The St Louis Blues Needed Overtime to Even the Stanley Cup Finals as they Beat the Boston Bruins 3-2 In Overtime. This Was a Game that The Blues Needed as they Go Home to St Louis For Games Three and Four.
The Blues Now Have a Chance to Do Some Damage On their Home Ice against the Big Bad Bruins.
For the St Louis Blues, The Blues Had Some Stars.
Robert Bortuzzo, He Had a Goal In the Game and It was a HUGE GOAL at That.
Vladimir Tarasenko, He Was Huge In the First Period With a Goal Of His Own.
Carl Gunnarsson, Mr. Hero In Overtime He Had 1 Goal, 1 assist and the Goal Was the game Winner In Overtime.
As For Goalie Jordan Binnington, He Had 21 Big Saves In the Game As the Blues Even Up The Series.
Vladimir Tarasenko Talked To Reporters After the Game and Said the Following.
” This Was a Win We Had to Have, Now We Have a Shot At Winning the Cup As we Get Ready to Go Home To Our House and the Fans Will Be Rocking And Jumping. And Gunner Was The Hero So Thank You Carl.”
Jordan Binnington Said this To Reporters After the Game.
” I made up For My Game One Performance With a Good Night, I know I gave Up Two Early Goals In the Game, Then I kept them Off the Scoreboard the Rest of the Way and My Teammates Were a HUGE HELP Tonight And Thank You Gunner.”
As Far As the Boston Bruins Go It was Not Good At All.
Charlie Coyle, He Only Had 1 Goal In the Game And That Was It For Him.
Joakim Nordstorm, He Only Had One Goal Himself In Game 2.
As Far as Goalie Tukka Rask Goes, He had 37 Saves In the Game But Gave Up The Game Winner In Overtime.
Tukka Rask Talked To Reporters After the Game and Said the Following.
” It Was a Disappointing Night For Me as I Let My Teammates Down and They Could Have Done More to Help Tonight. This Is the Stanley Cup Finals and I don’t think Some Of THE Guys Who We Have Playing Now Don’t Have the Experience I this Type Of Environment. We Have To Take the Next Two Games To Have any Chance And we Have to Play Better and that Does Include Me.”
Now Here’s My Take…
The Blues and Bruins Traded Early Goals In Game Two On Wednesday And then Carl Gunnarsson Was the Hero With the Game Winner In Overtime. The Burins 8 Game Winning Streak Ended Tonight and The Blues Outplayed The Bruins all Night In My Opinion. And I have Some More Numbers for you to think About. The Three Goals In Game Two On Wednesday Were the Most Goals The Bruins Gave Up Since May 4th. And the Blues Knew they Would Have to Play the Bruins Style Of Hockey and Here Are Some More Number For you.
Shots In the Game…
St Louis 37.
Hits In the Game…
St Louis 50.
That Pretty Much Summed Up Game Two In Boston. So What’s Next you Ask, Games Three and Four at the Enterprise Center In St Louis and that Place Is going to Be Jumping In game Three On Saturday Night.
This Stanley Cup Finals Is at Least going to go Six Games But That’s Subject To Change So Stay Tuned On that.
