No One Was More Fired up About the Blues' Game 7 Win Than Jon Hamm

(KMOX) He may have gained fame in Hollywood, but St. Louis native Jon Hamm returned to his roots to sweat it out with St. Louis Blues fans Tuesday night at Enterprise Center.

"This is what makes hockey amazing," Hamm said after the Blues prevailed over the Dallas Stars in double overtime in Game 7 of the Western Conference semifinals.

Patrick Maroon, a St. Louis native, scored the game-winner for the Blues. Hamm described the moment the Blues won it as "so many high fives."

"This is why I've loved hockey since I was a little kid, and why I've loved St. Louis Blues hockey since I was a little kid. It's phenomenally exciting."

Hamm was nervous, too.

"We dominated (the Stars) for three periods and we still could have lost. And that sucks...except it didn't," Hamm said with a grin.

Hamm was asked if he'd "dare to dream" about a Stanley Cup championship. 

"Of course," he said.

The Blues will play the winner of Wednesday night's Game 7 between the Colorado Avalanche and the San Jose Sharks in the Western Conference finals.
