For the Blues, the road to the Stanley Cup Championship featured a six or seven game series in each round of the playoffs. A natural hat trick from Jaden Schwartz against the Winnipeg Jets in Game 6 led the Blues to advance to the second round. Despite facing elimination on the road in Game 6 against the Dallas Stars, the Blues took the second round to seven games; in Game 7, St. Louis-native Pat Maroon scored a goal five minutes into the second overtime period to send the team to the conference final. After a back and forth series with the San Jose Sharks, the Blues had a decisive 5-1 victory in Game 6 to send them to their first Stanley Cup Final since 1970 (in which the Bruins swept the Blues). In the Final, Ryan O’Reilly scored in four consecutive games to cement the Blues’ first Stanley Cup® win since the team joined the NHL® 52 years ago.
