2019 Stanley Cup Final Update
Now Boston leads this best of seven series 2-1. Game three was a 7-2 blowout and domination for the Bruins. Should Boston post the NHL Betting online win in game four they will need only one more win for the Stanley Cup. Account of game five being in Boston adds to the importance of this matchup.

Tuukka vs. the Rookie
Extending the Blues remarkable playoff run is rookie goaltender Jordan Binnington. Until game three he was outplaying Boston’s Tuukka Rask. However, game three was a catastrophe. Binnington was chased from the game after allowing five goals on 19 shots. By contrast Rask turned aside 27 out of 29 St. Louis shots. In view of game three the question is if Binnington can recover. Much like the rest of the Blues team he may have been too keyed up for game three at home. Rask remains a top tier candidate for the Conn Smythe Trophy as playoff MVP.
Not withstanding game three the Blues have shown great ability to bounce back. To illuminate they are 4-2 in post season following a loss. Most important of all they were the last place team in the NHL on January 3. Owing to that is that it would be foolish to write them off just yet.

On the Blues were sloppy and perhaps too revved up for game three. As mentioned earlier they have been a strong NHL Betting online value after a loss. Subsequently Binnington and St. Louis can’t be any worse than game three.
