YES SUH!!!! At last! St. Louis Blues end 52-year wait to win first-ever Stanley Cup with 4-1 victory over Boston Bruins Blues dominated the host Bruins in Game 7 of the Stanley Cup Finals in Boston on Wednesday night St. Louis wins its first-ever Stanley Cup championship since the team was founded in 1967 Ryan O’Reilly was awarded the Conn Smythe Trophy as the most valuable player of the playoffs The Boston Bruins found out what San Jose Sharks, Dallas Stars and Winnipeg Jets learned the hard way. Don't let the St. Louis Blues take a lead. Craig Berube's team showed during the playoffs it could lock down a hockey game better than anyone else in the NHL. Their style of game translates perfectly to playing with a lead, a recipe that led to them finishing off Boston 4-1 in Game 7 and lifting the Stanley Cup. "FUCK YEAH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!".......................EXULTATION +10 St. Louis Blues left wing Alexander Steen (20) hoists the Stanley Cup after defeating the Boston Bruins in game seven of the 2019 Stanley Cup Final at TD Garden in Boston on Wednesday +10 Jaden Schwartz #17, Jordan Binnington #50 and Brayden Schenn #10 of the St. Louis Blues celebrate after the buzzer sounded +10 Carl Gunnarsson #4 of the St. Louis Blues hoists the Stanley Cup after his team's dramatic victory in Boston on Wednesday After the regular season saw an NHL-record 138 multi-goal comebacks, the Blues went 4-0 in the Cup final when taking a lead of any kind on the Bruins and didn't lose a single playoff game when up by at least two goals. So much of that can be traced back to Berube's changes when he took over as interim coach for Mike Yeo in November.

Even Bruins coach Bruce Cassidy conceded that the Blues 'play a different game' when they're ahead. Because of how well the Blues defend and even move the puck differently when they're ahead in a game, it gets increasingly difficult over the course of a game for an opponent to come back on the Blues. They also went 4-1 in chances to eliminate a team - and after losing Game 6 on home ice were clinical in holding on to a multi-goal lead in Game 7. 'Goals are scored, no lead is safe,' said rookie goaltender Jordan Binnington, a big part of making sure Blues' leads were safe. Binnington came out of nowhere to lead St. Louis to the Stanley Cup. Binnington didn't have the best numbers in the playoffs, or at least not close to his otherworldly regular season, but he was the biggest reason St. Louis won Game 5 to move to the verge of winning it all and made stopped 32 of the 33 shots he faced in Game 7. Blues forward Ryan O’Reilly, set a franchise record with the most points in one playoff year with 23, was awarded the Conn Smythe Trophy as the most valuable player of the playoffs. "LOOK AT THOSE MOTHERFUCKERS"..................LOSERS LAMENTATIONS +10 The Bruins hang their heads after the team's disappointing loss against St. Louis at TD Garden in Boston on Wednesday 'I stopped trying to worry about the outcome and just give it everything I had,' said O’Reilly, who scored his team’s opening goal in each of the final four games of the Stanley Cup Final. 'I was getting bounces. It was amazing, my linemates played great, I thought we created every night. It was just amazing.' The Bruins, who had never before hosted a Game Seven of a Stanley Cup Final, made a solid start and created all sorts of pressure but it was the Blues who jumped out to an early 2-0 lead despite being outshot 12-4 in the opening frame. O’Reilly opened the scoring with about three minutes left in the period when he cleverly re-directed a shot from the point by Jay Bouwmeester that went right through Boston goalie Tuukka Rask’s legs. "YEEEEAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!".............HEATHEN PANDEMONIUM BREAKS OUT +10 Blues fans celebrate the team's Stanley Cup victory in Game 7 during a watch party at Busch Stadium in St. Louis on Wednesday "WE'RE HAPPY AND GAY!!!!!!!!".................QUEER'S REJOICE +10 Blues fans also gathered for a watch party at the team's home arena, the Enterprise Center, in St. Louis on Wednesday Blues defenseman Pietrangelo added another with eight seconds left in the period when he skated in and used a nifty backhand deke to beat Rask and silence the stunned home crowd. St. Louis nearly added a third midway through the second period but Zdeno Chara managed to swat the puck away from the goal line after a shot from Brayden Schenn went off the crossbar and Rask’s shoulder before dropping in the crease. Schenn did make it 3-0 when he took a centering pass from Vladimir Tarasenko and fired it off the post and past Rask with under nine minutes to play before Zach Sanford put the game out of reach with his first of the playoffs with under five minutes to play. Boston broke Binnington’s shutout bid when Matt Grzelcyk found the net with just over two minutes to play.
