The St. Louis Blues are in the second round of the NHL playoffs for the first time in a decade, and Mayor Slay is honoring the resurgent team.
Slay declared Friday as St. Louis Blues Day and is asking St. Louisans to wear blue in recognition of the day. The Blues open the second round of the playoffs with a home game Saturday against the Los Angeles Kings.
The Blues beat San Jose to win the first-round series in five games.
Jamie Langenbrunner and David Perron scored two goals in 45 seconds, and Andy McDonald added an empty-net insurance tally late in the third period as the St. Louis Blues won their first playoff series in a decade, beating the San Jose Sharks 3-1 in front of a standing-room-only crowd at the Scottrade Center.
