Blues Win First Stanley Cup

Jonathan Grant | June 13th, 2019

Going into Wednesday night’s Game 7 on the road in Boston against the Bruins, the St. Louis Blues wouldn’t have been feeling discouraged or like they were out of it. The ‘road warriors,’ after all had an under .500 record at home so far but had been brilliant on ‘road ice,’ and that trend was set to continue as they claimed the Stanley Cup with a 4-1 win to improve to 10-3 away from home in the playoffs.

St. Louis Post-Dispatch

The Blues once again leaned upon influential goaltender Jordan Binnington throughout Game 7, with the rookie making save after save on the way to a win that was anything but comfortable- despite the final score. At 25 years old, he is one of the oldest rookies you will ever see. With his 32 saves in the game, he became the rookie with the most saves in a game since 1955- when the stat was tracked for the first time. Ryan O’Reilly, so vital for them during their run, got them off to the perfect start with a goal in the first period. Alex Pietrangelo, who assisted on that goal, would score soon after as well to give them a 2-0 lead in the opening period, before third period goals from Brayden Schenn and Zach Sanford just about wrapped it up. A late Matt Grzelcyk goal was too little too late, and the Blues would be raising the Cup in Boston for their first ever trip around the sun with the trophy.
