Lost in the hysteria surrounding Torey Krug’s amazing hit Monday night was the equally aggressive staredown of St. Louis Blues goalie Jordan Binnington.
For those living under a hockey-less rock, Krug lit up St. Louis Blues center Robert Thomas in what was the premier highlight from the Boston Bruins’ victory in Game 1 of the Stanley Cup Final. After executing the devastating blow, Krug skated toward Binnington and stared down the rookie netminder.

If that doesn’t fire up Bruins fans, nothing will.
Boston now holds a 1-0 lead in the best-of-seven series. Game 2 is set for Wednesday night at 8 p.m. ET from TD Garden.
