Young Blues Fan Laila Anderson, Battling Rare Disease, Celebrates With Stanley Cup

The Blues were one of eight teams in the bottom of the league to have 250-to-1 odds (or worse) of winning the Cup in January.

After defeating the Boston Bruins on Wednesday night, the Blues captured their first ever Stanley Cup.

Alex Pietrangelo added a goal and an assist and Brayden Schenn and Zach Sanford also scored for St. Louis.

When the Blues won Game 7 against the Boston Bruins on Wednesday, what appeared to be an insane bet for Berry paid off to the tune of $100,000.

So if we're talking about "stealing games", you need a second hand to count the amount of games Rask stole for this Bruins team this postseason. "Unbelievable first period. His confidence, his swagger, his belief in himself - unbelievable".

O'Reilly, like all Conn Smythe winners, will have his name engraved on the trophy.

The road to the cup was certainly not easy, with the team firing its previous coach midseason in November, but when the new coach, Craig Berube, came on board, the Blues took off.

How does this affect how Rask will be viewed in Boston moving forward?

Boston broke Binnington's shutout bid when Matt Grzelcyk found the net with just over two minutes to play but it was too little, too late as the Blues goalie went on to set a rookie record with his 16th playoff win.

The 11-year-old from St. Louis has been fighting a rare, life-threatening immune disease.

It's time to play Gloria.

The 1970 loss tortured the Blues franchise for decades as it produced one of the most iconic photos in hockey history - that of Bobby Orr flying through the air with his arms raised in victory after scoring the Cup-clinching goal in overtime.

The Blues' Ryan O'Reilly scored the first goal of the night and was named the Conn Smythe Trophy victor as the Stanley Cup playoffs' Most Valuable Player. Pietrangelo's goal held up as the game victor. "We knew people didn't think we would have a chance but we believed in each other and that's all that matters".

The Bruins tried to harness all the local karma they could.

After Patriots Super Bowl MVP Julian Edelman and Olympic champion gymnast Aly Raisman - both wearing David Ortiz jerseys as the honorary flag bearers and a nod to the wounded Red Sox great - came out and fired up the crowd, Boston came charging out quickly. They even showed 2004 World Series star Curt Schilling on the Jumbotron flashing his championship ring.
