2697903, It's funny it's a tie series but there's only been one "close" game

You had the blowout in Game 3, obviously, but I think Games 1 and 4 were both not as closed as they looked on paper. Take out the early part of Game 1 and turn a post into a goal and Boston wins Game 1 easily. The sequence where St Louis put on hella pressure and drew a penalty didn't get them a goal and then they give up a shorty. If not for that sequence, they'd have cruised. What I mean to say is that in terms of controlling play, Boston controlled Game 1 more than the score suggested and St Louis did the same in Game 4. So far I've called each of the four games right in terms of a winner. Not sure I have a pick for Game 5 but I am leaning Boston. I think the winner of Game 5 will win the series, that I'll say for sure.
