Which goalie will stand out in Game 1 of the NHL Stanley Cup Finals?

Bruins vs Blues NHL Finals 2019

Game 1 Odds: St. Louis Blues (+132) vs. Boston Bruins (-2); Totals: 5.5

The Boston Bruins had to wait for a little while before knowing for certain who they will face in the 2019 Stanley Cup Finals. While the Bruins needed just four games to take care of business against the Carolina Hurricanes in the East Finals, the Blues had to come back from a 2-1 series deficit to take out the San Jose Sharks over at the other side of the playoff bracket

Much of the Bruins’ success in the postseason can be attributed to netminder Tuuka Rask, who has simply been sensational between the pipes for Boston. Rask tops all goalies with at least two starts in the playoffs with a 1.84 GAA to go along with a .942 saves percentage. Rask is 6-2-4 with a 2.12 GAA and .942 saves percentage in 13 career appearances opposite St. Louis.

St. Louis’ rookie goalie isn’t too shabby either. Jordan Binnington isn’t on the same level as Rask’s, but he is brandishing a 12-7 record, a 2.37 GAA, and a .914 saves percentage in 19 starts this postseason. Binnington will come into the Finals drawing confidence from his fantastic performance in a 2-1 shootout win over the Bruins at home back in February, when he turned away 31 of 32 shots that came his way.
