Newspaper Accused of Jinxing St. Louis Blues

Parayko has 12 points (two goals, 10 assists) and is averaging 24:58 in ice time in 24 Stanley Cup Playoff games.

The ads' release happened last night just before Game 6 of the series, which could have resulted in the Blues winning their first Stanley Cup had they won the game, as they were leading the Bruins 3 games to 2 going into the matchup, but the Blues ultimately lost 5-1.

Sunday's struggles certainly weren't for a lack of chances as 12 of the Blues' 29 total shots in the game came on the power play, only to have every single one of them shut down by Rask.

Who can really afford to throw a beer away in this economy, anyways?

Many members of the Bruins have played in a Game 7 of the Stanley Cup Final before as the team beat the Vancouver Canucks on the road back in 2011. A missed call on a blatant penalty late in the third period of Thursday's game put the spotlight on the referees, and the Bruins were understandably upset. The Boston defenseman appeared close to returning before Game 4 and Game 5, but was not medically cleared.

After a failed Blues' clearing attempt, thanks in part to a great defensive play from Patrice Bergeron, Brad Marchand scored his second goal of the series when he wired a one-timer behind Jordan Binnington to give the Bruins a lead they would never really come close to surrendering the rest of the night.

Berry, who placed a $400 bet on his beloved Blues back in January at 500-to-1 odds, is riding this out with his team.

Considering the recent history, there's reason for the Bruins to be confident that their top stars will shine in Game 7 on Wednesday. He has allowed only four goals in close to 179 minutes of play.

Head coach Bruce Cassidy said Karson Kulman will suit up in Grzelcyk's place.

The Blues seemed stagnant, even though they only recorded three fewer shots.

But Pastrnak quashed any thoughts of a dramatic rally at 14:06 with his ninth playoff goal, and Zdeno Chara tacked on an empty-netter at 17:41. "And now, together, we can finally say 'We won the Cup for St. Louis, '" he added.

That was the continuation of a series-long trend - the Bruins' superiority in special teams. And, in a 5-1 win that forced Game 7, he did just that.
