It’s a rematch 49 years in the making. The Boston Bruins and St. Louis Blues are set to square off in the 2019 Stanley Cup Final – a matchup we last saw in 1970 when the Bruins swept the Blues; luckily for St. Louis, this time around they won’t face Bobby Orr.
Instead, it’ll be a matchup of the Bruins’ Perfection Line of Patrice Bergeron, Brad Marchand and David Pastrnak against rookie sensation Jordan Binnington in net for the Blues. A Calder Trophy finalist, Binnington led the way for St. Louis from the moment he started his first game back on Jan. 7, and carried the team through the first three rounds. St. Louis defeated Winnipeg Jets (six games), Dallas Stars (seven) and San Jose Sharks (six) on the way to the franchise’s fourth Stanley Cup Final.
Boston, coming off a sweep of the Carolina Hurricanes, handed the Toronto Maple Leafs (seven games) and Columbus Blue Jackets (six games) their walking papers in the first two rounds. The final is nothing new for this team who advanced in 2013 and won the Cup in 2011. Five players – Zdeno Chara, Brad Marchand, Patrice Bergeron, Tuukka Rask and David Krejci – are holdovers from that squad.
Now the table is set for what is expected to be an exciting end to the 2018-19 NHL season. Will we have a first-ever Stanley Cup champion in the St. Louis Blues? Or will the Boston Bruins win the franchise’s seventh Stanley Cup, and second this decade?
