Chumps to champs! St. Louis Blues complete improbable journey to Stanley Cup

The Blues woke up on New Year's morning with the worst record in the league but won 30 of their final 49 regular-season games and soared through the playoffs to reach the final for the first time since 1970.

St. Louis almost added a third midway through the second period but Zdeno Chara managed to swat the puck away from the goal line after a shot from Brayden Schenn went off the crossbar and Rask's shoulder before dropping in the crease.

When he was asked about these things on Wednesday morning ahead of Game 7 at TD Garden, he had a simple motivation headed into tonight's winner-take-all game against the St. Louis Blues on home ice. But despite their efforts, Game 7 belonged to Jordan Binnington.

The 19-year-old returned to action in Game 6 after missing the last four games of the Stanley Cup Final with a wrist injury.

He described himself as "cheeky, confident and pretty flamboyant" when he first introduced himself to viewers in May of this year. The 20-year-old has now returned to his official Instagram account after leaving the ITV2 show.

There's no guarantee this core veteran group of Boston Bruins ever will return to the Stanley Cup Final. With just two minutes remaining, Matt Grzelcyk managed to score Boston's lone goal.

O'Reilly was awarded the Conn Smythe Trophy as playoff MVP. Three of them have come at St. Louis' expense.

After a the teams traded chances but no goals in the second period, Brayden Schenn put the game away with just under 8:20 left in the third period with an assist from Vladimir Tarasenko. Interim Head Coach Craig Berube now joins six others who won a Stanley Cup with an interim tag.
