Carl Gunnarsson made history for St. Louis on Wednesday night.
His goal at 3:51 of overtime in Game 2 gave the Blues a 3-2 victory over the Bruins and tied the 2019 Stanley Cup Final at one game apiece. It also gave the St. Louis franchise its first Stanley Cup Final win.
The Blues were 0-13 all time in Stanley Cup Final games prior to Wednesday. St. Louis was swept in each of its previous three appearances in the Cup final (in 1968, 1969 and 1970) and its 4-2 loss in Game 1 on Monday night extended the losing streak.
First Stanley Cup Final win for the Blues, who are now 1-13 in the championship round. Gunnarsson, by the way, wears No. 4. Last guy to score an OT goal in a Bruins-Blues Cup Final game also wore that number.

But you know what they say: The 14th time’s the charm, right?
