Blues Defeat Boston Bruins In Game 7:
The Blues stunned the Bruins with 2-0 lead into the first intermission and cruised to a 4-1 win Wednesday night to celebrate their first championship.
Ryan O’Reilly scored for the fourth straight game and rookie Jordan Binnington stopped 32 shots in Game 7 at TD Garden in Boston.
“It’s hard to find words,” 42-year-old captain Zdeno Chara said, fighting back tears and still healing from a badly injured jaw. “It’s not easy. I’m sure everyone pictured it differently and we believed that it was there for us. That’s sports. You’ve got to kind of take those and move on.”
“Whatever we say, it doesn’t matter,” Patrice Bergeron said inside a somber Bruins’ dressing room. “I’m proud of the guys, and proud of everyone. But we didn’t get the result and it’s hard to be standing up here answering questions.”
“It’s 20 minutes. I think we’ve come back and we had confidence in ourselves,” Boston goaltender Tuukka Rask said of that first intermission. “That’s what we were saying. Obviously, it’s shocking when you dominate a period and you’re still down 2-nothing, but we still had 40 minutes to go.”
Bergeron is the Bruins’ most valuable forward and a key contributor at even strength, on the power play and on the penalty kill.
