BOSTON — The Boston Bruins will face the St. Louis Blues in this year's Stanley Cup Final, ice hockey's pinnacle championship series.
Boston owns home ice advantage during the best-of-seven title decider, so the first two games will be played at TD Garden along with Games 5 and 7, if needed. St. Louis' Enterprise Center gets 3 and 4, as well as Game 6.
A rematch of the 1970 Stanley Cup Final, in which Boston clinched a 4-0 sweep over St. Louis with Bobby Orr's "The Flight" overtime goal, it's the fourth consecutive league finals featuring at least one team vy ing for a first franchise title — Vegas in 2018, Nashville in 2017 and San Jose in 2016.
The Blues have never won a Stanley Cup, despite having played for three straight from 1968-1970. They were swept 4-0 each time.
The Bruins, meanwhile, have won six Cups in 19 appearances; the latest in 2011 against the Canucks. Boston lost to Chicago in 2013.
NEWS CENTER Maine will broadcast Games 1 and 4, and, if necessary, Games 5, 6 and 7. Games 2 and 3 will be on NBCSN.
