Bruins, Blues factor into top Game 7 moments in playoff history

From 1950 to today, check out the best Game 7 moments in Stanley Cup Playoffs history from the likes of Steve Yzerman, Sidney Crosby, Pat Maroon and more.

There’s nothing quite like a Game 7. When it’s Game 7 of a Stanley Cup Final, you turn the amplifier up to 11.

Whenever you get moments to catch your breath from Game 7 of Blues - Bruins airing on NBC right now (stream here), check out the video above for reminders of how wild these decisive contests can get.

Early on in the video, both Bruins and Blues fans will find moments they’d like to ignore, including the Too Many Men on the Ice debacle for Boston, and that painful Steve Yzerman goal against St. Louis. The clips go way back, but when they become more recent, things get better for the Bruins and Blues. (Not so much for, say, the Maple Leafs.)

Also things to look for:

  • Matteau! Matteau! Matteau!
  • Plenty of Bryan Rust.
  • Yes, there’s an appearance from “Mr. Game 7,” Justin Williams.

Will Wednesday’s game earn a spot on a future version of this countdown? Bet on it.

Game 7 of the 2019 Stanley Cup Final airs on NBC at 8 p.m. ET on Wednesday (stream here).
