For the remaining summer, Boston Bruins are going to look back with a heavy heart on the last three minutes of the Game 7.
Bruins had everything lined up for them in this game following a cheering home crowd as they hosted their first game 7 in their 95 years long franchise history. They also had a splendid start against the St.
Louis Blues who looked to be on their heels for the second game in a row.
Unfortunately for Bruins, in mere 3 minutes of the game and due to Bruins’ slow line change following a bad turnover by David Pasternak, Bruins lost their momentum.
Blues were able to shock the Bruins with their two quick goals as they cruised forward for a 4-1 victory on Wednesday night against the Boston Bruins to celebrate their first Stanley Cup win in last 52 years.
42 years old captain of the blues, Zdeno Chara said, “It’s hard to find words for tonight’s win. It was not easy at all. I am sure that everyone had pictured it differently but we believed that it was there for us. This is sports, you have got to take those odds and move on.”
Tuukka Rask, goalie of Bruins said, “It’s 20 minutes. I think we made a comeback and we had confidence in ourselves. That’s what we were saying. We dominated a period but were still 2 to nothing but we still had 40 more minutes to go.”
Rask made mere 16 saves in this game which was the first time that his save percentage was far below 90 percent in the postseason career.
Bruce Cassidy, Boston’s coach said, “it is an empty feeling. It was a long year. Someone had to win it and someone had to lose. Unfortunately, we came up on the wrong side of all of it. It is not the way you picture it.”
