ST. LOUIS — The St. Louis Blues had its first home game Tuesday night since the helicopter crash that killed nine people, including Kobe Bryant and his daughter.

The St. Louis Wheel was also lit up in purple and gold.
“It's our first home game since the tragedy in California, and we didn't want to let it go by without a tribute to Kobe Bryant, his daughter Gianna and the rest of those whose lives were lost.,” The St. Louis Blues said.
