IT SOLD OUT IN 37 MINUTES EARLIER WE SAW PHOTOGRAPHER RANDY, PEOPLE GRABBING HANDFULS OF THINGS. PACKING IT UP AND BUYING IT. FANS ARE EXCITED! FANS ARE EXCITED. I SPOKE TO ONE WOMAN CHECKING OUT. SHE SAID SHE SPENT $400 AND EVERY SINGLE DOLLAR WAS WORTH IT. LET’S WALK OVER HERE SO WE CAN SEE A LITTLE BIT MORE OF HOW THE LINE IS GOING. KEEP WALKING. THERE WE GO, FANS ARE SCREAMING. IT FEELS LIKE IT’S A GAME IN HERE. THAT’S HOW EXCITING IT IS. THE LINE IS WRAPPED AROUND THE STORE TWICE. THAT’S HOW LONG THE LINE IS. THEY SAID THIS IS THE LONGEST THEY HAVE EVER SEEN IT. THIS MAY BE SOLD OUT RIGHT NOW BUT THEY ARE GOING TO GET ANOTHER SHIPMENT TOMORROW AND THE DOORS WILL OPEN AT 7 A.M. BACK TO YOU. >>JUST GETTING PILES. THEY DON’T CARE ABOUT THE SIZE.

THIS IS EVERYTHING I HAVE EVER WANTED IN THE GAME OF HOCKEY QUESTION MARK >>Reporter: WHO DID YOU PRETEND TO BE AS A FIVE-YEAR- OLD? >>I THINK GRETZKY WAS THE ONE GUY I LOVED ALL THE WAY. HE PLAYED THE GAME AND WHAT HE BROUGHT TO THE GAME. THE DIFFERENT ELEMENTS. JUST A STEP ABOVE. I REMEMBER MEETING HIM AND SCORING A LOT OF GOALS AS HIM. IT’S CRAZY TO THINK THAT I ACTUALLY WON A STANLEY CUP. >>Reporter: IRONICALLY YOU BRING UP GRETZKY. TONIGHT, DO YOU KNOW WHAT YOU DID? >>MY MOM WAS TELLING ME. I CAN’T BELIEVE THAT. BEING IN THE SAME SENTENCE AS THAT GUY >>Reporter: HE SCORED A GOAL FOR THE FIRST TIME, FOR PEOPLE WHO DON’T KNOW THIS. YOU SCORED A GOAL IN FOUR CONSECUTIVE GAMES AND THE LAST PERSON TO DO THAT IN A STANLEY CUP FINAL IS WAYNE GRETZKY. I WANT TO TALK TO YOU ABOUT YOUR GOALTENDER TONIGHT, JORDAN BINNINGTON. THE FIRST. IT LOOKED LIKE THEY WERE HITTING HIM HARD. HE WAS JUST IMPERVIOUS. >>YEAH, THAT FIRST. WE DIDN’T HAVE OUR LIKES. WE WERE CAUGHT ON HER HEELS A BIT. WATCHING. HE, SAVE AFTER SAVE. INCREDIBLE. IT’S NOT JUST THAT FIRST. ALL YEAR. HE WINS GAMES BY HIMSELF PRETTY MUCH. HELPS US FIND AN IDENTITY. HE WAS SO PHENOMENAL THIS GAME. IT WAS A CHANCE TO FINALLY GET OUR LEGS AND GET A GOAL. WE STARTED HELPING HIM OUT A LITTLE BIT MORE. BUT HE’S AN AMAZING GOALTENDER. HE WON THIS GAME TONIGHT FOR US.>>Reporter: FINAL THOUGHT, WHEN YOU HAVE A MOMENT LIKE THIS IT’S ABOUT FAMILY. MOM AND DAD, YOUR BROTHERS AND SISTERS ARE HERE. WHAT DOES IT MEAN TO HAVE THEM HERE. ESPECIALLY HER FATHER WHO HELPED YOU BECOME THE PLAYER YOU ARE? >>IT’S, IT’S JUST AS MUCH THEIR CUP AS IT IS MINE. I WOULD NOT BE HERE IF IT WASN’T FOR MY BROTHER LETTING ME COME PLAY WITH HIS BUDDIES, MY DAD STILL TRAINING WITH HIM AND REEVALUATING. THEN MY MOM, THE ATHLETE SHE IS. THE COMPETITIVENESS FROM HER. MY SISTER’S TWO ARE JUST AMAZING PEOPLE. MY WHOLE FAMILY, AND MY WIFE TOO. SHE’S INCREDIBLE. THERE’S ALWAYS PEOPLE HERE, I WOULDN’T BE HERE IF IT WASN’T FOR THEM. I CAN’T WAIT TO SHARE THIS WITH THEM. >>CONGRATULATIONS RYAN. THAT IS RYAN O’REILLY. SEND IT TO MY COLLEAGUE NOW. AHMAD HICKS. TAKE IT AWAY! >>Reporter: THANKS, I AM STANDING NEXT TO JOEL EDMUNDSON. YOU ARE BACK TONIGHT. TALK ABOUT THE MENTALITY AND WHY DOES IT MATTER WHO PLAYS AND WHAT GAME? >>IT DOESN’T MATTER. WE ARE A DEEP TEAM. I THINK THAT’S WHAT GOT US TO WHERE WE ARE RIGHT NOW. THERE’S PROBABLY 30 OF US TO GET EVERYONE. >>Reporter: TELL PEOPLE AT HOME WHAT DON’T KNOW WHAT IT TOOK TO GET THE STANLEY CUP. YOU GUYS WENT THROUGH THE PAIN AND ADVERSITY. TELL ME WHAT THEY DESCRIBED TO GET TO THIS POINT. >>THERE’S GUYS PLAYING WITH BROKEN TEETH. EVERYONE IS BANGED UP RIGHT NOW. THIS FEELING IS OBVIOUSLY, I CAN’T EVEN PUT INTO WORDS. SPECIAL. IT’S A SPECIAL GROUP. I CAN’T WAIT TO CELEBRATE WITH THE BLUES FANS BACK IN ST. LOUIS. >>Reporter: YOU SAID THIS MOMENT IS SPECIAL. I’M SURE YOU DREAMED OF WINNING GAME SEVEN ALL YOUR LIFE. DOES THIS COMPARE? >>THIS IS WAY BETTER THAN GROWING UP PLAYING STREET HOCKEY WITH MY BROTHER AND FRIENDS. YOU ALWAYS PLAY GAME SEVEN STANLEY CUP. TO ACTUALLY COME THROUGH, IT’S CRAZY. >>Reporter: WHEN YOU GET BACK TO ST. LOUIS AND 100,000 FANS ARE WAITING FOR YOU TO MARCH DOWN MARKET STREET, WHAT IS THAT GOING TO FEEL LIKE TO SEE THE WHOLE CITY BEHIND YOU GUYS QUESTION MARK >>I CAN’T WAIT TO SHARE IT WITH THEM. THEY’VE BEEN WITH US THE WHOLE YEAR. WE STARTED OFF TERRIBLE. WE TURNED IT AROUND. THEY WERE WITH US THE WHOLE TIME. SO I’VE GOT TO THINK THE FANS AND WE JUST CAN’T WAIT TO CELEBRATE. >>Reporter: NOW YOU ARE A STANLEY CUP CHAMPION. THAT IS JOEL EDMUNDSON. LET’S TOSS IT BACK TO MIKE AND ANNE IN THE STUDIO. >>HE WASN’T SURE IF HE WAS GOING TO PLAY BUT NOW HIS NAME IS ON THE STANLEY CUP. HE PLAYED A KEY ROLE TONIGHT. >>THE PAIN FANS ARE SO PUMPED UP ABOUT THIS. NOW HE’S OUT