay Bouwmeester and past Binnington for the two goal lead.
Shots were even at 11 for the period.
Third Period -
The Blues finally got on the board. Ben Bishop turned the puck over. Jaden Schwartz was right there to fire the puck home. Robert Thomas was coming in hot on Bishop forcing him to make a play. He made the wrong one.
Unfortunately, that was the only goal that the Blues scored tonight. Never mind the fact that they had 4 power play chances. Never mind the fact that they peppered Bishop with 39 shots. The Blues were sloppy all night. Plain and simple. They now face elimination on Sunday.
From The Twitters:
Hey, no shit.
Schwartz on Game 6 Sunday: "Got to win or you go home, simple as that. Desperation level needs to be the highest its ever been. Got to play our best game and we feel confident going in there." #stlblues— Jeremy Rutherford (@jprutherford) May 4, 2019
From the hope this doesn’t come back to bite you in the ass department:

Yeah so someone tweeted the Blues account...
Under no circumstances should you tweet a team account to tell them that you hope their plane crashes. Apparently that's a reminder that some people need. Thx.— Elise Butler (@elisebutler) May 4, 2019
It’s not? Shit.
Fact: Twitter “fans” for #stlblues and #GoStars don’t represent an entire fanbase. Lived in Dallas for 2 years and went to a ton of games..w/Blues jersey on. The real fans are good people & respectful. Same thing with STL fans to opposing fans. Fact: Twitter isn’t real life ♂️— 2AvgGuys (@2AvgGuys) May 4, 2019
#STLBlues in Game Fives at home with series tied at 2-2 since 2013:— Tim McKernan (@tmckernan) May 4, 2019
'13 vs Kings: L
'14: vs Blackhawks: L
'15 vs Wild: L
'16: vs Sharks: L
'17: vs Predators: L

In '13, '14, '15, '16, and '17, they would lose the series in the next game on the road in Game Six.
