Jenna Fischer, Steven Jackson, Jayson Tatum and more celebrate the Blues' Stanley Cup win on social media.
The St. Louis Blues won their first-ever Stanley Cup with a 4–1 win over the Boston Bruins in Game 7 on Wednesday night.
Ryan O'Reilly got the Blues started with a goal with 3:13 left in the first period, becoming the first player to score in four straight Stanley Cup Final games since Wayne Gretzky in 1985.
Alex Pietrangelo added a goal in the closing seconds of the first period to give the Blues a 2–0 lead. St. Louis was outshot 11–6 in the second period but kept the Bruins off the board through the third.
Brayden Schenn knocked in the team's third goal with 8:35 left in the third period before Zach Sanford scored to make it 4–0 with 4:38 remaining in the game. Matt Grzelcyk found the back of the net for Boston with 2:10 left, ending the game 4–1.
The Blues became the first team from any of the four major North American sports leagues to win a title after placing last place overall in the league standings after one-quarter or more of the season’s games, according to the NHL.
A number of celebrities and athletes took to social media to congratulate the team's first championship in franchise history.
Here are the best reactions to the Blues' Stanley Cup win.
