The St. Louis Blues beat the Boston Bruins in Game 7 for franchise’s first NHL Crown!
With a win over the Bruins Wednesday night, St. Louis captured its first Stanley Cup title in franchise history.
Paced by two first-period goals, the Blues defeated the Bruins 4-1 at TD Garden in Boston, MA bringing their final record in road games throughout these playoffs to a historic 10-3 record.
According to KTVI & KMOV-TV, true to form for this year’s club, the Stanley Cup clincher came on the road, where the Blues have excelled this postseason by winning 10 games, tied for most in NHL history.
The Blues became the first team since the 1935 Montreal Maroons to win the Stanley Cup with a losing record at home (6-7 playoff record at Enterprise Center this season).
Jordan Binnington, the best individual story in St. Louis sports history this side of Kurt Warner, showed up on the biggest stage Wednesday, putting on the display of a lifetime. His exceptional play began from the drop of the puck, as Binnington made several breathtaking saves in the first, keeping Boston off the board in spite of a Bruins power play. He also joins only four goalies who claimed the Cup in their rookie seasons and is now the first rookie in NHL history to earn all 16 of a team’s postseason wins. Interim Head Coach Craig Berube now joins six others who won a Stanley Cup with an interim tag.
It’s all real, it actually happened; from worst to first, the St. Louis Blues just won the Cup!
