From dead last to the championship series, the St. Louis Blues have returned to the Stanley Cup Final after a 49-year absence with a 5-1 victory over the San Jose Sharks in Game 6 of the Western Conference Final.

The Stanley Cup Final doesn't start until next Monday, giving St. Louis Blues and Boston Bruins fans plenty of time to gear up - and for bandwagon fans to decide which franchise to support.

Hertl took a hit to the head in the first period of the Sharks' 5-0 loss in Game 5 from Blues forward Ivan Barbashev and was nowhere to be seen in the third period of the defeat.

Binnington, who picked up his franchise-record 12th playoff win following the Blues' 5-1 victory, became the fifth rookie goaltender in National Hockey League history, and first in 32 years, to earn his team's first 12 wins in a single postseason. He has a 12-7 record with a 2.37 goals-against average and.914 save percentage in 19 games this postseason. Pavelski missed the first six games of San Jose's second-round series with the Colorado Avalanche, but still has nine points in 13 playoff games. The Bruins will have 10 days off between games though, which could prove problematic.

The Blues are riding a 3-game winning streak entering the series, while Boston has won seven in a row and is undefeated in May.
