Bookie Blues -- Sportsbooks face Stanley Cup sweat

25 May 2019

Lookout In the Stanley Cup Finals Against Boston. All of that good mojo was apparent to the Bruins players as they talked it about after scrimmaging for 50 minutes in front of a packed house. The Bruins are a great team, but the Blues are more fun and have some really unique storylines surrounding the team. The Sharks, by contrast, only had six forwards record at least two points. "We are missing Karlsson, Hertl and Pavelski is game time decision". The Blues opened the scoring quickly with a puck deflecting off a Sharks players stick into the net. There have been times where Tarasenko has been inconsistent in the Stanley Cup Playoffs, but still is second on the Blues in playoff goals with eight. Captain Joe Pavelski skated one shift in the third period of that game before leaving as well. Several key players were out of the lineup for Tuesday's game due to injuries.

Krasinski, who was raised in Newton, Mass., is a Bruins fan, a point he made clear with a follow-up tweet juxtaposing himself in B's gear beside Fischer - a St. Louis native - in her Blues jersey.

However over the next three months of the 2018-19 National Hockey League regular season, the Blues went on a tear for the ages. It was the lesson learned from their most recent battle with adversity: Game 3 of these conference finals, when a hand pass missed by all four officials led to a winning goal by Karlsson.

Despite already being down 3-2 in the series, they're going to be short-handed in Game 6. Despite the ailment, he's tied for second on the Sharks with 16 points during this playoff run. According to, teammates Alexander Steen, Joel Edmundson, Robert Bortuzzo, Jaden Schwartz and Robby Farri were watching the Eagles-Bears NFC Wild Card game at a bar in Philadelphia when they got the idea to change the team's celebration tune. This type of checking game created, what I think was the Blues ultimate plan, a complete breakdown of the Sharks game plan. This constant game of relentless checking made the Sharks not only create turnovers but kept them from playing their own finesse game.

The Blues' ability to close out this game was not lost on them afterward. If both goaltenders maintain their current level of play, this will likely be a low-scoring series. The Sharks were able to get on the board, but unable to come back.

It showed just how hungry Bruins fans are for the Stanley Cup, and just how frenzied the following is with Game 1 of the Stanley Cup Final scheduled for Monday night against the St. Louis Blues at the Garden. This is undeniable. But the Sharks went out so meekly on the offensive end in these last three games.

The Blues have never won the Stanley Cup and will face six-time champions Boston Bruins in the final. It was an awesome run, riddled with the controversy of 5 minute majors, goals being reversed from off-sides, and hand-passes not being called in OT. Boston most recently competed for the Cup in 2013 and won in 2011. The Sharks put forth a valiant effort and nothing to be ashamed of, it was just not enough in the end.