IN THE STREETS AFTER BEING ABOUT WATCH PARTY. CHRIS, WHAT IS UP? >>Reporter: WE ARE IN THE CONCOURSE OF ENTERPRISE CENTER. THEY KICKED EVERYONE OUT OF THE ARENA BUT THE CONCOURSE IS LIKE EVERYBODY TO MY LEFT. LOOK AT THIS CROWD. EVERYBODY’S EXCITED. EVERYBODY’S JUST THRILLED FOR THE BLUES. [ CHEERS AND APPLAUSE ] THESE GUYS HAVE GOT THE LATEST CHAMPIONSHIP THERE. HOW DOES IT FEEL TO WHERE HE CHAMPIONSHIP HAT BUDDY? >>IT’S AWESOME TO BE HERE. >>Reporter: DOESN’T FEEL REAL YET? >>I DON’T THINK IT WILL EVER BE. >>Reporter: ARE YOU GUYS GOING TO THE PARADE? >>RIGHT NOW IT DOESN’T SEEM REAL BUT TOMORROW MORNING YOU WAKE UP, IT’S REAL! >>Reporter: IT’S REAL! THIS CROWD COULD NOT BE MORE THRILLED. AS YOU CAN SEE SOME HAVE BEEN WAITING 52 YEARS SOME HAVE BEEN WAITING A LITTLE LESS THAN THAT BUT EITHER WAY THEY’RE EXCITED. THEY’VE GOT CHAMPIONSHIP GEAR AND THEY’VE GOT THE CUP. >>WHAT WAS IT LIKE INSIDE THE ENTERPRISE CENTER TONIGHT? OBVIOUSLY, HE LEFT, OKAY. >>WHAT ABOUT THE KID WITH THE DARK HAIR. HE WAS AWESOME, EXCITED. >>YOU WAKE UP TOMORROW AND IT’S REAL! LET’S GO BACK TO BOSTON TO CHECK IN WITH FRANK CUSUMANO WITH ANOTHER SPECIAL GUEST. >>Reporter: THANK YOU VERY MUCH. THE OWNER. TOM STILLMAN, WHAT DOES THIS MEAN TO YOU YOUNG MAN? >>I DON’T THINK I CAN PUT IT INTO WORDS. THE THING THAT STICKS OUT IS ST. LOUIS HAS BEEN BEHIND US FOR 50 YEARS. UPS AND DOWNS. HOPING AND PRAYING FOR THIS. NOW ST. LOUIS HAS A CUP. I’M REALLY HAPPY FOR ALL THE FANS THAT SUPPORTED THE TEAM AND THE FRANCHISE OVER THE YEARS. >>Reporter: YOU DID IT IN SUCH SWASHBUCKLING STYLE. LAST OF COURSE IN JANUARY AND YOU WERE HONEST THAT IF HE DIDN’T TURN AROUND, CHANGES WOULD HAVE HAD TO OF BEEN MADE WITH SOME VETERAN PLAYERS. >>YEAH, NO. WE FELT LIKE THE DECISIONS HAD BEEN MADE. DOUG AND HIS GROUP BUILT A TEAM TO LAST SEVERAL YEARS THAT WAS STRONG. THEY MADE GOOD MOVES IN THE SUMMER. STRONG PLAYERS. PLAYERS OF CHARACTER. SO LET’S GIVE IT SOME TIME. SEE IF THEY COME AROUND. LUCKILY THEY DID. >>Reporter: THEN JORDAN BINNINGTON SHOWS UP. >>THEN JORDAN BINNINGTON SHOWS UP. WHO COULD WRITE A STORY LIKE THIS? WHO COULD BE AS COOL AS HE IS UNDER PRESSURE? WITH HIS EXPERIENCE LEVEL. IT’S REALLY IMPRESSIVE. >>Reporter: WE DIDN’T HAVE A CAMERA ON YOU DURING THE GAME. A LOT OF TIMES YOU ARE PASSIONATE. I WOULDN’T WANT TO SIT NEXT TO YOU BECAUSE YOU ARE ALWAYS KNOCKING PEOPLE DOWN WITH THE FISTS, YOU ARE SO EXCITED. WHAT ABOUT THE FINAL MOMENTS IN THIS ONE. TEARS OR WHAT WAS IT LIKE QUESTION MARK >>I DID. THE WHOLE FAMILY WAS RIGHT THERE WITH ME AND WE HAD SEVERAL MASS HUGS AMONG US. THERE WERE SOME TEARS. >>Reporter: DO YOU HAVE ANY IDEA WHAT YOU HAVE DONE FOR THIS CITY? DO YOU HAVE ANY IDEA WHAT THIS MEANS? >>I DON’T SEE IT ANY OTHER WAY. SEVERAL HUNDRED PEOPLE IN THE ORGANIZATION ALL PULLING IN ONE DIRECTION. THAT ARE GETTING THIS DONE. IT GOES BEYOND THAT, FANS AND SPONSORS AND OTHER SUPPORTERS WHO HAVE BEEN THERE SUPPORTING. SO IT’S A LOT OF PEOPLE WHO ARE MAKING THIS HAPPEN. >>Reporter: TOM, CONGRATULATIONS. ALL RIGHT. I WANT TO SAY THIS TOO. BEFORE GAME FIVE IN THE STANDS. TOM STILLMAN WAS SHAKING HANDS WITH FANS. HE JUST WANTED TO MEET PEOPLE HE WANTED TO WELCOME THEM TO THE ENTERPRISE CENTER. THAT’S WHAT KIND OF OWNER HE IS. ALL RIGHT, LET’S SEND IT BACK NOW TO THE STUDIO WITH ANNE AND MIKE. >>THAT SO TOM, TAKING IT ALL IN STRIDE. >>I TALKED TO HIM BEFORE GAME ONE. HE WAS NERVOUS AND EXCITED. WE TALKED ABOUT THE FACT THAT THE BLUES WERE THE WORST TEAM IN THE LEAGUE IN EARLY JANUARY. I SAID WERE YOU THINKING ABOUT MAKING SOME MOVES QUESTION MARK HE SAID IF IT CONTINUED UP UNTIL THE TRADE. MAYBE WE WOULD HAVE MADE SOME MOVES. BUT WE FELT LIKE HE SAID TO FRANK. SO MOVES IN THE SUMMER THAT CAUGHT UP TO THE BLUES AND PLAYED WELL. HERE THEY ARE, STANLEY CUP. >>HE’S GOING TO WAKE UP IN THE MORNING AND REALIZE IT’S REAL! >>LET’S GET DOWN TO MORGAN YOUNG DOWNTOWN. CAN YOU HEAR US, I KNOW IT IS LOUD. >>Reporter: ANNE AND MIKE WE ARE HERE. TAKE A LOOK AT WHAT IS OUTSIDE. IT SPEAKS FOR ITSELF. BLUES FANS ARE OUT HERE AND OF COURSE A LOT OF THESE GUYS WERE INSIDE. IT WAS JUST SECONDS, AT ONE POINT THEY WEREN’T LETTING PEOPLE IN. THERE WERE SO MANY PEOPLE INSIDE. THEY HAD LET PEOPLE GET OUT. THERE ISN’T A WORD THAT I CAN PICK THAT REALLY DESCRIBES THE ENERGY THAT WAS INSIDE OF ALL PARK VILLAGE EACH TIME A GOAL IS SCORED. WHEN THE FINAL GOAL WAS SCORED WHEN THE CLOCK RAN OUT IT WAS ABSOLUTELY AMAZING. THE ENERGY, I PUT ON TWITTER I CANNOT GET A WORD FOR IT. AS YOU CAN SEE, THE PARTY IS STILL GOING ON. PEOPLE ARE COMING IN SAYING THEY’RE