Governor Parson Orders Capitol Lighted Blue in Celebration of St. Louis Blues’ Stanley Cup Victory

Governor Mike Parson has ordered the lighting of the Missouri State Capitol dome to shine blue Thursday evening in celebration of the St. Louis Blues’ first-ever win of the Stanley Cup. 

The Blues’ Stanley Cup victory marks the end of the team’s 52-year wait for hockey’s highest honor. After defeating the Boston Bruins 4-1 Wednesday night, the Blues brought the Stanley Cup home to St. Louis for the first time. A celebration and parade is planned for Saturday in downtown St. Louis. 

“The wait is over — the St. Louis Blues have brought the Stanley Cup home to the great State of Missouri. This is a well-deserved victory for a team that has inspired the people of St. Louis and Missouri throughout a hard-fought season. The Blues have made us all proud. Congratulations to the Stanley Cup Champions —  St. Louis Blues,” Governor Parson said.
