Binnington didn't have the best numbers in the playoffs, or at least not close to his otherworldly regular season, but he was the biggest reason St. Louis won Game 5 to move to the verge of winning it all and made stopped 32 of the 33 shots he faced in Game 7.

St. Louis Blues' Ryan O'Reilly skates with the Conn Smythe Trophy after the Blues' win over the Boston Bruins in Game 7 on Wednesday.

St. Louis can stop singing the blues.

Ryan O'Reilly opened the scoring for St. Louis for a fourth straight game, and with it matched a feat last accomplished by Wayne Gretzky, while defensive standout Alex Pietrangelo was responsible for the Blues' second.

It's time to play Gloria.

Bortuzzo has scored two goals in 17 games this posteason.

But one little girl who was waiting to meet Kate in the crowds, wasn't impressed by the 37-year-old's dressed-down look. Kate took it in stride and told the girls that "I came in my pants and my coat because I'm going to see some sheep".


After realizing the hiccup, the Conn Smythe victor - awarded to the playoff MVP - immediately and needlessly apologized to the Canadian broadcast team.

The 11-year-old Anderson was given a Stanley Cup Champions t-shirt and hat and was thrilled about her new swag. In the process, O'Reilly became just the third player in league history to score his team's first goal in four consecutive games.

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

Binnington came out of nowhere to lead St. Louis to the Stanley Cup.

The Blues had just one shot on goal heading into the final minutes of the first period, but they scored first when O'Reilly deflected a shot from Jay Bouwmeester into the net.

And that's not lost on Brad Marchand.
