Do-Or-Die Game 7 Awaits Blues & Bruins in Cup Final

After an 82-game regular season and two months of grueling playoff hockey, the right to hoist the Stanley Cup comes down to Game 7 at TD Garden tonight.

Blues vs Bruins Game Center

Standout Stats

  • Sportsbooks opened the Bruins as -170 favorites with a total of 5.5 for Game 7.
  • St. Louis hasn’t fared well in its own barn, but it’s been fantastic on the road. The Blues are 9-3 SU in the postseason away from home.
  • Tuukka Rask could easily take home the Conn Smythe Trophy regardless of which club wins tonight. Rask sports a sparkling .938 save percentage in the playoffs, a figure that improves to .973 (145 saves on 149 shots) in elimination games this spring.
  • Home teams own a 12-4 record in Game 7s of the Stanley Cup Final. Keep in mind, however, that the road squad has won the last two (Pittsburgh in 2009, Boston in 2011).
  • The Blues have been getting by with an extremely underwhelming power play. St. Louis is 1-for-18 in the Stanley Cup Final and went 0-for-4 with the man advantage in a 5-1 defeat in Game 6.
  • Is yet another OVER in store in this series? After Game 6 went above the closing total, the OVER is now 3-1 in the past four games of the Final.

My Best Bet for Blues-Bruins Game 7

UNDER 5.5 goals

While the majority of bettors will likely be on the OVER due to the high-scoring past four games, I’m going against the grain and backing the UNDER in Game 7. Rask has had ice in his veins in elimination games and Jordan Binnington has been fantastic at bouncing back after a poor showing, so the setting seems right for this one to go UNDER the 5.5-goal total, in my eyes.
