Our city's St. Louis Blues played their first National Hockey League season in 1967. They've made it to the Stanley Cup finals several times, but have never been able to win. This might be their year, though.
- In Round 1 the Blues defeated the Winnipeg Jets four games to two
- In Round 2 the Blues defeated the Dallas Stars four games to three
- In Round 3 the Blues defeated the San Jose Sharks four games to two
Sunday is Hubby Tony's night to cook dinner, and he wanted a hockey tie-in before tonight's Game 6. Since there aren't a lot of blue foods he got creative, making some tasty Boston Baked beans (which we demolished!), and a spinach salad with blueberries and blue cheese.
Dessert was a chocolate hockey puck cake drizzled with blueberry syrup (and sherbet, just because).
It would have been nice to finish the series up tonight, but the Bruins ended up winning 5-1. Now all the excitement will be transferred to Wednesday night, when I hope the Blues will come out on top.
