On Wednesday, June 12th, 2019, the St. Louis Blues defeated the Boston Bruins at TD Garden in Boston to win the 105th Stanley Cup Finals four games to three. It was the first (and, as of this writing, only) Stanley Cup championship for the Blues franchise, and the ninth that was won in Massachusetts. These are the top five players that I felt most stood out during the series.
5. #47 Torey Krug (Bruins)- D
Krug took player of the game in game three, scoring a goal and three assists as the Bruins took home the 7-2 win.
4. #4 Carl Gunnarsson (Blues)- D
Gunnarsson was game two’s player of the game, getting one goal and one assist on the way to the Blues’ 3-2 victory in overtime.
3. #27 Alex Pietrangelo (Blues)- D
Pietrangelo got player of the game honors in game seven, as he got one goal and one assist as the Blues took a 4-1 win to earn the series victory.
2. #90 Ryan O’Reilly (Blues)- F
O’Reilly took player of the game in game four, grabbing a goal and one assist as the Blues won it 4-2.
1. #50 Jordan Binnington (Blues)- G
Binnington earned player of the game honors in game five, making 32 saves on 33 chances to give the Blues the 2-1 win.
