Stanley Cup Game 7 Preview
The narrative throughout this series has twisted with every single game. We had believed that the Blues were finally going to have their moment in the sun on Sunday evening; the Stanley Cup was even in the arena.
However, in no uncertain terms; they blew their big chance. Of course, the Bruins were brilliant, and their top line was as productive as it has been throughout this seven-game series so far. But, it was a 5-1 defeat on their home ice. It was a shocker.
From a Bruins point of view, the contrasting fortunes between games five and six couldn’t have been more striking. In game five, nothing was working for them, and the front line looked lethargic. However, their response to the criticism was captivating.
The goal from David Pastrnak during the third period was the first time that any of the front line had scored during 5-vs-5 play throughout the series. The hope of Bruins was hinging of them getting back to their best, and if game six was anything to go by, then it is definitely heading in the right direction.
However, once again, their star man was the man between the posts.
Not for the first team in this post-season, the main reason that Boston were able to pounce on their chances was because Tuuka Rask had kept them in with a chance. If it hadn’t been for the Finnish stopper then undoubtedly Boston wouldn’t be competing at this stage.
The first two periods, there was a sense from the crowd that they were never going to beat Rask. The Blues piled the pressure on and threw everything they had at the Bruins goal. It was a superhuman effort from Rask to keep them at bay.
The second period especially, it was all about surviving the onslaught that was coming their way from a buoyant Blues. Fortunately for the Bruins, they weathered the storm, and from that point, it seemed that St. Louis had accepted their fate of waiting for one more game before getting another chance to win their first ever Stanley Cup.
Karson Kuhlman would have been pleased with his first outing in the Stanley Cup, as he scored his first ever post-season goal, and it was a beauty.
The other Bruins goals came from Brad Marchand, Pastrnak, Brandon Carlo and Zdeno Chara. Meanwhile, there were no points for guessing who got the Blues consolation; Ryan O’Reilly. The Blues will have so much to than their star for if they get their hands on the Stanley Cup. He has scored four in his last three and contributed to seven points in the series so far.
It will be a tense night in Boston on Wednesday, and it could go either way.
Stanley Cup Game 7 Predictions
It’s almost impossible to call which way this is going to go. You would feel that the momentum is with the Bruins after a big win, but the fact that the Blues have won the last two in Boston means that it isn’t that simple.
In Rask and O’Reilly; there are two players that have deserved to win the Stanley Cup for their performances throughout the seven games so far.
Unfortunately only one of them can do it. We can hope for one more piece of history from the Blues.
