NHL Postseason Caterwaul: Florida Panthers Open Forum

Blues and Bruins will resume cup battle tomorrow night

The St. Louis Blues and Boston Bruins get an extra day off for travel as the Stanley Cup Final shifts to St. Louis tied at a game apiece after the Blues took Game 2 in overtime on Wednesday night.

Blues forward Oskar Sundqvist has been suspended for Game 3 of the series for landing an elbow to the head of Bruins defenseman Matt Grzelcyk. Grzelcyk didn’t travel with the team to St. Louis, so he will be out for at least the next two tilts.
