Making History On A Wednesday
The Blues have not had much luck during the Stanley Cup in the past. In the late ’60s, the Blues made it into three Stanley Cup Finals. The team ended up being swept all three times, not winning a single game. Since then, the Blues have not been in the finals. That finally changed this season.
On Wednesday, the Blues made history. The Blues Twitter account tweeted that the game two victory was the first Stanley Cup final win in franchise history.
The game did not look good for the Blues. The Bruins scored the first point of the game within the first five minutes. The Blues did not let that stand and they scored five minutes after that. The game was now tied 1-1.
The tie did not last very long though. Within 30 seconds, the Bruins scored and took a 2-1 lead over the Blues. Most of the scoring for the game happened within the first 10 minutes. With five minutes left in the first period, the Blues scored to tie the game at 2-2.
Both teams tightened their defenses during the second and third periods. Neither team scored another point for 40 minutes of gameplay. But it wasn’t completely even during this time. The Blues created more shooting opportunities during these two periods. Feeling good about their offense, period three ended with both teams tied 2-2.
Game 2 of the Stanley Cup Finals headed to overtime. The next score will determine the winner of the game. Fans did not have to wait too long. In about four minutes, the Blues scored and the game was over 3-2. This marked the first victory that the Blues had in the Stanley Cup Finals in franchise history.
