In the wake of the St. Louis Blues winning a thrilling double-overtime Game 7 to advance to the Western Conference Finals, nothing's sweeter than blasting the team's victory song "Gloria."
Y98, however, has taken it a step further. The St. Louis-based radio station will play "Gloria" for 24 hours straight to celebrate the Blues' victory, as promised.
And yes, it's really happening.
Blues fans have embraced the 1980s song as the team's rallying cry, playing it after every home win. And after Patrick Maroon potted the game-winning goal on the team's 54th shot of Tuesday's contest, words simply can't do justice to the immense joy that the fans must have felt hearing Laura Branigan's voice.
After a slow start the the season, the Blues played some of the best hockey in the NHL down the stretch and earned themselves a spot in the playoffs, and they certainly haven't wasted it. In fact, this is just their second Conference Finals appearance in almost two decades.
A playoff run for the St. Louis Blues that was unimaginable at best in January will continue on to the brink of the Stanley Cup Finals. https://t.co/S4ePYupATT— FOX2now (@FOX2now) May 8, 2019
The Blues now find themselves just four wins away from making the Stanley Cup Finals, a place they haven't been since the 1969-70 season.
They'll face the winner of Wednesday night's Game 7 matchup between the San Jose Sharks and the Colorado Avalanche.