GOING TO PARTY ALL NIGHT LONG UNTIL BALLPARK VILLAGE KICKS THEM OUT. I DON’T KNOW WHEN THAT WILL BE. BUT SO MUCH ENERGY, SO EXCITING HERE. WE ARE GOING TO SEND IT BACK TO YOU GUYS. BUT TAKE A LOOK AT BALLPARK VILLAGE GUYS. IT SPEAKS FOR ITSELF. >>NOT EVEN A 10th OF THIS. THAT’S LIKE THE STREET OUTSIDE OF IT. >>I HAVE A FEELING PEOPLE ARE GOING TO BE PARTYING ALL NIGHT LONG. YES. IF YOU ARE AN EMPLOYER, PLEASE BE KIND TO YOUR EMPLOYEES WERE GOING TO BE UP ALL NIGHT. LET’S GO BACK TO TD GARDEN IN BOSTON TO FRANK CUSUMANO. >>Reporter: ANNE AND MIKE HAS A STATUE OUT FRONT. AL, WHAT DOES THIS ONE MEAN TO YOU? >>IT SO SPECIAL. IT ALMOST DOESN’T SEEM REAL TO BE HONEST WITH YOU FRANK. TO THINK OVER THE YEARS THE UPS AND DOWNS WE HAD IN THE ORGANIZATION AND SOME WE HAVE HAD IN THE PLAYOFFS. TO SEE THE GROUP OF GUYS COME FOR WHERE THEY WERE IN JANUARY AND SCRATCH AND CLAW AND FIGHT TO GET IN THE PLAYOFFS. YOU KNOW, THERE WAS SOMETHING SPECIAL THERE. TO COME BACK FROM WHERE THEY WERE AND PLAYING, THE WORK THAT THEY PUT IN. THE COACHING STAFF. THERE’S NOT A GROUP OF GUYS THAT DESERVE IT MORE THAN THEY DO. >>Reporter: YOU WERE ON SOME SPECTACULAR TEAMS. THE BEST TEAM IN HOCKEY. ONE REGULAR SEASON. UNBELIEVABLE NAMES ON THE TEAM. YOU JUST CAME UP SHORT. A LOT OF TIMES YOU WERE UNLUCKY WITH GOALTENDING. >>THIS TEAM HERE THEY WERE SO RESILIENT. THEY DIDN’T GIVE UP. THEY CAME BACK STRONGER EVERY TIME. LIKE I SAID. THEY COULDN’T BE MORE HAPPY FOR A CITY, FOR A GROUP OF LOYAL FANS. IN ST. LOUIS THAT DESERVE THIS NOW FOR WAITING FOR 52 YEARS. I CAN’T IMAGINE WHAT IT’S LIKE THAT FOR RIGHT NOW. YOU KNOW, WHEN WE GET BACK THERE WE ARE GOING TO HELP CELEBRATE. >>Reporter: THIS MAN HAD THE MOST DEADLY SHOT IN THE NHL FOR A DECADE. WHAT WOULD YOU HAVE DONE IF YOU ARE FACING JORDAN BINNINGTON WITH YOUR WEAPON? >>PROBABLY WOULDN’T HAVE BEAT HIM. HE WAS SPECTACULAR IN THE FIRST. THERE AND KEPT US IN THE GAME. HE GAVE BIG GUYS A CHANCE TO GET THERE LEGS UNDERNEATH THEM. HE TOLD ME BACK IN JANUARY THAT HE WAS GOING TO BE PART OF THE SOLUTION THERE. I TOLD HIM AFTER THE GAME. YEAH. IT’S A GREAT LITTLE STORY FOR ANOTHER DAY. >>Reporter: WE’VE GOT TIME, GO AHEAD. >>IT WAS ONE WHERE DOUG WAS AWAY AND I NEEDED TO GIVE HIM THE NEWS THAT WE WANTED TO GET SOME NAMES IN THE MINORS. HE WAS GOING TO START ON A ROTOR. HE WAS AROUND FOR ABOUT THREE WEEKS. AND HE DIDN’T GET A CHANCE TO PLAY. BUT HE WANTED SOME GAMES AND BEFORE HE GOT HIS FIRST START IN THE NATIONAL HOCKEY LEAGUE. I WENT TO HIM AND TOLD HIM THE PLANE THAT HE WAS GOING TO GO DOWN AND PLAY TWO OUT OF THREE ON THE WEEKEND. MEET THE TEAM. START THERE. HE WAS A LITTLE RELUCTANT, HE DIDN’T WANT TO TAKE THE NEWS TOO LIGHTLY. HE WANTED TO STAY IN ST. LOUIS. HE SAYS I AM PART OF THE SOLUTION HERE. REGARDLESS OF WHAT POSITION YOU WERE GOING TO PLAY. WHEN YOU ARE GOING TO GET A START. YOU’RE GOING TO WANT TO GET SOME TIME IN, GET SOME SHOTS. AND I TOLD HIM AFTER THE GAME. YOU WEREN’T LYING TO ME, YOU ARE PART OF THE SOLUTION. >>Reporter: L, CONGRATULATIONS. I FEEL GREAT FOR THE TEAM AND THE ORGANIZATION. FOR GUYS LIKE YOU AND BOB AND IT SO SPECIAL. >>THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN THE CITY, THE FANS, AND THE PLAYERS. DOESN’T MATTER IF YOU PLAYED FIVE GAMES ARE 500 GAMES. ONCE YOU THROW ON THE BLUE NOTE, YOU ARE ABLE FOREVER. >>Reporter: THAT IS THE GREAT AL McINNIS. BACK TO THE STUDIO. >>WHEN YOU THINK ABOUT JORDAN BINNINGTON IT IS KIND OF A KURT WARNER KIND OF STORY. HE COMES OUT OF NOWHERE, NO ONE EVEN THOUGHT THAT HE WOULD PLAY THE SEASON AND HE WAS REALLY THE REASON THE BLUES STARTED PERKING UP A LITTLE BIT. STARTING TO PLAY WELL. HE WENT ON AT 11 GAME WINNING STREET AND JORDAN BINNINGTON WAS UNBELIEVABLE. A HUGE REASON WHY THE BLUES ARE STANLEY CUP CHAMPIONS. I STILL CAN’T BELIEVE IT. >>IN THE FIRST. THEY NEEDED HIM. HE WAS SAVING THE DAY. >>YES THEY DID. LET’S GO BACK TO CASEY NOLEN ON THE STREETS OF DOWNTOWN ST. LOUIS. >>Reporter: THE ENERGY IS BUILDING. THE PARTY IS NOT GOING ANYWHERE SO FAR. THIS IS ONE OF THE GUYS HERE. HE’S GOT THE GEAR. BLUES! YOU WERE IN THE ENTERPRISE CENTER? >>I WAS THERE THE WHOLE GAME. >>Reporter: DON’T LOOK NOW, THERE’S A PARTY BEHIND YOU. [ CHEERS AND APPLAUSE ] SO I CAN TELL YOU, THAT’S WHAT HAPPENS ANYTIME YOU TURN THE CAMERA ON. SO FAR EVERYBODY IS GETTING ALONG. EVERYBODY IS PRETTY PROUD OF THEIR CITY. EVERYBODY IS PRETTY PSYCHED ABOUT THIS ONCE-IN-A-LIFETIME ACCOMPLISHMENT AND IT’S A CONTROLLED OUT OF CONTROL SO FAR. IF YOU HEARD US EARLIER IT’S EMOTIONAL TOO. ACROSS GENERATIONS. WE’VE HEARD FROM PEOPLE FROM