BOSTON - Jordan Binnington matched the NHL rookie record for most wins in one playoff year (15) with a 38-save effort in Game 5 on Thursday night at TD Garden.

Binnington tied a mark which is held by Patrick Roy, Matt Murray, Cam Ward and Ron Hextall.

In addition, Binnington set a new NHL rookie record with his ninth road win in the Stanley Cup Playoffs, besting the previous mark set by Ron Hextall in 1987.

With the win, the Blues are now one win away from capturing their first Stanley Cup in franchise history.

"He played unbelievable in that first when we really didn't have our legs and were caught on our heels a bit," Ryan O'Reilly said. "We were able to get through when they had some Grade-A chances. He made some huge saves."

"He was excellent all game and did a great job in the first period for sure," Blues Head Coach Craig Berube said. "They came hard. We were tested in the first for sure, and 'Binner' stood tall. (He's) a big reason we won the game."

Binnington's 38-save performance Thursday is the third-most saves in regulation by a rookie goalie in the Stanley Cup Final.
