After scoring four unanswered goals in Game 1 against the St. Louis Blues, as USA Today covered, the heavily favored Bruins look to defend their home ice and take a commanding two-game lead in the 2018-2019 NHL Stanley Cup final series. The Bruins appear likely to play an even more dominant game after finding their legs following an 11-day layoff since they completed a sweep of the Carolina Hurricanes in the Eastern Conference finals — a layoff that showed in a sluggish first period and early minutes of the second — as the visiting Blues got off to a shocking 2-0 lead after the first 21 minutes. Boston will hope to continue their momentum from the latter stages of Game 1 when they play Game 2, a contest that will live stream from TD Garden.

Bruins goalie Tuuka Rask, who has recorded a.940 save percentage throughout the playoffs — best of any goaltender in the current postseason, according to Hockey Reference — saved 18 of the 20 shots sent his way in Game 1.
But it was the Bruins' defensemen who can take much of the credit for Boston's 1-0 series lead, restricting St.Louis to just nine shots on goal in the second period and a mere three in the third, according to NHL.com. Nonetheless, the Blues say they are confident that they can quickly climb back into the series.
"Once you see the video and see what we actually did and know that we didn't get to our game or play our game at all it makes us feel confident in the room that we can turn the page, get back to playing the way we can," Blues Center Brayden Schenn — who scored the first St. Louis goal at 7:23 of the opening period, per HR — told NHL.com.
The Bruins have now won eight playoff games in a row after losing Games 2 and 3 of their second-round playoff series against the Columbus Blue Jackets, per HR.
