NHL Update: Blues Join The Bruins And Hurricanes In The NHL “Semis”

May 8, 2019

Last night, St. Louis native Pat Maroon scored in the second overtime, lifting the St. Louis Blues (2-1) vs the Dallas Stars in game 7 and into the NHL semi-final round for the eighth time in this their 51st season (’68-’19, no NHL season in ’05).

The Stars also in their 51st season, having started in Minnesota as the North Stars and the Blues’ opponent in their first game ever, got a brilliant 52 save effort from another St. Louis native, Ben Bishop, albeit in a loss.

Earlier in these ‘offs, the current and somewhat heavy top choice to win it all, the Boston Bruins, squared their all-time ‘offs series record at (8-8) when they 7’d the Toronto Maple Leafs.

Now the Blues are (8-6) in playoff(s) series vs the Stars/North Stars franchise, (4-1) in seventh games, (5-1) in decisive games and (3-1) in decisive overtime games.

While the Eastern Conference final series is set, with the Bruins facing the Carolina Hurricanes, once their old neighbors, the Hartford Whalers–the Blues either will travel to San Jose (Sharks) or host the Colorado Avalanche in game 1 of the “semis,” depending on the outcome of tonight’s game 7 in “Jose,” between the Sharks and ‘Lanche.
