BOSTON — The St. Louis Blues have life.
Carl Gunnarsson’s overtime goal lifted the Blues to a 3-2 victory in Game 2 of the Stanley Cup Final on Wednesday at TD Garden. Oftentimes with big goals comes a story from the locker room about an inspiration speech or something that fired the team up before retaking the ice.
For Gunnarsson, well, he called his shot, while relieving himself.
While the team was celebrating the win in the locker room, Blues coach Craig Berube told a story that Gunnarsson came up beside him in the john and said he needed just one more shot. Gunnarsson drilled the post in the closing minutes of the third period.
“Gunny comes up, sitting beside me having a leak, ‘All I need is one more chance,'” Berube said, in a video released on the Blues’ Twitter account.

The Blues certainly were much less leaky than the Bruins, and it seemed to be only a matter of time before they would whiz one by Tuukka Rask to even up the series. So in all, this was pretty fitting.
