The Boston Bruins now are facing elimination after dropping Game 5 of the Stanley Cup Final to the St. Louis Blues on Thursday night.

Head coach Bruce Cassidy said he’d rather be up 3-2, but added the Bruins will be prepared heading into St. Louis for Game 6.

Cassidy noted Boston’s power play needs to be better moving forward, among other adjustments.
