Game 4 of the Stanley Cup Final is scheduled for Monday between the Boston Bruins and the St. Louis Blues at Enterprise Center in St. Louis, with the Bruins leading 2-1 after their 7-2 rout of the Blues on Saturday. It's nice that the power play came together. Four shots. Four goals. But that includes two periods in Game 3 in which the Bruins had a four-goal lead and two periods in Game 2 in which the Bruins had five defensemen.
The Bruins grabbed a stranglehold of the series with the game three win, and it's much the same at Sports Interaction, as they are now -333 favourites to win the Stanley Cup, while the Blues coming in at +250. "No matter what happens, you go on the bench, you regroup and get ready for the next shift", he said. After the contest was 5-2 heading into the final period, Colton Parayko cut it to 5-2 at the 14:36 mark of the third on a power play goal assisted by Ryan O'Reilly and Tyler Bozak.
"I think it's tough to play against", Johansson said earlier last week. "I don't buy into all of that, to be honest with you", he said. "We're not officials. We go out there and we play the game", he said. 6, Boston, Krug 2 (Marchand, Bergeron), 12:12 (pp).
Bruins fans are happy to see their team back on top after Saturday's blowout win over the St. Louis Blues. They've done it throughout the playoffs.

Game 4 is on Monday night in St. Louis. There was a lengthy pregame ceremony featuring video montages of what this playoff run has meant to the city, and several celebrities were in the crowd, including actors Jon Hamm and Jenna Fischer, as well as Kansas City Chiefs players Patrick Mahomes and Travis Kelce.
Binnington allowed five goals on 19 shots before getting the hook for the first time in his National Hockey League career but will nearly certainly be back in net for Game 4. Bergeron deflected Krug's point shot past Binnington at 10:47 of the first period, 26 seconds after David Perron took a minor for interference. Things could have gotten out of hand late, especially as St. Louis exerted its physicality in an attempt to rile up the Bruins.
Coyle wired a wrister by Binnington's glove at 17:40 for a 2-0 lead. There was a question about whether or not Joakim Nordstrom was offside prior to setting up the goal. But in the second period we didn't manage the puck well. The raucous arena was suddenly as quiet as a school library on a Friday afternoon. I think we've let some frustration get in there where we maybe do too much after the whistle. The Blues got one back from fourth-liner Ivan Barbashev. Berube also reacted like it was preposterous to suggest he'd start Jake Allen in goal when Jordan Binnington has been bent and finally broken in the first three games.
Probably possible? Look, the reality for the Blues is they've been outscored 13-7 in the series, and an argument can be made that they've been thoroughly outplayed when all things are equal.
