NHL Postseason Caterwaul: What a Maroon! Big Rig’s goal gives Blues Game 7 win over Stars

Patrick Maroon wins series with double-overtime tally

NHL: Stanley Cup Playoffs-Dallas Stars at St. Louis Blues Jeff Curry-USA TODAY Sports

Hometown hero Patrick Maroon scored 5:50 into double overtime to give the St. Louis Blues a 2-1 win over the Dallas Stars, ending a taut goaltending battle between Jordan Binnington and Ben Bishop. Vince Dunn opened the scoring 13:30 into the first before Mats Zuccarello countered for Dallas 2:25 later. The teams would go almost seventy minutes before the “BIg Rig” won it by poking in a rebound after Robert Thomas ripped a shot off the post following a Tyler Bozak faceoff win. The 19-year-old Thomas also drew an assist on Dunn’s first postseason goal. Bishop almost stole the game for Dallas, finishing with 52 saves, making him just the fifth goalie in NHL history to face 50 or more shots in a Game 7. Binnington only had to 30 shots during the game. The Blues advance to the Western Conference final for the first time since 2016, where they will face the winner of the San Jose-Colorado series.
