years the Blues win the Cup. To the tune of “Play Gloria for me” the blues dominated hated Boston. St. louis quite happy and will go wild tonight and at parade probably on weekend.

Just one comment, the move to change coaches early (? November) in season was a gutsy call. Bringing up rookie goal tender to lead the way was also an amazing call by new coach.

Have a good day everyone.

That goalie...

Incredible. I love it when droughts get erased. Very happy for all the older Blues fans.

Live in St. Louis and they both climbed joyfully on the bandwagon this playoffs. St. Louis as a city deserved this. It has (city and county) taken quite a few hits, many self-inflicted admittedly, and it's nice to see some smiles on their citizens' faces.

The Blues historically have actually been quite a successful franchise but could never get over the hump. Winning 16 postseason games takes more than a little luck. This year, they had that. Oh, and a goalie who stood on his head. That was the key.
Thank you to the St louis Blues

How in Hell

Didn't the Con Smyth go to the goalie Binnington???? He was the difference thru the playoffs and in the SCF. IMO he was robbed. Ask any Bruin or their fans who made the difference in this series and my bet is on the rookie goalie.

Was first player since messier to have 6 straight games with at least one point in the finals. Binnington was fantastic especially last night. How bout that guy that made the Vegas bet on blues in January. Won 100k.
The Blues didn't dominate

the Bruins. Binnington did. The Bruins were all over the Blues, but ocouldn't score. It happens. That's hockey.
Really incredible

On New Years Eve, the Blues were 15-18-4. By comparison, the Devils were 15-16-7.

Yet the Devils finished the second worst record in the league and have the first pick in the draft. The Blues won the Stanley Cup and have the last pick in the round.
Yes!!! Eff Boston!!!

Davision, where are you when we need you???
Bennington was known in minors and I believe coached by current Blues

Coach ‘Bruzi. He trusted him to help turn team around, he did.
The goalie won game 7

he should have been MVP. Pretty much always how the NHL finals go. One goalie cracks one goalie steals games.
