ST. LOUIS — The Stanley Cup Final is all tied at two games apiece as the Blues largely dominated the final two periods with their puck possession in the offensive zone to take Game 4 4-2 on Monday night as the series shifts back to Boston.
The biggest story in the game is Zdeno Chara took a puck to the mouth early in the second period. He returned to the Bruins' bench in the third but did not play as the Bruins' defense again looked tired playing down a man.
The Blues got the jump by scoring less than a minute into the game, but Charlie Coyle evened the game before Vladimir Tarasenko sent the Blues into the intermission with the lead.
The Blues dominated the second period but Brandon Carlo's goal was the only tally.
Ryan O'Reilly banged a rebound home with about nine minutes left for his second goal of the game, and the Bruins only had one shot on goal from there on out.
After trouncing the Blues in a 7-2 beatdown on Saturday in Game 3, the Boston Bruins will look to take a commanding 3-1 series lead in the Stanley Cup Final when they battle St. Louis in Game 4 Monday night. Puck drop is set for 8 p.m. Follow along for updates from Monday's game.
