49 Years Later, Another Bruins/Blues NHL Final Series Awaits (As Re Casablanca Refugees “And Waits, Waits”)

May 22, 2019

The St. Louis Blues advanced to their first NHL final series since 1970, when they represented the expansion division, NHL West, winning their semi-final series vs the San Jose Sharks, in 6 games.

As was the case in 1970, the Blues will meet a “streaking” Boston Bruins’ team in the NHL final, this one not beginning until Monday night, which is 5 days hence.

In ’70 the Bruins won their last 10 games en route to their first title in 29 years, the last 4 vs the Blues.

This season the Bruins, who also swept the Blues in the ’72 semis, also en route to another Bobby Orr led title, go into the final with seven straight victories and will be decent sized, series favorites.

However, the Blues have already written quite a story in coming from last place in the whole league, to this final round appearance.

I will have many more notes in the days ahead and look forward to what I believe will be an intriguing NHL final.
