So this could be a tough spot for Boston, in theory, going to St. Louis for the Blues' first Cup Final home game since 1970. After being the least-penalized team through the first three rounds, the Blues took six more minors Saturday to give them 16 in the final.

Staying disciplined was coach Craig Berube's focus given the charged atmosphere that delivered on all the hype. They hope that feeling continues even long after the Stanley Cup Final is over.

Torey Krug added his name to the ledger with a power play goal with 7:48 left in the second that made it 5-1 and ended Jordan Binnington's night in favor of Jake Allen. "When we do that we have more energy on offense". I think we've let some frustration get in there where we maybe do too much after the whistle, so we'll clean that up for sure. "The Bruins did a good job and we can't give them life that way". Berube believed it was a 50/50 call and took a chance that cost his team when Pastrnak scored on the ensuing power play. "The penalties, they get four power-play goals out of it, just 5-on-5, I didn't think we were bad in the game".

Instead the edited film simply says he founded an AIDS foundation and continues to work with his musical partner, Bernie Taupin. The closing credits had also been amended to drop references to John's relationship with husband David Furnish.

"I've got to be better", Binnington said. They scored three goals in the first. Obviously, they've got a good power-play team. Bergeron and defenseman Torey Krug each scored a goal and had two assists, David Pastrnak scored his first goal of the series and the top power-play unit was a flawless 4 for 4. St. Louis couldn't kill off a single Bruins power play, which paved the way for the first blowout of the series.

Getting back center Oskar Sundqvist, who was suspended for Game 3, will help. Zac Sanford saw his first playoff action since April 14 in replacing Sundqvist.

A boisterous crowd that included actors and St Louis natives Jon Hamm and Jenna Fischer and a number of National Football League players were on hand to cheer on the Blues, enjoying some limelight in a city more familiar with celebrating baseball's storied Cardinals or, not all that long ago, the now-departed Rams from the NFL.
