Stanley Cup: St. Louis Blues end long wait for first National Hockey League title

Ryan O'Reilly isn't just a Stanley Cup champion, he's a Conn Smythe victor, too.

New England Patriots wide receiver Julian Edelman and Olympic gold-medalist gymnast Aly Raisman pumped up the crowd before Game 7 of the Stanley Cup Final tonight in Boston.

Ryan O'Reilly opened the scoring with about three minutes left in the period when he cleverly re-directed a shot from the point by Jay Bouwmeester that went right through Boston goalie Tuukka Rask's legs.

St. Louis's first title comes in its return to the Stanley Cup Final after 49 seasons.

He stepped up and tried to make a play, but Jaden Schwartz made a nifty move, swerved around him, and found Alex Pietrangelo in front of the net to put St. Louis ahead, 2-0, with 7.9 seconds remaining.

The Trump team had initially tried to cover up the meeting, providing conflicting stories about its goal and what happened. Burr told The Associated Press last month that he hopes to be finished with the investigation by the end of the year.

O'Reilly won the Conn Smythe Trophy as the MVP of the postseason.

Returning to the site of their last appearance in the final, which ended when Bobby Orr sailed through the air after scoring the Cup victor, the Blues won for the third time in Boston this series and an National Hockey League record-tying 10th time in the postseason.

Louis Blues will play at least 60 minutes Wednesday night in Game 7 of the Stanley Cup Final, but recent history shows the team that scores first is going to win.

St. Louis almost added a third midway through the second period but Zdeno Chara managed to swat the puck away from the goal line after a shot from Brayden Schenn went off the crossbar and Rask's shoulder before dropping in the crease. Portable party Rob Gronkowski also made an appearance on the video board.
