Jun. 8, 2019 5:56 PM EDT

ST. LOUIS (AP) — Patrick Maroon doesn't want to go there. Not even about how the St. Louis Blues handle the roller coaster of inconsistent officiating.

Special team: Blues penalty kill has them on verge of Cup

Jun. 7, 2019 8:09 PM EDT

Something is missing from Boston's power play. The uninterrupted puck movement and cross-ice passes to a wide-open David Pastrnak aren't there anymore. Torey Krug isn't getting the chance to fire away from the top. Patrice Bergeron isn't dominating between the faceoff circles like before. Boston rode its power...

Jun. 2, 2019 5:56 PM EDT

ST. LOUIS (AP) — Patrice Bergeron wins the faceoff and Jake DeBrusk retrieves the puck for Torey Krug, who waits just long enough for Bergeron to set up and shoots it at his stick for a textbook deflection goal. This is the Boston Bruins' masterful power play at its nearly unstoppable best. When the Bruins...

Jun. 2, 2019 12:28 AM EDT

ST. LOUIS (AP) — St. Louis was ready to celebrate its first Stanley Cup Final game on home ice in 49 years. The Blues didn't cooperate.

Jun. 2, 2019 12:07 AM EDT

ST. LOUIS (AP) — David Pastrnak flashed a wry smile, brimming with confidence.

Pastrnak shrugged it off, saying on scale of 1 to 10 they felt the...
