Blues down Sharks, return to Stanley Cup final

The St Louis Blues are back in the National Hockey League Stanley Cup final for the first time since 1970 after beating the San Jose Sharks 5-1 on Tuesday.

The victory on home ice gave the Blues a 4-2 triumph in the best-of-7 Western Conference finals, their third straight win in the series sending them into a Stanley Cup showdown with the Boston Bruins starting on Monday. Vladimir Tarasenko and Brayden Schenn both scored powerplay goals. Ryan O’Reilly had three assists, and Jordan Binnington made 25 saves for the Blues, who were swept by the Bruins in the 1970 championship series. The Blues are the only remaining team from the league’s first expansion in 1967-68 not to have won the Stanley Cup. They have played more games than any other NHL club without lifting the trophy.
