The Bruins face the Blues in a decisive Game 7 of the 2019 Stanley Cup Final on Wednesday at 8 p.m. Boston is trying to win its seventh Stanley Cup, while St. Louis is going for its first.
This isn’t the first time that the Bruins and Blues have met on hockey’s biggest stage. In 1970, Bobby Orr helped to lead Boston to its first Stanley Cup win in 31 years in a 4-0 sweep.
