There are rumblings around the league’s fanbase that we were lucky. Not many want to flat out say it, but they have it in their minds that the St. Louis Blues may have snuck one. All of that to say, the city deserved one, but it maybe wasn’t fully earned.
Discussions I’ve encountered have referenced the rookie sensation Jordan Binnington was carrying a horseshoe up his, well, we’ll call it a human pocket to keep it clean around here. Talks that the Blues were dirty and we got away with so many penalties that if called, we lose.
