The NHL Playoffs are almost at an end and the St. Louis Blues just tied the Stanley Cup Finals at one game a piece. After a slow first game where the Boston Bruins dominated the Blues, St. Louis came out hot with a fire to even the series. Although Boston’s Charlie Coyle opened up the scoring to take a 1-0 lead, the Blues answered when Robert Bortuzzo scored on a power play to tie the game. The Bruins, again, jumped out to another lead with a goal by fourth-liner Joakim Nordstrom. Once again the Blue were unfazed and Vladimir Tarasenko even things up with a goal of his own before the first period ended. After the first period the second and third period were stale with scoring as it remained 2-2. Although no scoring took place, the game was heavy with hits and physical play. This will likely lead to how the series is won by either team. After regulation the game went to overtime where St. Louis’ Carl Gunnarsson scored 3 minutes and 51 seconds in the sudden death play. This was a fitting scorer because in the third period he rung a slap shot off the post which would’ve won the Blues the game in regulation. He was also the 19th St. Louis Blue to score this postseason. With the series tied at 1, the next game will be in St. Louis on Saturday, June 1 at 8PM.
