Boston Bruins v St Louis Blues will match up in the Stanley Cup Finals. So, the last time these two teams faced each other was in 1969 and 1970 in the finals. Indeed, a lot has changed since than.

In the regular season, the Blues finished third. In round one of the playoffs, they defeated the Winnipeg Jets. Hence, in the second round, the Blues matched up with the Dallas Stars and that series went a full seven games. Finally, in the match-up against the San Jose Sharks, the Blues defeated the Sharks in six games.
