Bruins - Blues Stanley Cup Final Game One

Bruins - Blues Stanley Cup Final Game One

Fear the Bear!

The Boston Bruins were able to get the game one victory in the 2018/2019 Stanley Cup Finals. You can find a couple of my remarks on the game below.

- Scoring chances:

- Corsi% (shot attempt differential while the player was on ice - the graph below shows all situations): Absolute dominance by the Bruins

- the longer break from game action was not an advantage for the Bruins which were not as solid in the first period

- Blues handed over a lot of powerplays to the Bruins - the two powerplays in the second period (the second led to the equalizer for the Bruins) were a key momentum shift

- huge offensive contribution from Bruins defense - McAwoy and Clifton scored a goal and Krug added 4 shots and an unbelievably beautiful hit:

I love the reaction of Krug to the loss of his bucket - he was happy that he had a haircut last week :P :D

- Schenn scored the game opening goal and added an assist on the second goal, best Blues player from my perspective

- Bergeron 70% face off win - how is it even possible if we get into account that the puck is not all the time dropped perfectly into the middle of the players??
