NHL:

St. Louis Blues  2  Boston Bruins  1

Jordan Binnington made 38 saves to lead the Blues who take a 3-2 lead in the best-of-seven final.

They can win the Stanley Cup at home in Game 6 on Sunday night.

Boston outshot St. Louis 39-21.

Binnington’s nine playoff road wins is the most by a rookie in NHL history.

Ryan O’Reilly and David Perron scored for the Blues before Jake DeBrusk tallied for the Bruins, who had Captain Zdeno Chara in the lineup despite a fractured jaw.

Perron’s winner, midway thru the 3rd, came seconds after the officials missed an obvious slewfoot by Tyler Bozak of St.Louis.

“The National Hockey League’s getting a black eye with their officiating in these playoffs, and there’s another one that’s going to be talked about,” said Bruins coach Bruce Cassidy.

The Blues are 9-3 on the road in the playoffs and just 6-6 at home.

The Bruins are 7-5 at home and 7-3 on the road.
