ST. LOUIS, Mo. — A playoff run for the St. Louis Blues that was unimaginable at best in January will continue on to the brink of the Stanley Cup Finals. Oakville native Pat Maroon scored the game-winning goal to propel the Blues past the Dallas Stars 2- 1 in Double Overtime Tuesday night at Enterprise Center, with St. Louis taking the best-of-seven Western Conference semifinal series 4-3.
Actor Jon Hamm was in his hometown for the big win. He tells reporters that, "I've loved St. Louis Blues hockey since I was a little kid. It is phenomenally exciting. I won't say I knew we were going to win. But, I felt we were going to win. I'm glad we won because I felt like we were the better team on the ice. Just saw a lot of the guys after the game. I think they felt the same way."
The Blues now wait to learn their Western Conference Finals opponent, with the other semifinal matchup between the San Jose Sharks and Colorado Avalanche set to be decided by a game seven on Wednesday.
