With his roots in St. Louis and having previously played for the Blues, Pat Maroon is now on the hunt for his fourth Stanley Cup victory.

In 2019, Maroon celebrated his first Cup victory as a member of the St. Louis Blues. He continued his winning streak by securing two more championships in 2020 and 2021 while playing for the Tampa Bay Lightning.

After winning three consecutive titles in a row, Maroon now finds himself battling with his new team, the Boston Bruins, in the second round of the Stanley Cup Playoffs.

In March, the Bruins made a strategic move by acquiring Maroon from the Minnesota Wild, indicating their clear intention to strengthen their roster for an upcoming playoff run.

Despite being plagued by injuries this year; Maroon has played in eight playoff games and has recorded two assists and two points.

After a difficult series against the Toronto Maple Leafs, the Bruins are playing the Florida Panthers in the second round. They are currently leading the series 1-0 after a game one victory in Florida, which saw them handily defeat the Panthers 5-1.

The late-season acquisition of Maroon was brilliant on Boston's part, as Maroon is a proven veteran who can assist his teammates as the playoffs continue.

Maroon’s aggressive play will be a factor in the series, as the Panthers looked almost unstoppable in their first-round matchup against the Tampa Bay Lightning.

At this point in Maroon's career, his expertise and veteran leadership are perhaps his greatest assets, but it sure helps to have a warrior on the ice who knows what it takes to win.

The determination shown by players like Pat Maroon often becomes the driving force behind a team's victory. It remains to be seen if Maroon will achieve his fourth championship victory.

The second game of the series will take place on May 8th at 7:30 p.m. ET.