YOUNG KIDS SAW THEIR FIRST HOCKEY GAME EVER AT A WATCH PARTY TONIGHT. THEY WERE EMOTIONAL. WE SAW SOME DECADES LONG FANS. OBVIOUSLY THIS WAS, MEANING A LOT TO THEM AS WELL. THE COMMON DENOMINATOR WE HAVE SEEN BESIDES THE LET’S GO BLUES HORN. IS THAT THIS IS EMOTIONAL. AND EXCITING. AND BUILDING. AND SO FAR PEOPLE ARE BEHAVING. AND HIGH-FIVING. THAT WAS ABOUT HI5. I TRUST THESE PEOPLE. WITH MY LIFE. AND MY CAREER. I’M GETTING OUT. I’M GOING THIS WAY. SO, LET’S SEND IT OVER TO CHRIS DAVIS WHERE I AM SURE THINGS ARE STILL GOING STRONG AT THE ENTERPRISE CENTER. CHRIS DAVIS. >>Reporter: WE ARE INSIDE THE OFFICIAL ENTERPRISE STORE WHERE IT IS JUST ALL HANDS ON DECK GETTING AS MUCH GEAR AS YOU CAN INSIDE. AND THIS CROWD IS STILL PUMPED UP AFTER THIS WIN. TAKE A LOOK AT ALL THE SWAG. WE HAVE FORMER MANAGER IN THE CROWD. SHE’S WAVING RIGHT THERE. I WANT TO SHOW LITTLE BIT OF THE SWAG THAT YOU CAN GET HERE IN THE STORE. WE’VE GOT HATS. WE’VE GOT HOODIES. LET’S GO THIS WAY. WE GOT FLAGS. WE’VE GOT TOWELS. WE’VE GOT SHIRTS. WE’VE GOT EVERYTHING. WE’VE GOT EVERYTHING. HERE’S THE OTHER THING. WE’VE GOT TOWELS. WE’VE GOT LICENSE PLATES. EVERYTHING THAT YOU COULD POSSIBLY THINK OF THE THIS CHAMPIONS ON THE TWO. THEY’RE READY TO ROLL. READY FOR A WIN TONIGHT. THIS LINE CONTINUES AND ALL THE WAY DOWN THIS WAY. HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN STANDING IN LINE? >>A HALF AN HOUR. >>Reporter: I’M SURE IT’S WORTH IT, RIGHT? WHAT’S GOING TO BE IN YOUR SHOPPING CART? >>RIGHT NOW I’VE GOT THE POT, SOME PENS. THE GIRL FRIEND IS ON THE OTHER SIDE GETTING SOME STUFF. >>THE EMOTIONS AND EVERYTHING. I DON’T KNOW WHAT TO SAY. >>Reporter: I THINK THAT’S BEEN THE COMMON ANSWER. WHAT DO YOU SAY AFTER THIS LONG OF A WAIT. >>ABSOLUTELY, ABSOLUTELY. IT IS JUST INCREDIBLE, INCREDIBLE INSIDE THE STORE. HUNDREDS OF PEOPLE EITHER IN LINE OR ALREADY HERE IN THE STORE. THEY ARE ALL EXCITED, THEY’RE GOING TO TAKE THEIR GEAR OUTSIDE INTO, INTO OUT INTO THE STREETS. GOING TO WEAR THIS TO THE PARADE PROBABLY TWO. MIKE AND ANNE , DO WE NEED TO PICK YOU UP ANYTHING WHILE WE ARE IN HERE? >>I WOULD LIKE A HAT PLEASE. I’VE GOT A BIG MELON SO I NEEDED TO BE 70 THREE FOURTHS. SHE’S GOT A GREAT HAT RIGHT THERE. >>YOU ASKED. ALL RIGHT, THANKS VERY MUCH CHRIS PAID LET’S GO BACK TO TD GARDEN AND FRANK CUSUMANO AND RENE KNOTT AND AHMAD HICKS ALTOGETHER. >>Reporter: OUR GROUP ALTOGETHER. MR. KNOTT COMES BACK TO SPORTS WHEN THEY NEED HIM. >>Reporter: TIMING IS EVERYTHING WENT WHERE COVERING THE TEAM. >>Reporter: WHAT DOES THIS ONE MEAN TO YOU? >>Reporter: I TOLD DOUG ARMSTRONG WHEN I WAS IN PYEONGCHANG AND WATCHED THE WOMEN WIN THE GOLD MEDAL AGAINST CANADA. IT WAS THE GREATEST FEELING IS AN AMERICAN IN SPORTS. TONIGHT, WATCHING THE BLUES WHEN THE CUT. GREATEST FEELING AS SOMEONE OF ST. LOUIS. TO SEE WHAT THE CITY HAS DONE FOR ITSELF. ALL THE PEOPLE. I WAS TELLING CAM EARLIER THAT I CRIED. REALIZING WHAT THEY HAD GONE THROUGH. FOR ME IT’S A VERY SPECIAL AND VERY EMOTIONAL NIGHT. >>Reporter: WOULD YOU CONSIDER GOING BACK TO SPORTS? >>Reporter: I LOVE MY MORNING SHOW. I LOVE THEM SO MUCH I WILL BE SEEING THEM IN ABOUT FOUR HOURS. >>Reporter: THINK USURPING THANK YOU FOR BEING PART OF THE COVERAGE. MOST OF US HAVE BEEN COVERING FOR 20 YEARS. SHE IS HERE FOR NINE MONTHS. AHMAD HICKS AND HE COVERS A STANLEY CUP. PUT INTO WORDS WHAT THIS MEANS FOR YOU. >>Reporter: IT’S GREAT. THE CARDINALS WENT ALL THE TIME. BUT TO SEE THE BLUES AND THE WHOLE CITY RALLY BEHIND THE TEAM. MY PARENTS, THEY HAVE NEVER WATCHED HOCKEY BEFORE THE SEASON. BASKETBALL, FOOTBALL FANS. THEY WERE GLUED TONIGHT TEXTING ME THE WHOLE SERIES. MY ENTIRE FAMILY, FRIENDS, EVERYBODY IS A BLUES FAN NOW. I THINK THAT’S THE BEST FEELING EVER. >>Reporter: YOU DID A GREAT JOB COVERING THE SEASON ALL SEASON LONG. I HAVE A FINAL THOUGHT. I LOVE THE CARDINALS AND THEY WILL NEVER BE REPLACED. BUT I HAVE BEEN ALIVE FOR FIVE CARDINAL WORLD CHAMPIONSHIPS. WHEN YOU GET USED TO SOMETHING IT’S NOT QUITE A SPECIAL EACH TIME. THEN WE SAW THE RAMS COME IN. WE WERE ALL SWEPT UP IN THE 1999 BUT THEY LEFT US. SO IT WILL ALWAYS LEAVE KIND OF A SOUR TASTE IN MY MOUTH. EVEN THOUGH 99 WAS SPECIAL. THIS IS 52 YEARS. THIS IS THE BEST SPORT STORY I HAVE EVER COVERED. IT REALLY IS. BECAUSE YOU KNOW FROM YOUR YEAR HERE, HOCKEY PEOPLE ARE DIFFERENT THAN MOST. THEY’RE THE FINEST, PROFESSIONAL ATHLETES, THERE THE FINEST EXECUTIVES. A LOT OF THEM COME FROM SMALL CANADIAN FARM TOWNS AND THEY APPRECIATE WHAT THEY GOT. AND THEY TREAT PEOPLE WITH DIGNITY ALL THE TIME. THAT’S WHY IT SOMETHING