Stanley Cup Finals: Time, TV, streaming info and everything you need about Game 6 of Bruins-Blues
After defeating the Boston Bruins in Game 5, the St. Louis Blues can capture their first Stanley Cup at home in Game 6 on Sunday.
The Blues won 2-1 Thursday for their second consecutive victory against the Bruins. Rookie goalie Jordan Binnington stopped 38 shots, including 17 in the first period, for a 3-2 series lead.
St. Louis' Ryan O’Reilly scored the first goal and assisted on the second. He has three goals and three assists in the series.
The second goal was controversial because referees missed a tripping penalty by St. Louis' Tyler Bozak on Noel Acciari before David Perron scored. It ended up being the game-winner when Jake DeBrusk scored for Boston.
If the Blues win Sunday, they would become the second consecutive first-time winner, following the Washington Capitals, who made franchise history last season. That hasn’t happened since the Carolina Hurricanes (2006) and Anaheim Ducks (2007) hoisted the Cup in back-to-back years.
If the Bruins win, Game 7 will be in Boston Wednesday.

The Blues will be without forward Ivan Barbashev, who was suspended one game for an illegal check to the head of Boston's Marcus Johansson.
Despite reportedly having a broken jaw and being unable to talk after being hit in the face by a puck in Game 4, Bruins captain Zdeno Chara played in Game 5.
The Bruins had three power-play chances in Game 5 but couldn’t capitalize on any of them. Neither team has a power-play goal the last two games. Bruins coach Bruce Cassidy is making an adjustment by moving Marcus Johansson to the top power-play unit.
