STANLEY CUP FINAL GAME 3 – BRUINS-BLUES – SATURDAY NIGHT AT 8 P.M. ET ON NBCSN
The St. Louis Blues evened the series at one game apiece with a 3-2 overtime victory in Game 2 against the Boston Bruins at TD Garden last night. Carl Gunnarsson scored 3:51 into overtime to get his team their first win in a Stanley Cup Final. Gunnarsson’s game-winner was his first goal in 57 career Stanley Cup Playoff games. St. Louis got game-tying goals from Robert Bortuzzo and Vladimir Tarasenko in the first period, following Bruins tallies by Charlie Coyle and Joakim Nordstrom. Blues goaltender Jordan Binnington made 21 saves in the overtime win. St. Louis’ Game 2 win guarantees a Game 5 in Boston on Thursday, June 6, at 8 p.m. ET on NBC.
Milbury on the Blues in Game 2: “The better team won this hockey game. They came out with a purpose. They were physical. They were relentless. It finally paid off. They just wanted it more than the Bruins.”
Jones on the Blues in Game 2: “They put a clinic on how to win a road game. They paid a price. They took hits to make plays. They made contact in every possible situation and made sure they hit somebody.”
Olczyk on Gunnarsson goal: “There was a delayed call coming up against the Bruins so (the Blues) had the extra attacker. The screen by Alex Pietrangelo…no chance for Rask to see that shot.”
