Blues Battle Back To Force Game 6

Robert Thomas scored a pair of goals for St. Louis including the game-tying goal with under a minute left in regulation. Tyler Bozak, a fourth-line center, became the unlikely hero 3:38 into OT when he scored the game winner.

The Blues, who overcame a 2-0 deficit after the first period, were playing without starting goalie Jordan Binnington. He is out for the remainder of the series after a heavy collision in the crease with Colorado’s Nazem Kadri in Game 3.

Binnington helped the Blues win the Stanley Cup as a rookie goaltender in 2019. He leads the franchise in playoff victories with 20. Backup netminder Ville Husso had 30 saves in the Game 5 win.

MacKinnon Shines For Colorado In Losing Cause

Nathan MacKinnon, who notched a hat trick in the Game 5 loss to St. Louis, scored his third goal on an end-to-end rush to put Colorado up 4-3 with less than three minutes remaining in regulation. He now leads the Avs with eight playoff goals. MacKinnon is now the betting favorite to win the Conn Smythe trophy as the NHL’s most valuable player in the playoffs. He was being dealt at +330 on Thursday morning at DraftKings.

Teammate Cale Makar had been favored to win the award for most of the postseason. Makar is now the second betting choice at +550. MacKinnon and Makar both have a team-high 13 playoff points.

Colorado remains the consensus favorite at sportsbooks to win the 2022 Stanley Cup. Title odds on the Avalanche remained at +135 at DraftKings after the Game 5 loss. Should the Avalanche pull through against the Blues, Colorado will face the winner of the Edmonton Oilers-Calgary Flames series. The Oilers have a 3-1 lead and can close out the Flames tonight in Game 5.
