The St. Louis Blues capped off a rollercoaster season by securing their first-ever Stanley Cup which could not help but seem like an eight-month romcom.

Boy meets girl, boy falls in love with girl, the two go through a rough patch, but in the end, they work through all the adversity to eventually stick together for the rest of their lives. This plot is something all St. Louis Blues fans can relate to last season.

When Doug Armstrong put the team together in July, acquiring Ryan O’Reilly via trade, and signing David Perron and Tyler Bozak to multi-year deals, the Blues were looking like the prettiest girl at the prom.

Blues fans everywhere could not wait for the year to start and get a look at their brand new team. We all gave the team a chance at the beginning of the season to turn their early struggles around.

However, it was not until Christmas time that Blues fans started to grow tired of the inconsistent play and the constant tinkering with their feelings.

At this point in the year, there were only a handful of fans that had all but given up on any kind of opportunity to give the St. Louis Blues another chance to redeem themselves. Still, the Blues found themselves pushing away the people who truly cared about them.

The Blues were in last place in the entire league, and there were hardly any glimpses of hope for St. Louis’ season to turn around. The team was losing to some of the worst teams in the NHL, but despite their struggles, they never lost more than two games in a row.

Enter, prince charming. Jordan Binnington came into the picture like Ryan Gosling shirtless on the back of a pontoon boat.

The 25-year-old rookie came into the picture and swept every Blues fan off their feet and into a state of euphoria for the next six months and propelled the Blues back into the hearts of their fans.

It was not all smooth sailing when Binnington entered the lineup, but he did solidify a significant need for the team that had been lacking for the better part of a decade.

The Blues were able to rekindle their relationship with the fans to eventually earn their trust heading into the Stanley Cup Playoffs, where their relationships with St. Louisans would be put to the test.

Having fallen just two points shy of a Central Division title, the Blues road to glory was marked by difficult opponents and unique moments.

Many fans have had a relationship with the Blues for many years, some exceeding three or four decades. However, with sports, the bond between a fan and their team is something that can never be broken.

Despite the turbulence during the 2018-19 season, Blues fans everywhere were rewarded for their patience and loyalty with their favorite team. Just like with most romantic comedies, the guy (the Blues and their fans) got the girl (the ultimate prize).
