St. Louis Blues win first Stanley Cup title, defeating Boston Bruins

Blues end longest wait in NHL history for Cup win

(CNN) - The St. Louis Blues won their first Stanley Cup in their 52-year history after defeating the Boston Bruins 4-1 in Game 7 of the Stanley Cup Final on Wednesday.

St. Louis took the series four games to three and is the second team in as many years to win the Stanley Cup for the first time, following the Capitals in 2017-18.

The Blues led 2-0 after the first period and added two more in the third. Goaltender Jordan Binnington stopped 32 of 33 shots.

With the win, the Blues ended the longest wait in NHL history -- 51 seasons -- for a team to win its first championship.

In January, St. Louis owned the worst record in the league.

The Blues haven't played in a Stanley Cup Final since 1970, when they also faced the Boston Bruins.

Before the game, Olympic gold-medalist gymnast Aly Raisman and New England Patriots wide receiver Julian Edelman wore Boston Red Sox star David Ortiz's jersey as they pumped up the Bruins crowd. The game took place in Boston. Ortiz was shot over the weekend in the Dominican Republic.
