Well, there were a lot of memorable moments, some that resulted in stories and some that were more anecdotal. But here are 4 that stick out in my mind.
1.) GOLD --Binnington tells me he's not nervous.
2.) SILVER _ After a comeback victory in Florida in early February, I ask Vince Dunn why the Blues were playing disco music after a victory. (This is how the Gloria phenomenon began.)
3.) BRONZE _ Seeing and hearing the reaction of Blues front office personnel, that night's player scratches, and Black Aces in the press box after Brayden Schenn's third period goal gave the Blues a 3-0 lead in Game 7 against Boston.. There were 8 1/2 minutes left in the game. But the Blues knew at that moment, they were going to win the Cup.
HONORABLE MENTION _ On a bench in a lobby area between two rinks in Traverse City, Mich., in early September at the NHL prospects tournament, GM Doug Armstrong tells me he thinks the "window of opportunity" is opening again for the Blues.
