St. Louis Blues beat Boston Bruins, 4-1, for first Stanley Cup

The St. Louis Blues won the first Stanley Cup in their 52-year history Wednesday night, beating the Boston Bruins, 4-1, on the road in Game 7 of a back-and-forth series to complete a Cinderella comeback from last place halfway through the season.

Goals by Jay Bouwmeester, Alex Pietrangelo, Brayden Schenn and Zach Sanford ended the Blues’ status as the oldest team still in the league never to have won the Stanley Cup. It was the 390th playoff game in their history, none of which, until Wednesday night, had clinched a championship.
