For the first time in eight years, and only the 17th time in the league's history, according to The Boston Globe, the NHL Stanley Cup Final comes down to Game 7 after the Boston Bruins bounced back from 3-2 deficit to even the series in decisive fashion, beating the St. Louis Blues in Game 6 by a 5-1 score. After Wednesday's game, either the Blues will hoist the first Stanley Cup trophy in their 51-season history, or Boston will carry off its seventh, going all the way back to the team's founding in the pre-NHL era of 1924. A Bruins win would also be the 12th major sports championship for a Boston franchise since 2002, if they can capture the Cup in the game that will live stream from TD Garden.
