But, give the center credit, he still found a way to contribute as he was consistently winning faceoffs and giving his team chances to score, but ultimately, it just wasn't enough.

The Boston Bruins knew it would be a tough series against the St. Louis Blues, and Game 2 of the 2019 Stanley Cup Final showed just how tough.
