Home I Latest News I NHL Stanley Cup Finals: Blues Eying History
The NHL Stanley Cup Finals are really heating up and the St. Louis Blues are just one win away from hoisting their first ever Stanley Cup trophy. They could get that historic W in front of their home crowd tonight. Game 6 vs the Boston Bruins is coming up at 7pm from the Enterprise Center in St. Louis.
In the NHL, momentum is everything. After the Bruins absolutely embarrassed the Blues 7-2 in Game 3, the Blues took back two in a row, outscoring the Bruins 6-3. St. Louis has shifted into the driver’s seat and has two chances to win one game. The Blues are now slotted to win the series at -300 with a 75% implied probability of success.
Blues tender Jordan Binnington is playing some sensational hockey, stopping 38 shots in the Game 5 road win. One more victory for Binnington gets him a spin with the Cup as well as a new NHL record for most postseason wins by a rookie goaltender with 16. He’s also the new Blues favorite for the Conn Smyth Trophy.
Lord Stanley’s Cup will be in the building tonight, adding to the pressure. For the Bruins, coming back to win it all isn’t a foreign idea. In 2011, they fought back from a 3-2 deficit to defeat the Vancouver Canucks. But they’ll have to be perfect to win Game 6 in front of more than 18,000 Blues fans and carry that perfection into Game 7.
The Bruins are coming into Game 6 with a bit of a gripe regarding the officiating as of late, specifically a no-call in Game 5 when Tyler Bozak took out Bruins forward Noel Acciari from behind. Acciari had to leave the game and seconds later, David Perron scored to put the Blues up 2-0.
“It’s right in front of the official,” Bruins Coach Cassidy said. “It’s a slew foot. Our guy’s gone. The spotter took him out of the game for a possible concussion. It’s blatant. It had a big effect on the game.”
It also had a big effect on the Bruins fans, who littered the ice with plastic bottles and cups along with chants of disapproval. Could this no-call could have the power to derail the Bruins and end their season? Or will it spark a fire on the Bruins bench?
Bruins Captain Zdeno Chara will do all he can to keep his team on track, even if it means playing with a broken jaw. The 42-year old took a puck to the face in Game 4, but was back 3 days later in a full face mask, playing almost 17 minutes in Game 5. He tallied two shots on goal, three blocked shots, and four hits.