ELSE. >>Reporter: SOME OF THE MOST LOYAL FANS. THE CITY HAS EVER SEEN. FOR THEM TO STICK WITH THE TEAM SEASON IN AND SEASON OUT HOPING THIS YEAR WOULD BE THE YEAR. YOU KNOW IT FOLKS, THIS YEAR, EIGHT IS YOUR YEAR. CONGRATULATIONS. >>Reporter: EXCITED TO SEE THEM IN ST. LOUIS SO THEY CAN CELEBRATE WITH THEM. >>Reporter: LATER TONIGHT. BY THE WAY, WE ARE ALL GOING TO BE WORKING THE PARADE I’M SURE. I WANT TO THANK OUR PHOTOGRAPHER TONIGHT TOM, TONY, AND RICK MEYER WHO HAS BEEN WITH YOUR TWO. THAT WILL DO IT. WE HAVE BECOME STANLEY CUP CHAMPIONS. BACK TO YOU. >>THEY MAKE A GOOD POINT ABOUT THE PLAYERS IN THE BLUES FANS. THEY HAVE BEEN LOYAL THROUGHOUT THE HEART ACHES AND HEARTBREAKS, THEY STUCK WITH THE TEAM. EVEN WHEN THEY WERE IN LAST PLACE THIS YEAR AND THEY WERE NOT PLAYING ANYWHERE NEAR AS GOOD AS THEY WERE SUPPOSED TO. THERE’S SOMETHING ABOUT A BLUES HOCKEY FAN THAT MAKES THEM VERY SPECIAL AND IT’S SO NICE. GENERATIONS OF BLUES FANS CAN CELEBRATE TONIGHT. >>IT WAS REALLY SWEET TO LISTEN TO FRANK SAY THAT. HE WAS GETTING MISTY. I WAS A REALLY NICE MOMENT. WE SAW JUSTINA AT THE EXPORTING GOODS. THEY HAVE BEEN WORKING HARD. TRYING TO PUMP OUT SOME NEW GEAR. WE HAVE JENNA BARNES AT PRODUCTION. >>Reporter: I AM TOLD WE ARE GETTING THIS DESIGN. AT THE PARADE. THIS IS SANTA’S WORKSHOP. THEY’RE SO BUSY HERE. PUMPING OUT THESE T-SHIRTS, ACTUALLY STARTED A LITTLE EARLY WHEN THE BLUES MADE IT 4-0. THEY ARE PRINTING THEM HERE. THEY’RE BRINGING THEM OVER HERE TO DRY. THEN THEY CAN PACK THEM IN BOXES AND SHIP THEM OUT TONIGHT. I AM TOLD THAT THE DEMAND IS SO HIGH THAT INCREASED THE NUMBERS LAST MINUTE. AT FIRST IT WAS JUST 10,000, NOW THEY’RE TRYING TO MAKE 22,000 OF THESE T-SHIRTS TONIGHT. THEY’RE GOING TO TRY TO MAKE 40,000 BY THE WEEKEND. HERE’S WHERE YOU CAN GET THEM. THEY’RE GOING TO BE SHIPPED IN A TRACTOR-TRAILER TONIGHT TO SAM’S, WALMART, TARGET, AND DICK’S SPORTING GOODS. THE PEOPLE WORKING HERE HAVE A LONG NIGHT AHEAD OF THEM BUT THEY DON’T MIND IT ONE BIT. >>THANK YOU. 40,000 OF THOSE BY THE WEEKEND. AND BEFORE THE PARADE. >>THERE WERE MORE THAN 40,000 PEOPLE DOWNTOWN TONIGHT. >>ENTERPRISE AND BUSH. NOT EVEN THE BALLPARK VILLAGE. >>THEY MAY NEED EVEN MORE THAN 40,000. >>SOMEBODY HAS GOT TO GET ON IT. LET’S GET BACK TO CASEY NOLEN PLAYING A CAT AND MOUSE GAME WITH SOME CONTROLLED CHAOS. THANK YOU. >>Reporter: I WANT TO GET TO THE STORY FAST BEFORE WE HIT MOB. THIS IS ROB. A WIDE RANGE OF EMOTIONS OF WHAT WE HAVE BEEN TALKING ABOUT. SILVER FOR SILVER IS WHAT YOU TOLD ME. FIRST WHEN YOU SAW YOUR SINGLES BLUES WASTE THE CUP, HOW ARE YOU FEELING? >>TRYING NOT TO CROWD. FIGHTING BACK TEARS NOW. I ALMOST FELL TO THE GROUND. >>Reporter: THEN YOU TOLD ME THAT YOU ARE WALKING DOWN CLARK STREET HIGH-FIVING SO MUCH. THEN WHAT HAPPENED? >>WALKING DOWN CLARK STREET. WALKING DOWN CLARK STREET. PEOPLE KNEW ME FOR THE LEDERHOSEN FOR THE TO WATCH PARTIES GOING ON BETWEEN ENTERPRISE AND BUSH I MISSED OUT ON THE ENTERPRISE PARTY SO I GOT TO BUSCH STADIUM. I SAW THE CAMERA. AND I WANTED MY BROTHERS AT ENTERPRISE AND I WANTED TO SOMEHOW BE PART OF MY BROTHERS EXPERIENCE AT THE ENTERPRISE. >>Reporter: GET TO THE HIGH- FIVING PART. >>EVERYBODY AS I WAS WALKING DOWN CLARK WANTED TO HIGH-FIVE ME AS THE LEDERHOSEN GUY. AS ALL THE HIGH FIVES WERE HAPPENING I LOST MY WEDDING RING WHICH IS AS I CALL IT, I GAVE SILVER FOR SILVER. THAT’S WHAT IT IS, THAT’S WHAT IT IS. >>Reporter: YOU LOST YOUR WEDDING RING HIGH-FIVING? >>IT’S ONE-OF-A-KIND. >>Reporter: NOT THAT THERE’S ANYTHING WRONG WITH THAT. >>IT’S GONE. >>Reporter: WHAT DID YOUR WIFE SAY? >>SURPRISINGLY NOTHING. I CAN SEE SOME ANGER AND SADNESS BUT SHE UNDERSTANDS. I THINK SHE’S ALSO WILLING TO ACCEPT SILVER FOR SILVER. >>Reporter: THE CELEBRATION CONTINUES. WHO KNOWS, MAYBE SOMEBODY WILL SEE THE STORY. MIKE AND ANNE. PERHAPS FIND HIS WEDDING RING. IT SHOWS YOU WHAT BLUES FANS ARE WILLING TO GIVE UP FOR THE STANLEY CUP. >>WHAT A MIX OF EMOTIONS. >>I KNOW YOU ARE STILL A SINGLE GUY BUT USUALLY WHEN THE WIFE SAYS NOTHING, NOT A GOOD SIGN. NOT A GOOD SIGN. ALL RIGHT. HE CAN’T HEAR ME I DON’T THINK. WE WILL CHECK BACK IN. >>WE ARE GOING TO TAKE A BREAK. WE WILL COME BACK WITH MORE OF OUR BLUES POST GAME COVERAGE. I DON’T KNOW IF WE MENTIONED THIS. THE BLUES ARE THE STANLEY CUP CHAMPIONS. WE WILL BE RIGHT BACK. ♪ ♪ I’M CONFIDENT THAT NO ONE HAS LEFT ST. LOUIS OR DOWNTOWN. LISTEN TO THE CROWD. [ CHEERS AND APPLAUSE ] I’M CONFIDENT THEY ARE GOING TO BE HERE UNTIL THE PARADE. THEY’RE NEVER GOING TO ACTUALLY LEAVE. IT’S ABSOLUTELY INSANE OUT HERE. RIGHT OUTSIDE OF ENTERPRISE.

