Blues Resilient Versus Bruins
A Carl Gunnarsson goal in OT helped propel the Blues to a win and to a series tied at 1 apiece. The Blues were resilient in Game 2 as they trailed twice during the game and still found ways to come back.

Head Coach Bruce Cassidy provided the press with his statements regarding how the Bruins let Saint Louis get back into the game. He also mentioned how Saint Louis played better in Game 1.
Specifically, he gave them credit for some schematic changes they made in Game 2 that gave the Bruins some trouble.
Bruins Ready to Win on the Road
The Bruins have plenty of playoff experience and have won on the road multiple times throughout this playoff run. Bruce Cassidy made sure to reiterate that during his post game press conference. The Bruins have plenty of talent and experience on their roster that is more than capable of winning games away from home.
Cassidy also made sure to state that it won’t be easy and he knows Saint Louis will feed off of their home crowd throughout the next two games.
For a fanbase who has never won a Stanley Cup Final, it should be assumed that Blues fans will be in full force Saturday.
Game 3 of the Stanley Cup Finals will take place in Saint Louis at 8 PM. The Blues have struggled at home during their playoff run. They have had to use their ability to win on the road to propel them into the Stanley Cup Final.
With Boston being such a dominant team historically in the playoffs, the Blues will need to use any advantage they can get. Boston will look to their veteran star Brad Marchand to help themselves steal Game 3 away from home.
Marchand is currently leading the team in the postseason with 19 points. Statistically, when Marchand plays well offensively, the Bruins give themselves a much better chance of winning.
