WATCH: Karson Kuhlman Scores His First Stanley Cup Final Goal
Karson Kuhlman made his first Stanley Cup Final appearance in game 6 of the series between his Boston Bruins and the St. Louis Blues. With the Blues leading the series 3-2, Sunday night's game is the difference between Boson extending the series or St. Louis claiming their first ever Stanley Cup.
After being a healthy scratch through the first 5 games, Kuhlman hit the ice in St. Louis Sunday night, making it his first ever on-ice appearance in the NHL's championship series. The former UMD Bulldog didn't waste his opportunity.
Midway through the third period, Kuhlman went top shelf, sticking the puck right in the corner of the goal, over St. Louis goalie Jordan Binnington's shoulder. Kuhlman's goal would extend Boston's lead to 3-0.
Kuhlman was called up to the Bruins in February, following a stint with Boston's AHL affiliate.
The Bruins would go on to win 5-1, tying the series a 3 games each, and forcing a game 7. That championship-deciding game 7 will be on Wednesday the 12th in Boston. Game time is at 7 pm (CT), and you can watch it on NBC.
