These Blues stats don't bode well for the Bruins chances of winning the Cup


The Boston Bruins have to win the next two games without losing in order to take home the Stanley Cup. Safe to say, it will be easier said than done.

The last 25 times that a Stanley Cup series was tied at 2-2, the team that won Game 5 has gone on to win the series 18 times. That's a 72 percent success rate. Considering that stat and the fact that the Bruins are playing on the road in Game 6, it would only further complicate their path to the Cup.

Additionally, the St. Louis Blues have put forth a great effort in Games 5-7 of series so far this season. In fact, they've only lost once in eight chances, according to the NHL PR Twitter account.

Add in the fact that the Blues have allowed two or fewer goals in each game, and that could become a problem for a Bruins team that was offensively-challenged in their 2-1 loss to the Blues on Thursday.

The Bruins did come back from a 3-2 deficit to beat the Toronto Maple Leafs in a series earlier this season. So, there is still hope. Still, the Blues will make this a very difficult road for the Bruins as the B's look to take home their seventh Stanley Cup.
