BOSTON (CBS) – Blues goalie Jordan Binnington let in five Bruins goals before getting the hook during Saturday night’s Game 3. Despite his struggles, Binnington will be back between the pipes on Monday night.
“I always have confidence in him and he’ll start tomorrow,” St. Louis head coach Craig Berube told reporters on Sunday.
Binnington made 14 saves on 19 chances before he was yanked when the Bruins scored to take a 5-1 lead. Jake Allen took over in net and let up one goal of his own. The Bruins went on to a 7-2 victory to take a 2-1 series lead.
Binnington has shown the ability to bounce back from losses this season, going 12-2 record after a defeat during the regular season and 6-2 record after a loss in the postseason.
The Bruins and Blues play Game 4 Monday night at 8 p.m. in St. Louis before heading back to Boston for Game 5.
