St. Louis Blues fans...it's finally happened. For the first time in the franchise's 52-year history, the Blues are Stanley Cup Champions after they defeated the Boston Bruins 4-1 in Game 7 on the road.
What a moment.
The Blues got things going early in the first period thanks to a goal from Ryan O'Reilly, as he became the first player to score a goal in four straight Stanley Cup Finals games since Wayne Gretzky in 1985.
As a result, he won the Conn Smythe Trophy for Stanley Cup Playoff MVP.
Just minutes later, Alex Pietrangelo scored an uncontested goal due to an ill-advised line change from Brad Marchand and the Bruins.
In the third period, Brayden Schenn and Zach Sanford would make the game unreachable for Boston after they each notched a goal to extend the lead to 4-0.
The Bruins put intense pressure on the Blues throughout the game, but goaltender Jordan Binnington was a thorn in their side, as he stopped 32-of-33 shots in an incredible performance for a rookie. The one goal he allowed was an absolutely perfect shot to the upper corner of the net in garbage time.
The City of St. Louis will remember this for a lifetime, and you better believe they'll be playing "Gloria" all night long.
