SAN JOSE, Calif. – When Robert Bortuzzo last scored a playoff goal, he was a rookie. In junior hockey.
It was 2007 and Bortuzzo was a lanky 18-year-old when he scored for the Kitchener Rangers in an OHL playoff game. Twelve years later, the 30-year-old St. Louis Blues defenceman can’t remember the goal.
But he’ll never forget the one he scored Monday when, with the San Jose Sharks in a feeding frenzy, he worked a beautiful give-and-go with blue-line partner Joel Edmundson, skated away from 39-year-old Joe Thornton, and buried a backhand top corner to break a 2-2 tie and send St. Louis on to a 4-2 win that evened the Western Conference Final at 1-1.
