Boston - May 27, 2019 - Vince Dunn is doubtful for the St. Louis Blues for Game 1 of the Stanley Cup Final against the Boston Bruins at TD Garden on Monday (8 p.m. ET; NBC, CBC, SN, TVAS).

The defenseman, who skated for the second straight day Sunday, has not played since Game 3 of the Western Conference Final against the San Jose Sharks when he was hit in the mouth by a shot from Sharks defenseman Brenden Dillon.

Dunn, who has seven points (two goals, five assists) in 16 Stanley Cup Playoff games, has been wearing a full cage in practice.

"I think yes, good chance," Blues coach Craig Berube said when asked if Dunn would play in the Final at some point. "He's close. I didn't talk to him or the trainers after practice yet, but he looked good in practice today. That was the best he's looked, which is a good sign. I'll have to check in with the trainers. He's pretty close."

Defenseman Carl Gunnarsson replaced Dunn in the St. Louis lineup for Games 4-6 against San Jose. He was plus-1 in the three games and averaged 11:47 of ice time.

Blues forward Robert Thomas, who has taken multiple maintenance days since the conference final, was a full participant at practice Saturday, but he did not come out onto the ice until the session was ending Sunday and skated on his own for the second time in three days.

Thomas, who has six points (one goal, five assists) in 19 playoff games, said he feels well and is looking forward to playing in the Cup Final as a rookie.

"It's obviously pretty special," Thomas said. "It's pretty special for me to be a part of it. A lot of the guys have been fighting for many years to get to this point. For me, it's just a blessing and such a great experience, and I can't wait for it to get started. It's been a grind the whole playoffs. We've played some big, heavy teams in [the] Winnipeg [Jets], Dallas [Stars] and San Jose."
