Most of that was because of a 5-on-3 power play goal that Marchand scored.
Robert Thomas is ready to return to the St. Louis Blues' lineup for a potential Stanley Cup-clinching Game 6 against the Boston Bruins. Bergeron, Marchand, Chara, Rask and David Krejci were each part of the last Game 7 played in a Stanley Cup Final - and celebratory pictures from their 2011 victory in Vancouver once again were brought to St. Louis and hung up in the dressing room. They've had another trying series in the Stanley Cup Final.
Along with Stillman's letter, an ad from Enterprise, the sponsor of the team's arena, was published that congratulated the Blues for winning the Stanley Cup.
Boston sealed the win two minutes later on Pastrnak's goal while captain Chara, playing his second game with a full face shield after breaking his jaw last Monday, added an empty-netter shortly after.
"It's hard to really pick one at this point", Bruins centre Patrice Bergeron said of yet another game in which Rask was at his best. Now you can get them at -357 to win the Stanley Cup. Following a 4-for-4 performance on four shots in a 7-2 rout during Game 3, the Bruins couldn't figure out the Blues' penalty kills in Games 4 and 5.
"He's our best player", Bruins defenceman Charlie McAvoy said.
On behalf of the employees' jobs, let's go Blues.
"We have to move on, get ready for the next one", O'Reilly said. However, in the first five games the over is 3-2.
St. Louis created a spate of good chances during its first three power plays, but Rask stood tall.
First, Jake DeBrusk won a board battle with Pietrangelo to set up Carlo's bouncing shot that went off Binnington's arm for the defenceman's second career playoff goal.
Binnington saved 27 of 31 shots for St. Louis.
"It got us going in the right direction", said Boston coach Bruce Cassidy. Yes, they have run into a hot goaltender, but the team must generate a lot more scoring opportunities. As St. Louis got hot and played well the rest of the season making the playoffs, Glenn couldn't "see this coming", he told ESPN during the Western Conference Final against San Jose.
