RECAP: Bruins lose on home ice in Game 7; St. Louis Blues win franchise’s first Stanley Cup

First Period The early advantage went to the Blues. A good 30 seconds of zone time followed by a great clear put Boston on their heels early. The Blues were absolutely looking for any and every edge under which to pry, and the refs let it all go. Boston, however, was very much the more creative team to start the game. Only a few minutes in, smart passes - most crisply from Matt Grzelcyk, returning from concussion - and some solid offensive zone possession from Noel Acciari, Joakim Nordstrom and Sean Kuraly (with a bit of Brad Marchand sprinkled in) hemmed he Blues back for a good chunk of...

If he's cleared, do you play Matt Grzelcyk in Game 7?

If he's cleared, do you play Matt Grzelcyk in Game 7?

It might seem like a no-brainer, but there could be some drawbacks. It remains to be seen whether or not defenseman Matt Grzelcyk will be medically cleared to play tomorrow night, but there's a larger question: do you even play him if he gets cleared? On the surface, it seems like a slam dunk: yes, you play him. Grzelcyk is a good, mobile defenseman whose skating can help the Bruins with the Blues' aggressive forecheck. He can chip in with a little offense from the blue line as well, which is never a bad thing in a winner-take-all Game 7. Still, the Bruins should exercise caution, both for...

Boston Bruins Injury Crisis a Factor in Game 6

The Boston Bruins injury problems grow more and more prominent by the day. Since the Bruins commanding victory over the St. Louis Blues in Game 3 of the Stanley Cup Final, the team has dropped two straight and now sit just one game away from elimination. Bruins captain and primary penalty killer Zdeno Chara is reportedly playing with a broken jaw. Faceoff genius and Selke award nominee Patrice Bergeron has shrugged off rumours of an injury since the Bruins completed their sweep of the Carolina Hurricanes. Matt Grzelcyk, a key piece of the Bruins blue line group, hasn't played since suffering...
Game 6 lines: Cool, man

Game 6 lines: Cool, man

A little shuffling in tonight’s do-or-die game. Folks, we are going to see some CHANGES tonight. Per Bruce Cassidy and the team, Karson Kuhlman will make his Stanley Cup Final debut tonight, likely playing on David Krejci’s wing (at least some of the time). The team will also be going back to 6 defensemen, with Steven Kampfer the odd-man out. This means that Bruce Cassidy must be fairly confident in the health of Zdeno Chara, which is a good sign. Matt Grzelcyk will not play tonight, as he’s still recovering from his concussion. Putting Kuhlman in isn’t the worst idea, but it has to...
