The Boston Bruins Lead The Cup Final, Two Games To One

June 2, 2019

The Boston Bruins, bidding to make Boston just the second city (Detroit with the Tigers, Lions and Red Wings in 1935-1936)  to win consecutive baseball, football and either hockey or basketball titles in the same year/season, routed the Blues (7-2) in game 3, to take a (2-1) NHL final round series lead.

It is just the second time in their last 8 Stanley Cup/NHL final round appearances, that the Bruins have as much as a (2-1) series lead after three games.

After not doing so in 5 consecutive final round losses (’74,’77,’78,’88 and ’90) and in a final round win in ’11, the Bruins took a (2-1) final round lead vs Chicago (Blackhawks) in ’13, however, “Chi” rallied to win the next three games and the title.

Torey Krug became the first Bruins’ player to amass as many as 4 points in a Cup final game, while Patrice Bergeron opened the scoring with a goal, accounting for his 100th playoffs point.
