Road warrior Blues unfazed by Cup Final Game 7 in Boston


St. Louis Blues and Boston Bruins face off for Game 7 of the Stanley Cup Final on Wednesday

Whichever team gets to its style of game faster and more effectively wins, as has been the story throughout the series

Bruins have won seven of 12 home games in the playoffs

BOSTON – If the St. Louis Blues beat the Boston Bruins in Game 7, perhaps Steve Hatze Petros should get his name on the Stanley Cup.

He is the NHL schedule-maker , making him the most responsible for a January-March stretch when the Blues didn’t play more than one consecutive home game at a time. It was a virtual 70-day road trip that forced a team with a half-dozen new faces to come together under coach Craig Berube. It also helped them put up a 9-3 road record in the playoffs and it is a big reason the Blues say they feel totally at home playing for the Cup in Boston on Wednesday night.
