(Sports Network) - The St. Michael Strahan Elite Jersey . Louis Blues will try to rebound from a tough double-overtime loss in their playoff opener, as they host the seventh-seeded San Jose Sharks tonight in Game 2 of the Western Conference quarterfinals at Scottrade Center. You can watch the game live on TSN and TSN Mobile TV at 7pm et/4pm pt and join our Game Night Blog to get playoff updates. Martin Havlat scored 3:34 into the second overtime to give the Sharks a 3-2 win over the second-seeded Blues in Game 1 on Thursday. St. Louis certainly needs a bounce-back performance tonight or it could be down 2-0 when the series shifts to San Jose for Games 3 and 4. The Blues were 30-6-5 as the home team during the regular season and 19-16-6 as the guest. The Blues, who are in the playoffs for just the second time in the post- lockout era, enter this postseason coming off their first Central Division title since 2000. St. Louis is hoping to avoid its fate from 12 years ago, when it won the division and claimed the top seed in the West only to get bounced out in the first round by San Jose. In the second extra session, Sharks forward Ryane Clowe chipped a backhand pass from the near the left boards to the inside left circle where Havlat one- timed it home to give the Sharks the series lead. Havlat had two goals while Andrew Desjardins scored the other for the Sharks, who have made it to the conference finals in each of the past two seasons, but failed to reach the Stanley Cup Finals both times. Antti Niemi made 40 stops in Thursdays win. Desjardins goal tied the game with 5:16 left in the third period for San Jose. "A lot of us have been here before these past few years," said San Jose head coach Todd McClellan. "Weve played overtime hockey in the playoffs and we kept calm. To me, thats a sign of veteran leadership." Patrik Berglund scored both goals for the Blues, while Jaroslav Halak made 31 saves in the loss. "We were the ones who made a number of big errors tonight and it cost us," said St. Louis head coach Ken Hitchcock. "Well take it hard tonight and get ready tomorrow and come back with a better effort on Saturday." Hitchcock has opted to go with Halak at the start of this series and will stick with the netminder tonight. The Blues had the NHLs best goaltending tandem this season with both Halak and Brian Elliott generating buzz as possible Vezina Trophy candidates. "He was like our team," Hitchcock said of Halak. "He had some real good moments and then some times, wed like him better. He was just like our team." The Sharks were just 17-17-7 as the visiting team during the regular season and would like to take a 2-0 series lead with them back to Northern California. San Jose, which will host Game 3 on Monday, had a strong 26-12-3 record at home in 2011-12. The first time San Jose and the Blues met in the postseason was in 2000, when the Sharks upset St. Louis in seven games. The teams have split two playoff encounters since with San Jose also taking the most recent meeting during the 2004 conference quarterfinals. Odell Beckham Jr White Jersey . Thea Culley, Brienne Stairs and Stephanie Jameson scored for the Canadians (1-1-3), who were already out of contention for a London Olympic berth in the six-country tournament. Steve Weatherford Blue Jersey . A CFL source told TSNs Matthew Scianitti that Smith will re-sign with the Toronto Argonauts. NEWARK, N.J. -- Dwight Howard aced his audition for the New Jersey Nets. The Orlando centre had 20 points and 17 rebounds, threw in a couple of blocks and dunks and had Nets fans chanting his name throughout the game in leading the Magic to a 108-91 victory on Wednesday night in what was certainly a showcase for next months trading-day deadline. Heres the situation heading into the March 15 deadline. Howard has asked to be traded and the Magic stand to lose the six-time All Star and the leading vote getter in this years exhibition game unless he signs an extension before becoming a free agent in July. "Right now my only concern is winning games, playing as hard as I can every night," said Howard, who rocked the rim several times with monster dunks in making 9 of 13 from the field. "Thats the only thing I can control. I put all the other thoughts aside. The only thing I can control is what I do on the court." Many in the crowd of 15,364 did their best to recruit the seven-year veteran for the Brooklyn-bound Nets. He got the loudest cheers in the pre-game introductions and many in the crowd had giants placards with his face on them, including one next to a placard that had the face of Nets All-Star guard Deron Williams. "Its a humbling experience," Howard said. "I wish more people could see how it feels to go into another arena and have the big faces, the posters. Its a blessing and a whole new experience. It feels good to have a great reception, not only here, but everywhere I go." Howard didnt disappoint the fans in leading the Magic to their ninth straight win over the Nets, who proudly put posters of their new arena in the hall leading to the Magic locker room. Nets centre Brook Lopez, who has been rumoured to be part of the package the Nets have dangled in front of Orlando, smiled when asked how the fans reacted. "It was interesting," said Lopez, who had 15 points in his second game back after surgery for a broken right foot. "It was definitely exciting. It brought great atmosphere to the game." Williams joked he was jealous about all the cheering for Howard. "I might not re-sign here because of that," said Williams, who had 23 points, six rebounds and eight assists to lead New Jersey, which headed into the All-Star break having lost 8 of 11. Glen Davvis, who hit his first seven shots, added 16 points for Orlando, which won for the eighth time in 11 games. Steve Weatherford Jersey. Rookie MarShon Brooks had a career-high 24 points for New Jersey, which basically lost the game in the opening 12 minutes. Orlando shot 62.5 per cent in the opening quarter and jumped to a 34-17 lead. The final 4:16 were the key with the Magic closing the quarter with a 13-2 spurt that came mostly with Howard sitting on the bench. Davis hit all four of his shots and Jameer Nelson, who also had eight points in the period, hit a 3-pointer, one of 13 on the night by Orlando. Nets fans started chanting: "We want Dwight" in the final minute and it continued late in the game. Orlando increased the lead to 22 points in the second quarter, and the only time it was challenged was in the third quarter when Williams put on a show for Howard, his good buddy, hitting three straight 3-pointers and scoring 12 straight points to get the Nets within 67-57. After New Jersey blew a couple of chances to get the lead under double figures, Orlando closed the quarter with a 16-9 spurt to take an 87-70 lead into the final quarter. JJ Redick started and ended the run with 3-pointers and Chris Duhon, who came off the bench to slow down Williams on the defensive end, sandwiched two 3-pointers and a jumper in scoring eight straight points for the Magic. Howard only played five minutes in the fourth quarter and then took in the adulation. "Obviously people are excited over potential stuff," said Magic forward Ryan Anderson, who added 14 points. "Its something that we dont let bother us or get in our heads. Its what we expected. Its going to happen at a lot of places because obviously we have the best guy in the NBA right now." Redick had 12 and Hedo Turkoglu and Nelson had 10 apiece for Orlando. NOTES: Nets played without power forward Kris Humphries, who was sidelined with a strained left calf. ... Nets F Shawne Williams had surgery earlier in the day to repair an old fracture and remove two small bone fragments in his left foot. He will miss the rest of the season. ...With all the injuries, this was the Nets 17th starting lineup. ...Orlando is 15-1 when it scores more than 100 points. ... Williams streak of 25-point games ended at six, tied for second best in Nets history. ' ' '
