So, the Stanley Cup Finals has been set. After the St. Louis Blues defeated the San Jose Sharks in six games; they are moving on to the finals.
Stanley Cup Finals
In the first place, the St. Louis Blues haven’t been in the finals for 49 years. So, back in 1969 and 1970, the Blues played the Boston Bruins. In this game, the Boston Bruins won. Now, forty nine years later; the two teams will be facing each other.
When the playoffs started, no one expected the Blues and the Bruins to be playing each other. However, this has been a strange year in the NHL playoffs. In the same way, many didn’t expect the Tampa Bay Lightening to be eliminated in the first round. To read about the early rounds; be sure to visit our NHL Playoff Update post.
