After a commanding game 6 win in St. Louis, the Bruins are bringing the series back to Boston for game 7. The Boston Bruins struck early on a 5-on-3 man advantage last night for the first goal of the game. Boston took the lead and ran with it as they were able to stay strong throughout the whole game.
Scoring only one in the first, both teams were left off the scoreboard until the third period. The Bruins tacked on 4 more goals in the third while the Blues were only able to net 1.
The Bruins powerplay yet again put them atop. They went 1/4 on the man advantage and were a perfect 4/4 on the penalty kill.
Tuukka Rask also looked better than he had all postseason, which is astounding for how good he has been.
Rask stopped 28 pucks on 29 shots. Making unbelievable save after save he was able to put his team ahead to even the series.
Game 7 will take place on Wednesday night in Boston.
The Bruins have lost two finals games at home already. On the other end of the spectrum, Rask has stopped 90 of 91 shots when having the chance to eliminate their opponent.
They will have to beat Jordan Binnington again though. As said before, Bennington’s numbers after a loss are minute.
We will see a winner on Wednesday night, but it would not come as a surprise if either team were able to pull out a victory.
