Bruins Blow Out Blues To Force Game 7 For Stanley Cup
ST. LOUIS, Mo. -- The Stanley Cup Final is headed for a Game Seven.
The Bruins scored four goals in the third period and Tuukka Rask logged 28 saves in a 5-1 win over the Blues in St. Louis to even the series at three games each. Brad Marchand scored on a power play in the first period for Boston.
"We secured the puck. I though we played well defensively," said Bruins forward Patrice Bergeron. "We rely on our experience in these games. You've got to know what to expect.
Brandon Carlo, Karson Kuhlman, Zdeno Chara and David Pastrnak added third period goals. Ryan O'Reilly scored the St. Louis goal in the final period to cut the lead to 3-1.
"It was tough, you know," said O'Reilly. "Gave them a little jump and they started playing a little looser. It was a tough deficit to overcome, but we kept fighting, had a couple bad bounces and we just lost the game."
Jordan Binnington stopped 27 of 31 shots in defeat. The Blues went 0-for-4 on power play chances.
Game Seven will be Wednesday in Boston.
