The St Louis Blues Came Together After the Game Three Nightmare And Said We Owe It to Our Fans To Win Game Four On Home Ice. And that's Exactly What the St Louis Blues Did as they Beat the Boston Bruins In Game Four On Monday Night 4-2. And The Bon Jovi Song Gloria Played at the Enterprise Center for the First time In the Cup Playoffs. And Yes The Blues Won Their First Stanley Cup Finals Game In St Louis, They Were 0-7 Before tonight.

Here's What The Blues Did Right In Game Four...

Jordan Binnington Was Much Better As He Had 21 Saves in The Game. He Did Much Better than Game Three as He Was Pulled, Much Better Jordan. The Blues Also Did Spread the Puck Around the Rink As they Had Some Bigtime Players in the Game And they Made the Bruins Totally Miserable In Game Four.

Ryan O'Reiliy, He Had Two Goals In the Game and He's One Of My Players Of the Game, However He's Not the Only One As we Had some others To.

Valdimir Tarasenko, He's Somebody I would Love to Have On My Team As He Had One Goal In the Game. Tarasenko Is Somebody Who Could Score A lot If Given a Chance.

Brayden Schenn Had 1 Goal and 1 Asist Tonight in the Game and He was Another Star Who I had on my Watch List. He Needs To Be a Factor In Game Five on Thursday.

Jordan Binnington Said This To Reporters After The Game...

" I Feel Much Better that I Did After Game Three After All We Won Game Four and we Have a Fighting Chance as It's Now the Best 2-of-3. And My Teammates Were a Big Help and They Did Not Have to Rely On Me So Much, I'm a Happy Man and Goalie."

What Went Wrong for The Bruins In Game Four...

Let's See, Tuukka Rask Did Have 34 Saves In Game Four But He Gave Up Four Big Goals In the Game. And on Top Of that Patrice Bergeron Has Not Been a Factor that Much Either In this Stanley Cup Finals and He's Supposed To Be The Franchise Player. The Unusual Players Are Doing all of the Scoring and Here's What I Mean.

Charlie Coyle, He had a Goal In the Game, It's Great that He's Doing His Part But He Needs to Go Goal Crazy In Game Five.

And Defenseman Brandon Carlo Had a Goal In the Game. The Big Bad Bruins Haven't Shown Me Much Of Anything with the Exception of the 7-2 Beatdown In Game Three. Bergeron Has to Step Up.

And Tuukka Rask Said the Same Thing It's Been An Unusual Stanley Cup Finals We Lose a Close One and the We Get a Huge Victory and we Suffer a Setback but We will Play Better In Game Five at Home.

Here's My Take...

The Blues Winning Game Four Was What The St Louis Blues Needed after Getting Embarrassed At Home In Game Three. The Whole Team Stepped Up Tonight. The Blues Outshot the Bruins 38-23 On Monday and The Fans Were Loud at the Enterprise Center And that's What The Blues Players Needed. And Now We Go Back to Boston For Game Five At TD Garden. And Yes We Will Have a Game Six Sunday Night In St Louis. It Now Becomes a Best 2 Out Of 3 Games For the Stanley Cup.

Here's What The Blues Need to Do...

They Need to Do What They Did In Game Four, Tarasenko Needs to Be a Factor and At Least Score in Game Five. Jordan Binnington Needs to Repeat the Performance of Monday Night and Be Red Hot. And Ryan O'Reiliy He Needs to Repeat the Two Goal Performance Of What Happened On Monday. The Blues Need to Avoid The Nightmare Of Saturday Night and they Need to Play Close To The Bruins the Rest Of the Way.

Here's What the Bruins Need to Do...

They Have to Go Goal Crazy In Game Five at Least. Patrice Bergeron Has Got To Be a Factor In these Close Games. The Only Game He Was a Factor Was In Game Three In the Blowout. The Bruins Have got To Give Some Support to Tuukka Rask. He Had 34 Saves tonight But the Bruins Need to Wake Up On Offense. Rask is Doing His Part But the Bruins Offense Is Not.

And the Bruins Have to Have at Least 30 Or More Shots On Goal In the Next Two Games Because If they Don't It's Lights Out, And the Offense Has Not Played Well Except For Game Three.

It's Now 2 Out Of 3 For the Stanley Cup and You Have Seen What Both Teams Need to Do and I Will Say this We Could Be Looking at a Seven Game Battle Because these Two Teams Want It.

But the Question Is Who Wants It the Most, We Will Find Out after Game Six Or Even Game Seven.
