It was a moment Laila Anderson and the rest of the St. Louis Blues had been waiting for, and will remember for the rest of their lives... It was the moment they got to plant big kisses on the Stanley Cup!
Anderson, 11, was by the side of her favorite player, defenseman Colton Parayko, as he lifted the cup in the air and celebrated the team's victory over the Boston Bruins. Anderson is battling HLH, a rare disease that attacks the immune system. One of things that keeps her going is her favorite sport, and her favorite team! The St. Louis Blues actually flew her out for the game, so she could experience the joy live in person!
