Bruins Overpower Blues in Game 3
The Bruins took back home ice advantage with a resounding thrashing of the Blues by the score of 7-2 on Saturday night.
All seven goals scored were by a different Bruin. Patrice Bergeron kicked off the onslaught with his ninth of the playoffs on the power play. The power play proved to be the downfall for the Blues as the Bruins went 4 for 4 with the man advantage.
The Blues struggled to end the first period within striking distance as they gave up two goals in the two minutes of 20 seconds of the period. The third goal came from Sean Kuraly with 9.2 seconds remaining.
The Blues challenged the third goal, and the failed challenged resulted in a power play to begin the second period in which David Pastranek scored his eighth of the playoffs all but ending all hope for a comeback.
The Blues rookie goaltender Jordan Binnington was pulled for the first time in his NHL career after the fifth goal.
The Blues must find a way to slow down the Bruins power play going forward in the series and playing their game while also being discipline will be the key.
Game 4 of the Stanley Cup Final will take place on Monday night in St. Louis.
