The Streak Has Ended

Last night, John and I went to see the Blues take on the Flames at Savvis Center.  This was the first hockey game I’ve been to in at least two years, and it was nice to be back in there watching a game.  The Blues had held the record for the longest streak of appearances in the playoffs among any pro sport — 25 seasons! — and if they lost tonight, they would be eliminated from the playoffs, and the streak would be over.  This was also the 3000th game in franchise history.

To sum up their performance, it was bad.  By the time John and I left with 10 minutes in the 3rd period, the Blues were down 7-1.  Ug-ly.

On the bright side, it was coffee mug night, so I now have yet another mug to add to my shelf!  🙂
