The Blues Now (1-13) In Final Round Games, Even The Final Vs The Bruins

May 30, 2019

The NHL/Stanley Cup final series is tied at a game apiece, as for the second straight year, a team sans a final round victory and down (1-0), won a one goal game on the road, to get even in the final round series. (Last year the Washington Capitals, (0-5) in previous final round games won by one goal in #2, recall Braden Holtby’s big save, and eventually won the title).

After Sean Kuraly’s third period goal put the Boston Bruins, once down (2-0), ahead to stay and give them an 8th straight win, that in game one, the St. Louis Blues rode defenseman Carl Gunnarsson’s first ever ‘offs goal, occurring early, in a Blues dominated overtime period, to win game 2 and end a 13 game final round losing streak, that had continued 49 years later in game 1.

Back to the Boston/St. Louis final round series history, the teams are even after two games for the seventh time in the ten such series, as three of the four NBA and baseball final round series between the cities, also stood at a game apiece.

In the other hockey final matching Boston and St. Louis, the Bruins swept the Blues.

Last night, the Blues won an ‘offs game vs Boston, for the first time in 10 tries.
