The Bruins came out rusty until Sean Kuraly and the fourth line stopped the bleeding. The fourth-line was the best on the ice.
The Bruins were a handful for the first three rounds. But everyone said they’d be water bugs compared to the big, heavy Blues. It sure didn’t look that way. The Blues had almost no O-zone time and their cycle game didn’t exist. #DontPokeTheBear
Brent Burns is an incredible defender, but this series belonged to Colton Parayko. He almost single-handedly neutralized the Sharks’ rush. He owns the neutral zone. Owns it. A guy that big shouldn’t be that agile. And he can score.
The Blues return to the Cup Finals for the first time since 1970. Radio station Y-98 will be playing another 24 hours of Laura Branigan’s Gloria after this series win. And they’re hoping they get to do it again in June. #earworm
Jordan Binnington won’t win the Calder or the Conn Smythe without major miracles. But he’s the central figure in the greatest turnaround in hockey history. The Blues were dead-last on Jan. 2. So much for Lose for (Jack) Hughes.
High glove. That’s the book on Martin Jones. Everyone knows it, even Jones.
