The Boston Bruins won the first game in the final of the North American ice hockey league NHL. They defeated the Saint-Louis Blues on Monday with 4-2.
In the final, both teams play for the prestigious Stanley Cup. The visitors were 0-2 ahead thanks to Brayden Schenn (8.) and Vladimir Tarasenko (22.), but the home team put the crooked situation right. Connor Clifton (23.), Charlie McAvoy (33.), Sean Kuraly (46.) and Bard Marchand (59.) accounted for the 4-2 win.
On Wednesday-evening, the two teams play against each other again in the Boston Garden, where 17,500 ice hockey fans show up for the first final match. Whoever wins first four times is champion.
Boston is aiming for a seventh NHL title, the first since 2011. Saint-Louis is looking for a first title after three lost finals (1968, 1969, 1971).
