Stanley Cup Playoffs Daily: The Bruins ruin the return home with a 7-2 defeat
The St. Louis Blues had waited 49 years to host another final game of the Stanley Cup. They will have a little more time to have a happier memory at home after the Boston Bruins attacked the Blues 7-2 in Game 3 on Saturday night to take the lead in the series 2-1.

About last night ...

It was supposed to be a special night in San Luis, and the crowd was full of celebrities like Jenna Fischer, Jon Hamm, Travis Kelce, Jackie Joyner Kersee, and Patrick Mahomes. However, this game was all about the Bruins' dominance, although we probably remember it as the first time that Jordan Binnington was removed from his career in the NHL (fortunately, after Boston's fifth goal).

Boston reached a 3-0 lead at the end of the first period (the last goal, with 9.2 seconds remaining in the period) was a dagger, and did not look back. The Bruins power game was absurdly efficient, and it was 4-for-4 ... in four shots. In the end, seven different Bruins score. Things had gotten out of control, especially when San Luis exercised his physique in an attempt to engage the Bruins. The Bruins did not bit and protect Tuukka Rask.

Meanwhile, in the St. Louis room, the players firmly defended their rookie goalkeeper. They admitted to going dry and committed themselves to be better. The Blues owe it to their local fans to come out strong in Game 4

Three stars

1. Torey Krug, D, Boston Bruins

With one goal and three assists, Krug set a new final record for the Bruins Stanley Cup on points. He was the main beneficiary of a power game that was terribly efficient.

2. Patrice Bergeron, C, Boston Bruins

There has been some speculation after scoring the first goal of the game, for now (he also added two assists). "Look at the game tonight. Do you look hurt?" Linemate Brad Marchand joked

3. David Pastrnak, LW, Boston Bruins

Another goal According to Natural Stat Trick, Pastrnak's trio, Bergeron and Marchand scored three times on eight goal opportunities in Game 3

Game of the night

I'm not sure which one is the nicest, Charlie Coyle's goal or Marcus Johansson's pass. It feels as if Johansson, a free agent with no impending restrictions, is pushing the price of his contract per round in these playoffs.

Dud of the night

The Blues challenged the Bruins' third goal, which went with 9.2 seconds left in the first period. Failure was not necessarily the decision to challenge; It was an intellectual challenge, and we are still not completely convinced. But when the referees ruined in favor of Boston, it became a death kiss for San Luis.

Boston scored in the next power play at the beginning of the second period to build a 4-0 lead. And while wild things have happened in the playoffs, note that in the 2018-19 season, the teams went 1-252-1 after four goals.

Social publication of the day.

We're not sure when it will become a requirement for NFL quarterbacks who attend sporting events to brew beers, but we do not complain. Mahomes took advantage of his opportunity:


"We could use a victory, it's a tough race for the city, the last three decades or so with the weird cardinals championship here and there and what does not, it will be good for a million different reasons, but mainly I think for boys In this team, when you look back, whatever it is, on January 2, the last in the league, the guys believe, and I think the city is also starting to do it.
