The St. Louis Blues beat Dallas Stars 2-1 in double overtime of game 7 of the Western Conference Semifinals.
Two kids from St. Louis played pivotal roles in the game. The Stars goalie Ben Bishop arguably played the game of his life in the town where he grew up, saving 52 of the 54 Blues shot attempts. Bishop was drafted by the Blues, playing two seasons in St. Louis before being traded.
However, it would be the St. Louis native Pat Maroon, who made the series-clinching play. About 6 minutes into the 2nd overtime, Robert Thomas bounced a shot attempt, off the post, then off the back of Bishop’s head, allowing Maroon to swoop in and score the game-winning goal, the first overtime goal of his career.
