Jay Bouwmeester was involved in his first postseason series victory Monday night when the Blues eliminated Chicago in Game 7.

"This is my 13th, 14th year, and I finally win a playoff round," he said. "First Game 7, first time I win." The 13-year NHL veteran had to wait until 2013 to make his NHL playoff debut and St. Louis lost three straight times in Round 1 before finally knocking out the defending Stanley Cup champions. Bouwmeester logged 25:29 of ice time in Game 7 and he picked up an assist when Jori Lehtera tipped his point shot.
