In 2011, St. Louis Cardinals pulled off one of the most unthinkable championship runs, coming in as a Wildcard and defeating all odds; this year, the St. Louis Blues hope to recreate that run, except in hockey style.

Although the Blues are a higher ranked team unlike the Cardinals, it doesn’t mean anyone would have expected for the Blues to be in the race for the Cup. In the beginning of January, The Blues sat in dead last of all hockey, being castrated out of the radar for chances of making the playoffs. However, this is when St. Louis started to play their best hockey yet and began to snap their losing ways from last. The Blues did a complete 180-degree turn, with the help of Vladimir Tarasenko getting hot for the second half of the season and swapping in rookie goalie, Jordan Binnington, to the starting set.  St. Louis went on a franchise record, 11 game win streak, and trailblazing their way to the 2nd of the central division and entered the playoffs as one of NHL’s hottest teams.

St. Louis beat out Winnipeg 4-2 in the first round, moving forward to the Dallas Stars in a 7 game, nail-biting series. After being down 3-2 in the series, The Blues came back once again this season, forcing a dramatic game 7 in St. Louis that had the country talking about. The Blues dominated play, firing 54 restless shots at Dallas goalie, Ben Bishop, but only managed to slip 1 past him through 3 periods and an additional overtime. However, all these shots only boosted up the drama for a St. Louis native, Pat Maroon, to become a hero, scoring the game winning goal and saving the day in double overtime. Sound familiar? (cough David Freese cough)

St. Louis are now set to play the San Jose Sharks tomorrow night in the Western Conference Finals, that will have all of St. Louis watching. Once again, a St. Louis team is looking to bring home another unpredicted Championship, and have “Gloria” blaring down the streets.
