The St. Louis Blues defeated the Boston Bruins 4-1 in Game 7 of the Stanley Cup Final on Wednesday.

The victory secured their first Stanley Cup in their 52-year history.

St. Louis won the series four games to three, following the Capitals as the second team to win a maiden title in as many years.

The Blues took a 2-0 lead at the end of the first period before adding two more in the third. Jordan Binnington starred on the night having stopped 32 of 33 shots.

Victory for 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.
