Blues knock out Stars with double-OT win in Game 7

Blues knock out Stars with double-OT win in Game 7 ST. LOUIS—Pat Maroon put in a rebound of a shot by Robert Thomas 5:50 into the second overtime to give the St. Louis Blues a 2-1 win in Game 7 of their second-round series with Dallas and put them in the NHL Western Conference final. Thomas took a shot that Stars netminder Ben Bishop stopped, but Maroon, in front of the goal, jumped and shot the puck high and in. It was the 54th shot of the game for the Blues, and it was St. Louis-born Maroon beating Bishop, who played high school hockey in the city. The Blues will face San Jose or Colorado in the conference final starting later this week.

The St Louis Blues are following the lead of the Boston Bruins as the teams get ready to meet in the Stanley Cup Final.

The Blues whipped the San Jose Sharks 5-1 in Game 6 of the Western Conference Final on Tuesday night to clinch the series, their third win in a row. After their victory, they were presented with the Campbell Bowl as the playoff winners of the West. Nobody from their team, led by captain Alex Pietrangelo, touched the trophy:

The Boston Bruins, which swept the Carolina Hurricanes to advance to the Stanley Cup Final, did the same thing and did not touch the Prince of Wales Trophy upon clinching their series.

There is a superstition that you should not touch the trophy until it’s the ultimate one — the Stanley Cup. But from 2016-2018, the three teams did touch their conference trophy and went on to win it all, so maybe the superstition is overrated.
