LAS VEGAS — The Stanley Cup has landed in Vegas.
The Blues left St. Louis and headed out to Sin City Saturday night after hundreds of thousands of fans gathered downtown for the Stanley Cup Championship parade and rally.
David Perron was the first to officially announce the trip after rumors had been circulating throughout the evening.
“Vegas! So good to see you! The Champs are here baby! Let’s go!” he tweeted just before midnight St. Louis time.
It didn’t take long for Stanley sightings to start showing up on social media.
One Blues fan saw the team walking through a hotel. He got several hugs from players and got Jordan Binnington to stop and take a photo with him while he was wearing a shirt with Binnington’s face on it.
Another video showed the team carrying the Cup and rolling their luggage through a casino while people cheered them on.
But the Cup didn’t stay in a hotel room… it went out to party with the players. They were seen hoisting the Stanley Cup to hype up the crowd at a club.
“Man, I guess I can check ‘partying with Stanley Cup champions in Vegas’ off my bucket list,” one woman wrote on Twitter.
“Partied in Vegas with the Stanley Cup champs tonight. That was pretty cool,” another woman tweeted.
Apparently, Las Vegas is the place to be for first-time champions. The Toronto Raptors also are in Vegas right now celebrating their first NBA championship.
