The 2019 Stanley Cup playoffs turned out to be hockey’s version of a hot dog factory: You don’t want to see how it’s made, but the final product is pretty good.
A two-month odyssey that began with a sweep of the historic Lightning, one of three of the NHL’s top five seeds upset in the first round, enters its final stage with the start of the Stanley Cup Final: A series pitting the Bruins, an Orginal Six franchise seeking its seventh title, against the hard-luck Blues, who last played for a championship in 1970.
St. Louis’ journey defies most logic considering it occupied last place in the entire NHL as recently as Jan. 3. The stunning turnaround, driven by a talented roster and the play of rookie goaltender Jordan Bennington, will become a thing of sports legend should the Blue hoist the Stanley Cup for the first time in the franchise’s 50-plus year history.
Boston, meanwhile, seeks a second Cup this decade as the city continues to corner the market on sports championships.
To keep tabs on this year’s Stanely Cup Final, here’s a full series TV schedule along with live scores and results from every game.
