O’Reilly storms back to form in Stanley Cup Final
O’Reilly ended an eight-game drought by finally scoring and scoring twice in the game. He struck early with just 43 seconds into the game. Later he helped snatch the lead by scoring in the third round.
It could also be called a game of goalies with Boston’s Tuukka Rask matching Blues’ Jordan Binnington in saving astonishing shots.
Vladimir Tarasenki also scored a goal on the night for the Blues. But Binnington was as impressive as any. He came strongly after being pulled the first time in his career last game to make 21 saves.
On the other hand, Rask was no less impressive conceding just 3 of 37 shots but Bruins couldn’t build as many scoring opportunities.
Zdeno Chara leaves bloodied
Boston Captain had to pull out after a puck to his mouth left him bloodied. Boston was further dampened after that. Charlie Coyle maintained his good run of form scoring for 3rd consecutive time and Carlo also added one. But after Zdeno’s injury, they went to 5 defensemen again and it was all worn out.
