ST. LOUIS — The Blues' power play has been woefully underwhelming so far during the Stanley Cup Final — cashing in on just one of its 10 bids against the Bruins through three games.

It’s a facet of the game that’s left much to be desired for the Western Conference Champions, but based on the way this series has progressed (especially on the penalty kill), it might be St. Louis’ best avenue to land punches against Tuukka Rask and Boston.

The challenge is getting Boston in the crosshairs of the on-ice officials, which the Blues achieved to some degree on Saturday night — with Boston whistled for eight different minor penalties, including four alone in the final period of play.

It very well could have been more, as it looks as though the Blues are making a concerted effort to get under Boston’s collar in search of more power-play reps.
