NHL Stanley Cup Championship Finals

Game 2: St. Louis Blues (+145) at Boston Bruins (-175), 8 p.m. ET, NBCSN

NHL Free Pick: St. Louis Blues +140

St. Louis looked to be cruising in Game 1 of the Stanley Cup Finals before the Bruins got their skates underneath them.

The Blues jumped out to a 2-0 lead, but the Bruins fought back to win 4-2 and outshot St. Louis 38-20, including a dominant second period where they led the shot tally 18-3.

The Bruins have won eight straight, but the Blues have performed well as an underdog all postseason and had no issue bouncing back from a Game 1 loss to the San Jose Sharks in the Western Conference Finals.
