The Boston Bruins and the St. Louis Blues will compete for the honours in the seventh game of the Stanley Cup Final on Wednesday. A final game to lift the precious trophy had not occurred since 2011… when the Bruins won over the Canucks in Vancouver.
In what is the 17th Game 7 in the history of the Stanley Cup finals, the experienced Bruins will have to weather the dangerous St-Louis Blues, one of the best away teams in the NHL this season. The way the Missouri team handled adversity throughout this season is something that cannot be ignored, and their discipline will surely be one of the main bullet points in pregame prep. The Bruins, with their significant offensive firepower, will look to put the game to bed early in what is an opportunity at a 7th Stanley Cup for the Original 6 franchise.
Watch Game 7 at 8 PM eastern on NBC for US readers or on Sportsnet for Canadian broadcast.
