The Boston Bruins had gone 11 days without playing a hockey game after sweeping the Carolina Hurricanes in the Eastern Conference Finals. They looked rusty in the beginning of the opener of the Stanley Cup Finals on Monday night, as the St. Louis Blues opened up a 2-0 lead in the first minute of the second period. Brayden Schenn had opened the scoring in the first as the Boston defense just would not chase down a rebound, and then David Pastrnak turned the puck over behind his own net, and the Blues opened the second with another goal. After that, though, Boston woke up, outshooting St. Louis 18-3 in the second period and finishing with a 38-20 advantage with shots on goal. Jordan Binnington made 34 saves for St. Louis, but now the Blues have lost all five of the Stanley Cup Finals games they have played — and all to Boston. Can St. Louis get the road split in Game 2? Or will Boston ride the momentum of a comeback win — they ended up doubling up the Blues, 4-2 — and go to St. Louis up 2-0? We have your NHL betting preview right here.
