The Boston Bruins and St. Louis Blues faceoff tonight at TD Garden for Game 2 of the Stanley Cup Finals. 

Boston skated away with the Game 1 victory to take a 1-0 series lead after a 4-2 victory. 

During Game 1, the Blues got out to the early lead and scored the first two goals, but after not playing for over a week, the Bruins eventually got their legs back and scored four unanswered goals. 

Blues captain Alex Pietrangelo believes the Bruins got lucky and the Blues gave the Bruins the Game 1 win. 

"It was more us," Pietrangelo said, according to Tom Gulitti of

"I think we got away from our game. We got spread out, allowed them to play the way they wanted to through the neutral zone."

The Bruins outshot the Blues 30-12 in the second and third periods and dominated the Blues, but Blues forward Brayden Schenn also believes it wasn't because Boston is better, St. Louis just wasn't playing their game. 

"We just didn't get to our game at all," Schenn said. "We turned over pucks, didn't support each other, started flipping the puck a lot. We weren't making a whole lot of plays, and it forced us to defend a lot."
