The Blues had a four-minute power play late in the period when Tyler Bozak took a high stick, but it was cut in half when Jaden Schwartz was called for goaltender interference. Boston had a power play early in the period that the Blues killed. The game got increasingly chippy in the second period, with plenty of action after the whistle. Tarasenko missed part of the second period, apparently with an equipment issue.

Coyle started the scoring after Sammy Blais was called for goalie interference. On the ensuring power play, Jake DeBrusk, trailing the play, got a pass and took the puck below the goal-line, where he passed out front to Coyle, who was alone in the slot and shot between Jordan Binnington's legs to make it 1-0.

The Blues tied the game with 10:23 to go in the period on a shot by Bortuzzo that deflected in off of defenceman Matt Grzelcyk. The play was kept alive by Gunnarsson racing to keep a puck in at the blue line.

Bruins spoil Blues’ party as Stanley Cup final comes back to St. Louis

Bruins spoil Blues’ party as Stanley Cup final comes back to St. Louis ST. LOUIS—It was a game St. Louis had waited 49 years to see, and you have to think that for most off the fans at Enterprise Center on Saturday night, it was not worth the wait. The first Stanley Cup final game in St. Louis since 1970 was a disaster, with the Blues losing 7-2, in Game 3 as the Bruins reclaimed the edge in the series at 2-1 and home-ice advantage. The Blues fell to 5-6 at home in the post-season. Game 4 in Monday night at Enterprise Center. The Bruins scored five times on rookie goaltender Jordan Binnington and he was pulled in the second period, the first time in his NHL career that had happened. Jake Allen appeared in his first game since April 3.

The Stanley Cup is a trophy awarded annually to the playoff champion club of the National Hockey League (NHL) ice hockey league. It was donated by the Governor General of Canada Lord Stanley of Preston in 1892, and is the oldest professional sports trophy in North America.

Forty seconds later, Boston was ahead again. Sean Kuraly, who had the game-winning goal in Game 1, made a slick backhand pass from behind the net past two Blues to Joakim Nordstrom, who cut across the crease and backhanded in the shot, again between Binnington's legs.

With 5:05 to go, the Blues tied it again. Tarasenko played the puck out of the Blues' end to Jaden Schwartz on the left wing on a partial break. Schwartz's shot was blocked by Rask, and the rebound came to Tarasenko. His initial shot was blocked by defenceman Zdeno Chara, but he got the puck again and reached out to put it past Rask.

Boston had a late power play after Oskar Sundqvist was called for boarding for crushing Grzelcyk into the boards. Grzelcyk was down on the ice and stayed down for a while before being helped off to the dressing room. The Blues killed the power play and Grzelcyk didn't return to the ice in the second period.

The Blues were playing without forward Robert Thomas, who had an undisclosed injury. Coach Craig Berube said it was not related to the hit he took in Game 1 from Boston's Torey Krug. Thomas has been nursing a minor injury, believed to be to his wrist, for two weeks, which has kept him from practising but not from playing.

Also not in the lineup on Wednesday was defenceman Vince Dunn, who missed his fifth consecutive game after taking a puck to the face in Game 3 of the San Jose series. Dunn has been more involved in practice and had returned to a regular visor from the full-coverage one he had been wearing, but he apparently was not ready to return.
