Boston had started well the final series and soundly won Game 1 played in front of their fans. However, they weren’t up to the task in the following game and they lost after overtime. The Blues had once again showed that they play very good outside their arena as they made a break. First two games were very similar and we expected something similar in Game 3. However, Boston played phenomenally this time and in the end won by unexpectedly high 2-7.
With the victory they regain the home-field advantage and will play the seventh, decisive game at home, if it comes to that. However, it is questionable is it an advantage since St. Louis Blues play better away than at home. Their last head-to-head was again very uncertain. The Bruins equalised the result twice but eventually they lost 4-2. Now, they have a make-up exam in front of their fans, where they played very good this season.
St. Louis Blues
The Blues were in a strange situation before the last game. They were trailing behind in the series and another home defeat would probably meant end of hops to win the Stanley Cup. Sound defeat of 2-7 in the previous game thoroughly disappointed their fans and they were under great pressure in Game 3. After the elimination of Washington and the Lightning, Boston became the main favourite to win the title and the Blues had a very difficult job.
Unlike the previous game the Blues did much better in Game 3. They had a lead two times but each time the guests managed to equalise the result. The home team broke the guests’ resistance in the finish of game. Firstly, O'Reilly scored the third goal in the tenth minute of the third period, and then Schenn confirmed the victory near the end of game. The Blues will play the next game outside their arena, which didn’t prevent them to play very good in the previous period.
Boston Bruins vs St. Louis Blues PICK
Given the Bruins will play at home it is widely expected to win. However, that won’t be an easy task given fact that the Blues play excellently when on tour, which they demonstrated in Game 2. This is going to be another uncertain game in which we give a slight advantage to the home team as they have imperative to win.
