- Puck drops: Game 4 of the Stanley Cup Finals between the Boston Bruins vs. the St. Louis Blues at 8 p.m. ET on Monday, June 3rd, 2019 at the Enterprise Center in St. Louis, Missouri and it will be nationally televised on NBC.
The Boston Bruins didn’t look uncomfortable at all on the road in Game 3 of the Stanley Cup Finals, dominating the St. Louis Blues to retake the lead in the series. The Blues have to play better next time out in Game 4 or risk being put in a tough spot.
St. Louis is the slight favorite in this matchup and a win would send the Stanley Cup Finals back to Boston knotted at two games apiece. This is a humongous showdown and the Blues have to take advantage of the home ice in NHL wagering. Boston, meanwhile, would simply love for a redux of the previous showdown.

The Series So Far…
After losing Game 2, the Bruins made quick work of the Blues in this one. They scored three goals in the first period and then cruised to the 7-2 victory. Center Patrice Bergeron had a goal and two assists, defenseman Torey Krug had a goal and three assists and left winger David Pastrnak added a goal for Boston.
The Bruins’ winning streak of eight games was ended in Game 2, and some wondered how Boston would react as the series shifted to St. Louis. But the Bruins showed no ill effects by scoring the first four goals of the contest. St. Louis needs to tighten up its defense or else the Bruins are going to seize control of this series in Game 4.
Sundqvist Suspension Update
Blues center Oskar Sundqvist was suspended for Game 3 of the series after a hit on Boston’s Matt Grzelcyk in Game 2. Sundqvist will be back for Game 4 and is hoping to have a helpful impact for St. Louis.
Sundqvist had an assist in Game 2 and has a goal and two assists over his past five playoff games. He finished the regular season with 14 goals and 17 assists. Some on the Blues didn’t agree with the suspension but it is water under the bridge now and now St. Louis will welcome him back.
Stanley Cup Finals Game 4 – Bruins at Blues Picks
Our staff picks: Bruins +1.5 -295 and OVER 5.5 +120
The Bruins are clearly the superior team, but playing on the road is not easy. Boston could win this game, but the best idea is riding with the Bruins to cover as 1.5-goal underdogs on the spread. Boston seems likely to lose by one goal if that happens, so this wager will cover bettors even if the Blues manage to tie the series at two after Game 4. The “over” is the better call on the goal total.
