STL -114 Total 5.5
The Bruins played a great game on Saturday night and were able to completely trash the Blues in Saint Louis. However, if the second game is any way to look at the Stanley Cup playoffs so far the Blue should be able to battle back and bring home the win. However, the 7-2 loss to the Bruins was pretty devastating to the Blues and that could prove to be a disaster for the team.
The Bruins were led by Patrice Bergeron in the charge as the team was harshly criticized after the second game loss. That could have been part of what led to the Bruins making such a statement game in the opening game in Saint Louis. However, the Blues are a team that if they can keep the defensive pressure up do have a chance of winning this game.
Tukka Rask did not have to face a lot of shots in the third game of the series. He only faced a total of 29 shots and turned away 27 of those shots. He was able to save 93.1% of the shots sent towards him and even made 7 short handed saves.
The Blues for their part had Jordan Binnington in for part of the game as he faced 19 shots and allowed 5 goals. After 32:12, though, the Blues gave up on Binnington and made the change in net and brought in Jake Allen who faced 4 shots in his 24 minutes of game time and turned away 3 of those shots.
