Bruins’ Carlo: St. Louis newspaper blunder ‘put a fire in us’

  • After this St. Louis newspaper accidentally ran some Stanley Cup celebrations early
  • Some fans believe the St. Louis Blues have been cursed.
  • On Sunday, just hours before a critical Game 6 in the Stanley Cup Final, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch accidentally ran ads and messages on its website that prematurely celebrated the team’s victory.
  • Unfortunately, the damage was already done.
  • In their premature celebrations, a curse was cast down on the Blues, leaving the team to lose Game 6 at home 5-1, setting up the series to return to Boston where the Bruins will have the chance to complete their comeback.
  • Bruins were well-aware of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch mistake, and defenseman Brandon Carlo says his club used it as motivation.

“We saw it,” he told WBZ after Boston forced Game 7 with a 5-1 win in Game 6 of the Cup Final. “(It) put a fire in us for sure. We don’t like that kind of stuff. We don’t want that to happen in Boston by any means. We’re focused on the next shift and going from there, not focused on winning or losing. Just focused on the next shift and working our asses off.”

  • The newspaper apologized shortly after the mistake began circulating.
  • Boston has seen this before.
  • The City of Vancouver reportedly planned a Stanley Cup victory parade before the Bruins defeated the Canucks in Game 7 back in 2011.
  • The moral of this story… Never poke the Bear !!!
