After four games between the Boston Bruins and the St Louis Blues in the Stanley Cup Final, the series is tied at two wins for each team.
The Boston Bruins losing Game 4 was certainly a disappointment to the team and its fans. With some negativity surrounding the most recent game, there are a lot of positive stories.
No matter the outcome of the Stanley Cup Final, the Boston Bruins have come a long way during the 2018-2019 season. Despite injuries to key players throughout the regular season and playoffs, they are in the Stanley Cup finals for the third time this decade and the first time since 2013.
Age wise, the Boston Bruins are one of the youngest teams in the National Hockey League. Many of the current players are under 25. The mix of young talent that will only get better in the coming years combined with veteran leadership who have won Stanley Cups before has mixed well over the past few months.

There is an almost 21 year age difference between the oldest and the youngest player on the current roster. Zdeno Chara, who is 42 and Charlie McAvoy, who is 21, often play on the same defense pairing despite their age difference.
On the forward lines, Patrice Bergeron, who is 33 and David Pastrnak, who recently turned 23 play well together. Chara and Bergeron have played crucial roles in the development of their younger teammates on and off the ice.
The Bruins have work to do over the next few days in order to win the teams seventh Stanley Cup and give the city of Boston its 13th title in 17 years. The ability to win a championship with it’s current group of players, coaches and management is unique.
With free agency and the salary cap affecting every team, the next group of Boston Bruins to make it this far will likely be different.
