Former roommate, teammate predicted Bortuzzo's goal

Beau knows.

As in Beau Bennett - a veteran of 200 NHL games with the Pittsburgh Penguins, New Jersey Devils and St. Louis Blues - who accurately predicted that Blues defenseman Robert Bortuzzo would score a big playoff goal last week.

"Bro I have a feeling you are gonna get in these next games and score a huge goal. Like massive," Bennett said in a text to Bortuzzo, his friend and former teammate.

Bennett posted a screenshot of their text conversation to his Twitter account Tuesday, one day after Bortuzzo's second-period goal against the San Jose Sharks lifted the Blues to a 4-2 victory in Game 2 and evened the best-of-seven Western Conference Final with San Jose at 1-1.

Bortuzzo and Bennett were roommates with the Pittsburgh Penguins. Bennett joined the Blues for six games during the 2017-18 season but spent 60 games with the AHL affiliate Chicago Wolves.

Now all we can think about is that climb-over-the-glass series-clinching goal celly. We'd sure love to see something like that, bro.
