It was a special moment for the St. Louis Blues on Tuesday, as Patrick Maroon scored the game-winning and series-winning goal for the team in double overtime to defeat the Dallas Stars in Game 7 of the Western Conference Semifinals. The moment was especially meaningful for his son, who was caught on camera showing his unconditional love.
