Latest Odds : BOS -169 Total 5.5
The Blues have to go back to Boston to clinch the title if they want to win the Stanley Cup. However, the game is going to be a battle between the two teams that have shown up as evenly matched for most of the series and actually have forced a game 7. The one thing that could really help the Bruins out is the fact that the Bruins are unbeaten in the playoff series this year when they have faced elimination on the year.
The Blues for their part have actually looked really strong when playing in Boston this year. However, the Bruins definitely are going to have a fired up home crowd and one that will definitely be screaming out loud for any minor penalty to be called, even if the refs have decided that the players could play the game and not worry about the penalty calls.
In the last game the Bruins were able to put in a total of 5 goals in the game. Jordan Binnington did his best in the net as he faced 31 shots and allowed only 4 of them to get by him. However, the 5th goal the Bruins were able to get into the back of the net was an empty netter that the Blues had no goalie in the net to stop.
Tukka Rask was the goalie in the net for the Bruins and he was spot on for the entire game. Rask was able to turn away 28 shots that were sent towards him and that was quite amazing as he only allowed a single goal in the game.
