After clanging the potential victor off the post in the final two-minutes of regulation, Gunnarsson scored on a delayed penalty 3:51 into overtime to give St. Louis a 3-2 victory over the Boston Bruins and tie the Stanley Cup Final at a game apiece.
The Blues bounced back from a thoroughly disappointing Game 1 loss to win Game 2 in an overtime thriller, earning a split in Boston before the series heads to St. Louis.
Robert Bortuzzo and Vladimir Tarasenko also scored to help St Louis win a Cup finals game for the first time in 14 tries in franchise history. Belichick, considered one of the greatest National Football League coaches of all time, joins a long list of Patriots that have shown love for their Boston brethren on ice. "It's great, taking this home". The total will remain at 5.5 for this game two.
Djokovic, Nadal cruise into French Open second round
Both the players were able to land a significant number of first serves in, but Djokovic made a difference with the second serve. On the women's side, can Simona Halep defend her title? "I had to start sharp with the right intensity", he said.
After a furious first period that ended in a 2-all tie, the teams went on defense in the second. "We're going to have to get to the front of the net, get in the slot, create opportunities in those areas".
Forty-nine years after Bobby Orr flew through the air to beat the Blues for the 1970 National Hockey League title, the Bruins got goals from defensemen Connor Clifton and Charlie McAvoy. It came during a delayed penalty, as the Blues absolutely ran roughshod over the Bruins during OT, forcing multiple turnovers in Boston's zone, and generating all four of that brief OT period's shots on goal. And in the middle of the second, on the Bruins' fourth power play of the game, McAvoy came right up the middle and wristed it past Binnington's glove to tie it. They are 7-3 in 10 road games, and haven't lost back to back road games this post season. The Bruins badly outshot the Blues 38-20 in the game, including 30 to 12 in the final two periods of play. He left the arena for a hospital; Bruins coach Bruce Cassidy said he had no other update.
The favorite is 5-0 in the last five meetings. The Blues couldn't convert, and in fact took a penalty during the flow of that chance.