THIS SHOWS YOU HOW EXCITED PEOPLE ARE. HOW MUCH THEY WANTED TO COME ENJOY THE ATMOSPHERE HERE. BALLPARK VILLAGE. I HAVE A HARD TIME PUTTING INTO WORDS WHAT THE ENERGY WAS LIKE DURING THE GAME. EACH TIME A GOAL WAS SCORED AND JORDAN BINNINGTON BLOCKS. PEOPLE SAY THEY’RE GOING TO BE PARTYING ALL NIGHT LONG. BY THE LOOKS OF IT WE DEFINITELY BELIEVE THEM. WE’RE GOING TO SEND IT BACK TO YOU GUYS IN THE STUDIO. >>STAY SAFE OUT THERE. YOU HAVE TO BE CAREFUL OF. THINGS CAN GET A LITTLE DICEY SOMETIMES.

IT’S A BIG PARTY OVER HERE. THINGS ARE A LITTLE BIT CRAZY. I WANT TO TELL YOU EVERYONE HERE AT CLARK SO SO HAPPY FOR THIS MOMENT. THEY HAVE BEEN WAITING A VERY VERY LONG TIME FOR IT. SOME PEOPLE THOUGHT THIS DAY WOULD NEVER HAPPEN. TOGETHER TONIGHT THERE ARE ONLY TWO POPULAR SPOTS. THAT WOULD BE THE BAR AND AT OUR FRIEND THE JUKEBOX. TAKE A QUICK GUESS ON WHAT EVERYBODY HAS BEEN PLAYING TONIGHT. AT LAST COUNT I WANT TO SAY THIS IS GLORIA SIX, SEVEN, EIGHT, NINE, TIMES. WE’VE HEARD COUNTRY ROAD. WE ARE THE CHAMPIONS. EVERYBODY’S GOT THEIR FAVORITE. WHAT’S YOUR FAVORITE? >>GLORIA BABY. GLORIA. >>Reporter: WHO IS THE BEST AT SINGING GLORIA? LET’S GO BLUES! THERE YOU GUYS GO.

I DON’T THINK SO. >>I LOVE HOW SOMETHING LIKE THIS MAKES GROWN PEOPLE NEED TO SHOW YOU HOW THEY CAN CHUG TWO BEERS AT ONCE BEHIND A REPORTER. IT’S LIKE THIS NEED TO DO THAT. YOU ARE LIKE 40. WE KNOW. >>THE ONE THING WE HAVE LEARNED WHETHER IT WAS THE CARDINALS WINNING A CHAMPIONSHIP OR THE RAMS WINNING THE CHAMPIONSHIP IN 99 EVEN THOUGH THEY HAVE JUST COME TO ST. LOUIS AND 95 IS THAT THERE’S SOMETHING ABOUT SPORTS THAT BRINGS PEOPLE TOGETHER. WHEN A TEAM HAS BEEN WAITING THIS LONG TO WIN A CHAMPIONSHIP , IT’S A TIME TO PARTY. >>OH YEAH. >>IT IS TIME TO PARTY AND THERE’S NO REASON THAT BLUES FANS CANNOT CELEBRATE AS LONG AS WE ARE DOING IT IN A FUN, SAFE WAY. >>IT’S BRINGING TOGETHER GENERATIONS, FAMILIES. SHE’S BEEN WATCHING THE TEAM ALL SEASON AND SHE HAS BEEN MORE EXCITED THAN HER PARENTS ABOUT THIS. OWING TO ENTERPRISE CENTER. TINY KIDS ARE SO PUMPED ABOUT THIS. THEY DON’T EVEN UNDERSTAND REALLY HOW UNBELIEVABLE AND HOW LONG EVERYBODY HAS BEEN WAITING.>>WHAT PEOPLE DON’T UNDERSTAND IS THAT ST. LOUIS HAS ALWAYS BEEN A GREAT HOCKEY TIME. YOUNGSTERS GROWING UP HERE AND BEING FIRST DRAWN DRAFT CHOICES IN THE NHL. PATRICK MAROON IS A HOMETOWN KID. WHAT’S GOING TO HAPPEN NOW IS MORE AND MORE KIDS WHO HAVE SEEN THIS HAPPEN AND THEY’RE GOING TO ASK THEIR MOM AND DAD, CAN I PUT ON SKATES? I THINK WHAT HAPPENED HERE TONIGHT IS GOING TO REVERBERATE FOR YEARS AND YEARS AND YEARS IN THE HOCKEY WORLD IN ST. LOUIS. >>THAT WOULD BE GREAT. I HOPE SOME YOUNG LADIES GET INVOLVED IN IT TOO.

IS IT LIKE THAT EVERYWHERE OR DO YOU JUST HAVE A BUNCH OF PEOPLE AROUND YOU? >>Reporter: THE WHOLE STREET IS LIKE THAT. IT’S PRETTY UNREAL. I’M TRYING TO LOOK BACK I MEAN FROM ALL THE WAY ALL THE WAY TO THE PARKING GARAGE THERE ON TUCKER. THERE ARE PEOPLE JUST JAMPACKED HERE. IT REALLY IS IMPRESSIVE. >>CHRIS DAVIS. THANK YOU. >>WE FIGURE IT’S GOING TO TAKE A LITTLE WHILE FOR THE BLUES TO GET DRESSED, HEAD TO THE AIRPORT AND THEN THEY ARE GOING TO TAKE IT BACK TO ST. LOUIS. A LOT OF WELCOME THEY’RE GOING TO HAVE HERE. OUR POSTGAME COVERAGE CONTINUES HERE. >>>IF YOU ARE JUST JOINING US, BOY HAVE YOU MISSED A LOT. THE BLUES ARE THE STANLEY CUP CHAMPIONS AND LET ME JUST RESET IT FOR YOU. THE BLUES GO TO BOSTON, TIED 3- 3 WITH THE BRUINS. WHOEVER WON TONIGHT IN GAME SEVEN IS GOING TO BE THE STANLEY CUP CHAMPION. BOSTON PUT ON A BARRAGE ON THE BLUES GOALIE JORDAN BINNINGTON. SOMEHOW HE STOPPED EVERY SHOT. RYAN O’REILLY GOT A GOAL THEN ALEX PIETRANGELO SCORED ANOTHER GOAL. 2-0 AFTER THE FIRST. IN THE BLUES GOING TO WIN BY THE SCORE OF 4-1. FOR THE FIRST TIME IN THEIR HISTORY THEY STARTED IN 1967 AT THE OLD ARENA . THE BLUES ARE THE STANLEY CUP CHAMPIONS AND SO THE CELEBRATION IS ON. >>AFTER SO MANY POSTSEASON BEATINGS. EVEN WHEN THEY WERE 3-0. OUR DESKS ARE NEXT TO EACH OTHER. THERE ARE SEVEN MINUTES LEFT AND WE DON’T WANT TO SAY ANYTHING. WE CAN’T SAY ANYTHING BECAUSE WHAT IF, YOU KNOW? >>THEY GOT A 2-0 LEAD. AND PEOPLE IN THE ROOM WERE STARTING TO CELEBRATE. BUT REMEMBER IN GAME ONE THEY LIKE 2-0 AND THEY ENDED UP LOSING. IT CAN BE A DANGEROUS LEAD IN HOCKEY. TWO PERIODS TO GO DOESN’T MEAN THAT MUCH. BUT SOMEHOW THEY WEATHERED THE STORM, JORDAN BINNINGTON WAS AMAZING. SO AFTER THEY SCORED THEIR FOURTH GOAL I THINK WE COULD RELAX A LITTLE BIT. >>EVEN THEN, YOU JUST DON’T WANT TO JINX IT. BUT YES, AFTER IT WAS 4-0. >>WHEN YOU HAVE BEEN WAITING FOR SO LONG IT’S HARD TO FEEL GUARANTEED. >>LET’S GET TO CASEY NOLEN. OUTSIDE OF BALLPARK VILLAGE. HE WAS IN THERE FOR THE BIG WATCH PARTY TONIGHT. 