ST. LOUIS (AP) The Latest on the Stanley Cup celebration in St. Louis (all times local):
3:30 p.m.
St. Louis Blues players have taken turns hoisting the Stanley Cup to the cheers of a massive crowd beneath the Gateway Arch.
Hundreds of thousands of people turned out Saturday for a parade and rally to honor the Stanley Cup champion Blues. They won their first title in 52 years of existence by beating the Boston Bruins 4-1 in Game 7 on Wednesday. The win ended one of sports' longest championship droughts.
Coach Craig Berube told the crowd at the rally that he's happy for the city and fans, but most of all, he's happy for his players.
St. Louis has long been considered a baseball haven, thanks to the Cardinals' 11 World Series titles. But it sure looked like a hockey town Saturday as fans shouted, ''Let's Go Blues!'' and danced to repeated renditions of ''Gloria,'' Laura Branigan's 1982 hit that became the unofficial victory song.
