St. Louis Blues ended their 51 season Stanley cup draught after defeating Boston Bruins 4-1 in game 7 of the Stanley cup final on Wednesday
With the win, The Blues ended the longest wait in NHL history, 51 seasons for a team to win its first championship.
In January, St. Louis owned the worst record in the league. The Blues haven’t played in a Stanley Cup Final since 1970 when they also faced the Boston Bruins.
The fans couldn’t stop celebrating their first Stanley Cup title. They were looking forward to this for so long, and they fully stand behind the amazing players who inspired them all year!
O’Reilly from St. Louis won the Conn Smythe trophy as the MVP of the postseason. He is the first player since Wayne Gretzky to score in four consecutive Stanley Cup final games.
