The St. Louis Blues are in the Stanley Cup for the first time since 1970, and they plan to make good on this rare opportunity. They are tied 2-2 with the Bruins heading into Game 5 in Boston on Thursday.

What has this postseason run been like for St. Louis?

“It’s been really a wonderful ride for us,” Blues Hall-of-Famer and TV analyst Bernie Federko said on After Hours with Amy Lawrence. “I played 13 years for the Blues, and my job was to try to win a Stanley Cup. Unfortunately, we weren’t able to do it. I think since I retired, every year we just continue to hope this is going to be the year for the St. Louis Blues. I was very proud to be a part of the team. I was one of the guys that was able to help the team be successful enough to continue to grow with hockey fans in St. Louis. Now we’ve got such a great following, the team is on the verge of maybe something great, and we couldn’t be as alumni more proud of what this team has been doing. 

“So we’ve got our fingers crossed like everybody else,” Federko continued. “To be watching this right now and hoping that this is maybe the year makes us feel very, very proud for one thing, but very excited about the possibility.”
