Third period:

Final buzzer: 5-1 Boston


Chara scores a long-distance empty net goal with 2:19 left to make it 5-1.


That died quickly. The Bruins take a commanding lead with less than six minutes to play in the third on a turnover leading to a Pastrnak goal. The first 5-on-5 goal for Boston’s top line this series.


There’s life again! Ryan O’Reilly lights the fire with one that sneaks in on Rask for his seventh goal, and franchise record-tying 21st point of the playoffs.


Kuhlman scores in his Cup Final debut to extend Boston’s lead to 3-0. It’s looking like Game 7 is almost a guarantee. John Moore and Tuukka Rask are the only Bruins players remaining that have suited up this postseason and not scored.


Brandon Carlo bounces a soft knucklepuck in from the point to extend Boston’s lead to two. Things just got a bit more urgent for St. Louis in Game 6.

Second period:

Buzzer: 1-0 Bruins

No goals were scored in the second period, and the Bruins still lead the shot count 20-19. Twenty minutes will decide if Boston will extend their series, or if St. Louis can come back and make history on home ice.

Rask and McAvoy make one of the most puzzling saves of the series so far to keep the Bruins ahead 1-0.

Incredible vision from McAvoy that sends Heinen on a quick break, and a perfect stick lift from Pietrangelo to deny the shot.

First period:

Buzzer: 1-0 Boston

Fairly even period, shots are 11-10 for Boston. Both teams had power-play opportunities, and Boston capitalized on its 5-on-3 chance, as expected. St. Louis’s forecheck has been great at hemming the Bruins in their own end, and Rask has looked outstanding so far.


A 5-on-3 goal for Marchand gets the Bruins on the board first. He’s now tallied 22 points in 23 playoff games. The Bruins’ power play remains lethal.

Pre game:

Brett Hull is a few deep tonight!!!

For the last time before retirement, Blues’ anthem singer Mr. Charles Glenn saved his best for last.