25,000 THEY HAVE THERE? >>Reporter: I DON’T KNOW. MAYBE A BIT JILLIAN. THINGS HAVE BEEN TAKEN A TURN. I’VE BEEN CALLED FRANK CUSUMANO FOUR TIMES. PEOPLE ARE CELEBRATING TO THE POINT WHERE IT IS STARTING TO TURN THEIR JUDGMENT A LITTLE BIT. NEVERTHELESS. I WANT TO TALK WITH THE FAMILY HERE. I GRABBED YOU GUYS. WHERE ARE YOU GUYS FROM? >>WILDWOOD! WE WATCHED A ENTERPRISE. >>Reporter: TELL ME WHAT THIS MEANS TO THE FAMILY. >>NOTHING LIKE WATCHING THE STANLEY CUP VIRTUALLY IN THE ARENA OF WHERE THEY WOULD WIN. IT’S AMAZING. INDESCRIBABLE. >>IN JANUARY WHEN THEY WERE IN LAST PLACE. I NEVER SAW THIS HAPPENING. IT’S INCREDIBLE. >>Reporter: YOU’VE GOT A SOUNDTRACK, GLORIA ON THE CELL PHONE HERE. >>I BET $15 TO WIN ON THE BLUES IN JANUARY. I AM UP $1600. >>Reporter: THANK YOU GUYS. WE’RE GOING TO PATIOS BECAUSE I’M PRETTY SURE IN THE COMPANY HANDBOOK AFTER MIDNIGHT WE CAN START CELEBRATING TWO. WE WILL KEEP DOING LIVE SHOT. ANOTHER THING WE HAVE NOTICED. I LOOKED OVER AT THE METROLINK FROM BUSCH STADIUM. A HUGE GROUP OF PEOPLE GOT OFF THE METROLINK AT BUSCH STADIUM. PEOPLE ARE COMING DOWNTOWN BECAUSE THEY DIDN’T SEE IT OR THEY WEREN’T HERE WHEN IT HAPPENED. NOW THEY HAVE STARTED MOVING THIS WAY. WE’VE GOT SOMEBODY DOWN HERE BUT IT’S ALL GOOD FUN. SO WE ARE GOING TO HEAD TO PATIOS. IN THE MEANTIME. I WILL TOSS IT BACK TO THE STUDIO. I BELIEVE YOU GUYS, WE WILL TALK TO YOU SOON. >>PEOPLE ARE ON SCOOTERS NOW, NOT SURE THAT IS A GOOD THING. TALKING ABOUT THE GUY WITH THE $1600 BETS. HOW THE MAN WHO PLACED A $400 BET AND TONIGHT HE WON 100 GRAND. >>AND PEOPLE HAVE BEEN TRYING TO BUY HIM OUT. HE SAID NO. TONIGHT HE’S GOT $100,000. >>THE BEST PART IS HIS MOTHER SAID DON’T SELL OUT. I’M HOPING ALL THE PRESSURE YOU ARE GETTING WILL HELP YOU FIND A WIFE. THAT’S WHAT HIS OWN MOTHER SAID ABOUT IT. >>WE WILL CONTINUE OUR POSTGAME SHOW IN JUST A MOMENT. ♪ ♪ >>>WE ARE TALKING ABOUT A PRETTY QUIET REST OF THE NIGHT. WEATHERWISE. MAYBE NOT OTHERWISE OUTSIDE PAY LET’S GET YOU CAUGHT UP VERY QUICKLY ON WHAT IS GOING ON WE HAD SOME SHOWERS COME THROUGH EARLIER TODAY. A FEW OF US HAD SOME THUNDER. AND IF YOU ARE AT THE WATCH PARTY YOU KNOW WE ARE DEALING WITH SHOWERS DRIFTING THROUGH. THEY DIDN’T LAST ALL THAT LONG. WHAT’S OUT THERE TONIGHT UP TO THE NORTHWEST SEEMS TO BE FIZZLING AS IT COMES UNDONE. IF YOU CHECKED THE APP YOU KNOW TOMORROW IS SUNDAY. NEXT WEATHER SYSTEM STARTS APPROACHING ON FRIDAY. CLOUDS WILL BE ON THE INCREASE AS WE HEAD INTO LATE FRIDAY NIGHT AND EARLY SATURDAY MORNING THERE WILL BE A CHANCE FOR SHOWERS AND STORMS. THEN IT SEEMS LIKE WE REALLY RAMP UP THOSE CHANCES AS WE HAD THROUGH SUNDAY AND EVEN INTO THE MIDDLE OF NEXT WEEK WITH SOME LOCALLY HEAVY RAINFALL POSSIBLE. THIS WEEKEND, PROBABLY ANYWHERE FROM HALF AN INCH TO AN INCH AND A HALF BY SUNDAY NIGHT. BY THE TIME WE GET TO THE MIDDLE OF NEXT WEEK. MAYBE TALKING THREE OR FOUR INCHES FOR SOME OF US. IT’S BREEZY, IT’S COOL. DROPPING BACK TO THE 50s. THE 10 DAY FORECAST LOOKS GOOD TOMORROW WITH BRIGHT SKIES UP TO 72. CLOSE TO 80 ON FRIDAY. THE BREEZE WILL MAKE IT FEEL COOL TOMORROW, LOW 80s OVER THE WEEKEND. IF THE PARADE IS ON SATURDAY, WE DON’T KNOW THAT. BUT IT IF IT WERE TO BE ON SATURDAY, SATURDAY AFTERNOON WOULD LIKELY BE BETTER. ALL THE MODELS ARE SHOWING THE RAIN KIND OF TAPERED DOWN IN THE MORNING. THEN RETURNS LATER ON SATURDAY NIGHT INTO SUNDAY. MIKE? >>MOTHER NATURE IS GOING TO LEAVE A NICE WINDOW FOR A PARADE HERE IN DOWNTOWN ST. LOUIS. WE HAVE BEEN WAITING TOO LONG FOR THAT. >>A PERFECT WINDOW. I HOPE IT STAYS THAT WAY. WE WILL KEEP WATCHING. LET’S GET TO CHRIS DAVIS OUTSIDE THE ENTERPRISE CENTER WITH HUNDREDS AND HUNDREDS BLOCKS REALLY OFFENSE. WAIT A MINUTE. WHERE DID THEY ALL GO? >>THEY ARE BEHIND THEM NOW. >>Reporter: WE WERE TREATED TO THE OTHER SIDE OF CLARK STREET SO WE CAN BE ABLE TO TALK TO YOU AND HEAR OURSELVES. I WANTED TO GIVE YOU A LITTLE PERSPECTIVE OF THIS IS WHERE THE CROWD IS. ALL GATHERED AROUND THE STATUES AND VERY SPIRITED INDIVIDUALS RIGHT IN FRONT OF US. WE HAVE SOME LAW ENFORCEMENT OVER THE SHOULDER OF THESE GUYS TOO. AND A GREAT FAMILY I WANT TO INTRODUCE YOU TO. I KNOW YOU WANT TO BRAG ON YOUR SON FOR A SECOND. >>MY SON SURPRISED ME WITH IN SIX TICKETS AND EVEN THOUGH WE DID NOT WHEN IT WAS A HUGE SURPRISE AND EVEN BETTER NIGHT TONIGHT. >>Reporter: SEEING THE WIND TONIGHT AS A FAMILY HAD TO BE INCREDIBLE. >>BEST THING EVER. RANKS UP THERE WITH THE WORLD SERIES. >>Reporter: THAT’S WHAT WE’VE BEEN HEARING ALL NIGHT. COMPARING IT TO 99 OR THE WORLD SERIES. 