Gunnarsson Overtime Goal Lifts Blues over Bruins in Game 2

Other than the first-period in Game 2 of the Stanley Cup Finals, there would be no scoring in the second and third-periods. The game was tied at two entering the overtime possession. On a delayed penalty call, Carl Gunnarsson ripped a shot from the point and the puck went passed Tuukka Rask and into the net and the St. Louis Blues won Game 2 in overtime 3-2  over the Boston Bruins and the series is now tied at one game a piece.

Rask never saw the puck because he was screened in front of the net and it was a perfectly placed shot. For the most part, St. Louis outplayed  Boston in Game 2. The Bruins could easily be down 0-2 in this series, but they are fortunate it is only 1-1.

Charlie Coyle scored a power-play goal for Boston 4:44 into the game.

Robert Bortuzzo tied the game at one for St. Louis 4:53 later in the period.

Joakim Nordstrom scored 40 seconds later for the Boston Bruins, which made the score 2-1 at the time.

Vladimir Tarasenko tied the game at two off his own rebound for the St. Louis Blues with 5:05 remaining in the first-period.

Jordan Binnington made 21 saves for St. Louis.

Tuukka Rask made 34 saves for Boston.

Game 3 of the Stanley Cup Finals will be on Saturday night and the series will now shift to St. Louis at the Enterprise Center.
