Boston Bruins Obliterate St.Louis Blues In Game 3 Of Stanley Cup, 7-2 Final
The Boston Bruins fell to the St. Louis Blues in game 2 of the Stanley Cup Finals in overtime.
Many wondered how Boston would respond after the series was tied up a 1 apiece, well on Saturday that response was rather vicious.
The B’s on the road obliterated the Blues 7-2 in game 3 of the Stanley Cup Finals to take a 2-1 series lead in a game that was never in doubt.
Boston scored three goals in the first period alone jumping out to a 3-0 lead going into the 2nd period. The 2nd started off in similar fashion with David Pastrnak making it 4-0, four straight unanswered goals to start a Stanley Cup Finals game.
The Blues in the 3rd period scored 5:24 into the period after a sequence of play that was rather poor for Boston. But with 5 minutes to go in the game the Blues pulled their goaltender.
Boston’s topline which has had its fair share of criticism for it’s issues accounted for two of the goals scored on the night.
The B’s recorded 24 shots on goal compared to St.Louis’s 29. Goaltender Tuukka Rask saved 27 of 29 shots for a .931 save percentage.
The second goal let in by Rask was a shot that was going wide of the net but redirected off Brandon Carlo.
With the win the Bruins take a 2-1 series lead and will prepare for game 4 of the series which will also be at the Blues. Game 4 is slated for June 3rd at 8:00 pm.
