Louis Blues vs. Boston Bruins - 6/3/19 NHL - Playoffs Pick, Odds, and Prediction

Louis Blues vs. Boston Bruins - 6/3/19 NHL - Playoffs Pick, Odds, and Prediction

The Bruins leading 2-1 after their 7-2 rout of the Blues on Saturday. Boston's power play should come back down to earth at some point, but some point may be next November, so better safe than sorry.

This was the first time Binnington has been benched by the Blues in the playoffs. "So, we'll clean that up, for sure". The Blues need to work on their penalty kill, which has struggled in the playoffs and it allowed the Bruins four power play goals in game three. two of those came in the opening frame.

Well, considering they scored four goals on four shots in Game 3, we'd say pretty good. Defenseman Torey Krug scored a goal and had three assists, top-line center Patrice Bergeron had a goal and two assists, Pastrnak and Brad Marchand got on the scoresheet and the top power-play unit was a flawless 4 for 4 - on four shots. The St. Louis Blues have split their last 10 home games, but they've lost back-to-back home games just three times since January 10.

"I don't think we did everything great".

"I guess the story is that the coach of the team I was trying out for hit me in the head with a puck and I didn't even flinch, and then he just calmly skated over to my dad on the glass and he was like 'he's on the team, '" Binnington said. The Bruins were off a tough 3-2 loss in game two, which allowed the Blues to steal home-ice advantage, but they shook it off and flexed their muscles with a 7-2 pounding of the Blues in game three.

And now, just days ahead of its formal launch, the complete specifications and price of the smartphone have been leaked online. However, the complete details of its pricing and availability will be shared by the company during the launch event itself.

The Blues have come back from adversity before, starting with climbing out of the league cellar on January 3 and overcoming a loss in Game 3 in the Western Conference final to San Jose on an uncalled illegal hand pass that led directly to an overtime goal.

"Well, there's a few things", Blues coach Craig Berube said. St. Louis couldn't kill off a single Bruins power play, which paved the way for the first blowout of the series. "We were happy with it, don't get me wrong, but it was far from ideal and our guys recognize that". Timo Meier's hand pass in overtime during the Western Conference Final was an egregious miss, and the Blues were short a man in Game 3 due to a one-game suspension to key penalty killer Oscar Sundqvist. Boston is 4-1 in the next game after a loss in these playoffs, and 6-2 on the road overall.

Nothing was more important to get the Bruins through this than Marchand, Bergeron and Pastrnak getting on track.

"They're playing hard, we're playing hard", Blues defenseman Colton Parayko said. "When we do that we have more energy on offense". "We've talked about staying focused and staying in the moment". The Bruins are the ideal example of that: They won five of six power-play faceoffs in Game 3 and scored goals 21, 51, 31 and 23 seconds into each chance. The Bruins were the 2nd best team in the league all year and the feeling here is that they will be the best team in the league once the postseason is over. The Blues were without suspended forward Oskar Sundqvist. "We have to get back to our game".