2011. LOTS OF EXCITEMENT HERE IN DOWNTOWN. WE’VE GOT PEOPLE DOING CARTWHEELS. AT ONE POINT THERE WAS A BIG GROUP OF GUYS THAT TOOK OFF THEIR SHIRTS AND TOOK PICTURES IN FRONT OF THE STATUES. WHEREVER THE HEART LEADS YOU. OR EVEN THAT GUY THAT DID IT ON CUE. THERE WE GO. WE ARE GOING TO SEND IT BACK TO MIKE AND ANNE AND WE WILL GET SOME MORE STORIES FOR YOU. >>THANK YOU VERY MUCH. SOME PRETTY BAD CARTWHEELS BEHIND CHRIS. >>WHEN YOU ARE CELEBRATING YOU CAN’T DO GYMNASTICS. HERE’S A VIDEO NOW. LAILA ANDERSON. BLUES FANS AND EVERYONE’S HEART. SHE WAS DIAGNOSED WITH A LIFE- THREATENING IMMUNE DISEASE DISORDER CALLED HLH SHE HAS BECOME THE FANS AND PLAYERS TOP INSPIRATION. YOU HAVE INSPIRED ALL OF US FOR THOSE OF YOU WHO MISSED IT. HERE’S THE INTERVIEW WITH AHMAD HICKS ON THE ICE. >>Reporter: CAN YOU WALK US THROUGH WHAT TODAY WAS LIKE WHEN YOU GOT HERE IN BOSTON? >>I ACTUALLY WALKED INTO BOSTON, FEELING VERY CONFIDENT ABOUT TONIGHT. I HAD NO DOUBT THAT WE WERE GOING TO BRING THIS CUP BACK TO ST. LOUIS. AND IT’S COME BACK. >>Reporter: THAT’S FOR SURE. WHEN THEY SCORED THE FIRST GOAL, WHAT WAS GOING THROUGH YOUR MIND? >>AFTER THE FIRST GOAL I FELT, THE BOYS ARE HYPED AND THEY ARE GOING TO FINISH IT. AND THEY’RE GOING TO FINISH STRONG. >>Reporter: AT WHAT POINT IN THE GAME DID YOU KNOW THEY WERE GOING TO WIN THE STANLEY CUP? >>I ACTUALLY HAD A FEELING THEY WERE GOING TO WHEN IT BEFORE THE GAME EVEN STARTED. BUT I FELT REALLY CONFIDENT AFTER THE TWO-GOAL LEAD AFTER THE FIRST. >>Reporter: WHEN YOU GOT TAKEN TO THE STANLEY CUP, TELL US WHAT THAT WAS LIKE. >>I KNEW THAT WAS MY TIME TO SUPPORT HIM. I WAS INSTANTLY IN TEARS. >>Reporter: WOULD YOU SAY THIS IS THE GREATEST MOMENT OF YOUR LIFE? >>IT IS AND PROBABLY WILL BE FOR THE REST OF MY LIFE. >>Reporter: WHERE DO YOU WANT TO BE WHEN THE PARADE COMES TO MARKET STREET? >>I WILL BE ON THE FLOAT WITH ALL MY BOYS. >>Reporter: WHAT IS YOUR FINAL MESSAGE TO EVERYONE WHO SUPPORTED YOU THROUGHOUT THE ENTIRE PROCESS AND SUPPORTED THE BLUES. WHAT IS YOUR MESSAGE TO THEM? >>I WANT TO THANK ALL THE HOCKEY FANS FOR SUPPORTING ME AND NEVER DOUBTING THE ST. LOUIS BLUES BECAUSE WE GOT THE CUP. >>SHE IS SO ELOQUENT AND SHE IS A YOUNG TEENAGER WHO’S BEEN THROUGH SO MUCH. SHE’S NOT ALLOWED TO TRAVEL. OBVIOUSLY SHE’S GOT IMMUNE SUPPRESSION GOING ON AND TO GET ON A PLANE WITH ALL THOSE GERMS WAS A SERIOUS ISSUE. THE DOCTORS KNEW HOW IMPORTANT IT WAS. AND YOU HAVE TO LIVE YOUR LIFE. KUDOS TO THEM AND HER MOM. I’M SURE IT WAS SCARY TO GO ON THE PLANE. BUT SHE DID IT, AND IT WAS WORTH IT. >>Reporter: SHE IS SO ARTICULATE AND SO MATURE FOR HER AGE. SHE DID A BUNCH OF INTERVIEWS FOR US INTERVIEWING HER FAVORITE PLAYERS AS WE WENT ALONG FOR THE PLAYOFFS AND SHE DID AN AMAZING JOB. IF SHE EVER WANTS TO BE A BROADCASTER I THINK YOU AND I ARE OUT OF JOBS. SHE IS SO, SO ELOQUENT AND WHAT A GOOD LUCK CHARM SHE HAS BEEN. AND WHAT A NIGHT THIS HAS BEEN. WHAT AN AMAZING NIGHT. YOU GO BACK AND YOU THINK ABOUT WHEN THE BLUES FIRST CAME INTO EXISTENCE IN 1967. THE ONLY REASON THEY CAME INTO EXISTENCE IS BECAUSE THE CHICAGO BLACKHAWKS, THE OWNERS OWNED THE ARENA AND THEY WANTED TO GET RID OF IT. THE OWNER GOT A TEAM HERE THEN WE HAD A GREAT RIVALRY WITH THE BLACKHAWKS. ONE OF THE FIRST INVESTORS WAS STAN MUSIAL. THEN THEY WENT TO THE STANLEY CUP FINAL THE FIRST THREE SEASONS. AND THEY DIDN’T MAKE IT BACK. UNTIL THIS YEAR. >>2019. >>2019, THEY MADE IT BACK. AND THEY ARE NOW THE STANLEY CUP CHAMPIONS. WHAT A NIGHT. >>THANK YOU STAN, HE IS A GOOD LUCK CHARM. LET’S LOOK AT SOME VIDEO AND PICTURES THAT VIEWERS HAVE BEEN SENDING TO US IN THEIR GEAR, PUMPED UP. AS THEY WATCHED THE BLUES TAKE LORD STANLEY FOR THE FIRST TIME TONIGHT. THESE ARE PICTURES WE’VE GOTTEN FROM ALL OF YOU. AS YOU CONTINUE TO CELEBRATE IF YOU ARE WEARING YOUR BLUES TO CAMP OR TO YOUR JOB. SEND THOSE TO US YOUR KIDS, YOUR FAMILY. CELEBRATING TONIGHT. FACEBOOK, TWITTER. SEND US THOSE VIDEOS, WE WOULD LOVE TO COLLECT MORE OF THIS FOR THE MORNING SHOW IN THE NEXT DAY. THEY’RE SO CUTE. EVERYBODY IS SO PUMPED UP. >>OUR COVERAGE CONTINUES AT KSDK.COM AND ON THE 5 ON YOUR SIDE APP . PLEASE GO THERE AS WE WILL HAVE ALL KINDS OF COVERAGE AND OF COURSE TODAY IN ST. LOUIS STARTS AT 4:00 A.M. THE NEXT FEW DAYS WE WILL BE THERE FOR THE PARADE. WE HOPE TO CELEBRATE WITH YOU 5 ON YOUR SIDE IS YOUR BLUES STATION . FOR NOW, THERE YOU HAVE IT. THE ST. LOUIS BLUES ARE THE STANLEY CUP CHAMPIONS. [ CHEERS AND APPLAUSE ]
