The St. Louis Blues defeated the Boston Bruins in overtime, 3-2, Wednesday night.

In the first period, a whirlwind of power plays and goals were scored. Boston scored the first goal, sending the crowd into a frenzy. Then, St. Louis evened the scored at 1-1. This was a common theme for the night. Then Boston’s Joakim Nordstrom broke the tie, just to have St. Louis’ Vladimir Tarasenko even things up again.

Things were quite offensive for the second and third periods, but there was no shortage of physicality and energy.

In the end, Carl Gunnarsson led the Blues to victory with an overtime slap shot that sent Boston’s crowd silent. This was more than just a win for the Blues. This is the first Stanley Cup Finals in history for the Blues. They’re hungry for the cup, and it shows.

The tied series moves to St. Louis Saturday night. The puck drops for Game 3 at 8 p.m
