Arch Madness: Blues win first Stanley Cup

Arch Madness: Blues win first Stanley Cup

The win capped a historic season for the Blues, who were playing in their first Stanley Cup Final since 1970.

The Blues crowd at Busch Stadium erupted in collective euphoria at the final whistle, with a backdrop of fireworks lighting up the night sky.

Marchand and his linemates have been a rock for the Bruins for so long, but when the dust settles and he looks back on this game in the summer, it'll undoubtedly be a tough play for the 31-year-old to come to terms with. "It just didn't go our way", said Marchand, who didn't factor offensively and had a key mistake for the B's when he left the ice for a line change just ahead of the Blues' second goal of the first period. It would take either worse play or some major injuries - not a better opponent, because one didn't exist - for the Bruins to fail to meet that expectation.

While St. Louis hoisted the Cup and Boston dealt with disappointment at the TD Garden, Detroit trolled from afar on the Internet. But despite their efforts, Game 7 belonged to Jordan Binnington. If you want to see those stats (and you probably do if you're a visitor of this site) then you can see that post here, the post you're reading now is just my annual update to the graphic, no fancy stats.

In the second period, Brayden Schenn scored to give the Blues a three-goal cushion.

Some Republicans are becoming restless with the topic, and Burr received considerable blowback from colleagues over the subpoena . Ted Cruz, said there was "no need" for the subpoena.

The Boston Bruins goalie shined throughout their entire postseason run and entered Game 7 as the favorite to win the Conn Smythe Trophy.

Matt Grzelcyk spoiled Binnington's shutout bid with two minutes left in the third period. I love every guy on this team and I'm very proud of everyone.

What do you think about the St. Louis Blues winning and the leadership of Craig Berube?

O'Reilly, 28, was in his first season with the Blues.

In this Final alone, he scored goals in four consecutive games, the first to do so since Wayne Gretzky in 1985. It could be the last one for all of us, but yeah, you know, when you're that close and it doesn't happen, it hurts.
