The Blues defeated the Boston Bruins 4-1 in Game 7 of the Stanley Cup Final on Wednesday night to claim the franchise's first title.

After the game, the Capitals congratulated the Blues on their victory on Twitter.

NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman presents St. Louis Blues' Ryan O'Reilly with the Conn Smythe trophy.

So much of that can be traced back to Berube's changes when he took over as interim coach for Mike Yeo in November. The Blues went over 15 minutes without a shot before O'Reilly solved the red-hot Tuukka Rask.

The St. Louis Blues are finally Stanley Cup champions.

Bortuzzo has scored two goals in 17 games this posteason.


Binnington came out of nowhere to lead St. Louis to the Stanley Cup. "We knew that", Pietrangelo said.

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

"It should be fun", Red Sox manager Alex Cora said.

And the Bruins responded, dominating for long stretches of time except in the way that mattered most. It's also a reminder that while the motivation is extremely high for the B's core group that have won before including Zdeno Chara, Patrice Bergeron, David Krejci and Brad Marchand, there also guys like Cassidy, Charlie McAvoy, David Pastrnak, Brandon Carlo and others that have never hoisted the Cup before.

Bouwmeester played in 1,184 regular-season games - the third most among active players who had not gotten their names etched on the Stanley Cup.
