The wait is over — 52 long years. The St. Louis Blues are finally Stanley Cup champions.

The Blues defeated the Boston Bruins 4-1 in Game 7 of the Stanley Cup Final on Wednesday night to claim the franchise's first title. While goaltender Jordan Binnington may receive the lion's share of the praise for his terrific 32-save effort, Blues fans know who the true hero was.

You feel uncomfortable watching her watching her. The quiet mother taking it all in, while her little girl makes the surreal real, yet again. The Blues just won Game 4 on Friday night, and there's 11-year-old Laila Anderson , standing on the Blues ' bench at Enterprise Center

The 11-year-old Anderson has become synonymous with the Blues' playoff run since her appearance in Game 3 of the Western Conference finals vs. San Jose. Anderson suffers from a rare, life-threatening autoimmune disorder called hemophagocytic lymphohistiocytosis, or HLH. She first came in contact with the team when she met Parayko during a team event on Halloween, and the two kept in touch.

Her feel-good story quickly circulated through the national media, and the National Bobblehead Hall of Fame and Museum even created a bobblehead of Anderson with a portion of the proceeds benefiting St. Louis Children's Hospital.

While Anderson's battle toward 100 percent health may not be over — she received a bone marrow transplant in January, per STLToday.com — the magic of being a part of St. Louis' quest for its first Stanley Cup certainly helps.
