Blues must balance emotion, discipline at home in Cup Final

After Robby Fabbri stepped in for Thomas in the Blues' Game 2 overtime victory and defenseman who had sat out are contributing, Berube isn't anxious about his team's depth in this situation.

Blues-Bruins Game 3 is Saturday night at 8 p.m. ET from Enterprise Center on NBCSN and the NBC Sports app.

Upon reaching his stall in the locker room Friday morning, the 24-year-old MA native was greeted by a horde of reporters, eager to chat with him ahead of his Stanley Cup Final debut.

They ain't seen nothin' yet.

One of the hottest teams in the National Hockey League over the past two rounds of the playoffs, Boston was beaten up during their 3-2 overtime loss to the Blues in Game 2 of the Stanley Cup Final on Wednesday night. That was May 5, 1970, a 6-2 loss to the Bruins in Game 2 of the series that Bobby Orr ended in four games with an overtime goal.

While it isn't a must-win situation for either team in Game, having a 2-1 series lead is always beneficial and both teams will be vying for that advantage. "We're going to keep battling".

"We never give up", said Gunnarsson after recording his first career playoff goal in 56 outings. "We just have to go into their building and try to get one". It's not a penalty you're trying to take.

Good luck for the future. "But I don't know if it's possible". "I am so happy that I have the chance to play another final". Salah did also speak about the Champions League final: "We lost it one year ago and we want to take our revenge now".

"I really didn't know what happened to me at first", Dunn said Friday. "They put pucks in good spots for each other and you have to be aware where they are on the ice at all times". Their home arena was full for viewing parties for Games 1 and 2, so it's tough for players not to get caught up in the excitement after watching videos of those scenes. We don't come in here and say we want to win so the fans don't cheer.

Boston has also won its last four playoff games on the road since a 2-1 defeat in Game 3 of its Eastern Conference semifinal at Columbus.

"They've done a good job against them", Cassidy admitted. "If that's a two-minute penalty, I think there's going to be a shortage of defensemen in this series by the end of it. But from what I've seen I've been very impressed, and we're excited to get home to show what this town's about". They were whistled for high-sticking, hooking, cross-checking, interference and slashing and twice for tripping and goaltender.

Losing Sundqvist is another blow for St. Louis, which had already been without injured forward Robert Thomas and defenseman Vince Dunn.

In the larger scope, the Bruins' "Perfection Line" with Patrice Bergeron, David Pastrnak and Marchand has been, well, more like the "Imperfection Line". And that works in reverse, too. We're not overly concerned about the fans, we're more concerned about the game.

Backes had zero shots on net, zero points and not much influence in the overtime Game 2 loss and now in familiar environs, it'd be the ideal time for the veteran power forward to have a Cup Final performance he'll always remember.

Grzelcyk did not return and Boston failed to covert on the subsequent two minute power play. "Anyone's able to come in", said Blues defenseman Colton Parayko. "As a player, you just go out and you may be skipped over five shifts because of the disruption or whatnot, but it's easy to get emotionally invested and right back into it when that is the case".
