Preview: Boston Bruins Visit St. Louis For First Time Since 2019 Stanley Cup Finals

The Boston Bruins travel to St. Louis for the first time since Game 6 of the 2019 Stanley Cup Finals Tuesday night. The Bruins won that game 5-1 before losing Game 7 in Boston. Tuesday night’s game is a rematch of the Blues’ 4-2 win in Boston on April 12th. Former Bruins defenseman Torey Krug returned to Boston for the first time since signing with St. Louis and scored a goal in that game.

The Bruins are still without the services of leading goal scorer David Pastrnak and defenseman Hampus Lindholm who was acquired before Anaheim’s trade deadline. The team also announced that goaltender Linus Ullmark (upper-body injury) and forward Jesper Froden (lower-body injury) did not travel with the team. Jeremy Swayman will be in net for Boston.

Forward Curtis Lazar will move up to the second line for the Bruins and play right wing with Erick Haula and Taylor Hall. Matt Gryzelcyk will slot in on the top defensive pair with Charlie McAvoy. The Bruins are just 5-5-0 in their last ten games and are coming off a 2-1 win on Saturday over the Pittsburgh Penguins in Boston. Boston is currently in fourth place in the Atlantic Division with 97 points and holds the top Wild Card spot with a one-point lead over Washington.

The Blues are one of the hottest teams in the NHL at the moment. St. Louis is seeking their tenth straight win and is currently in second place in the Central Division (102 points). The team also welcomes back defenseman Nick Leddy tonight, who missed a game after receiving a stick to the face. Leddy will pair with Justin Faulk on the second pair. Ville Husso will be in goal for the Blues.

Two important things to watch in this game: The Bruins’ power play is 0 for their last 25. The Blues are averaging just under 5.5 goals per game during their nine-game winning streak. The game will begin Tuesday night at 8 pm and will be broadcast on ESPN+ and Hulu exclusively.
