The wait is over Blues fans!

On Wednesday night, St. Louis took care of business with a 4-1 win in Game 7 of the Stanley Cup Finals, capturing their first championship in franchise history at TD Garden. Despite getting outshot 33-20, the Blues were able to snag the W thanks largely in part to the stellar play of Jordan Binnington. The rookie stood on his head and would have had a shutout if not for a late Matt Grzelcyck goal with 2:10 left in regulation.

Binnington clearly had a large support system on hand, as he basically admitted to dropping $6,000 on tickets. After it was all said and done, he made it clear that he wasn’t going to let his generosity go to waste.


For the record: Binnington made a modest $650K this season but is set to become a restricted free agent this summer. After a stellar performance, it’s safe to say he should be earning quite the raise on his next deal.


While Binnington’s spirits were through the roof after the win, Bruins forward Brad Marchand was absolutely devastated. He shared some heartbreaking words after the B’s came just short in the deciding game.
