The Blues evened the Stanley Cup Final 2-2 with a 4-2 victory on Monday night that was equal parts bludgeoning and buoyant. It continued a trend for St. Louis that has spanned the postseason, which is its ability to follow losses with strong efforts. Even losses as gutting as Game 3 last Saturday.
“It’s the playoffs. You have to forget that game as quick as possible. It doesn’t matter if it’s 10-1 or 2-1. A loss is a loss. It’s just another game,” said forward Oskar Sundqvist, who returned to the Blues’ lineup after being suspended for Game 3. “You need to refocus, and that’s what we did.”
