ST. LOUIS - Francis Slay, the Mayor of the City of St. Louis, declared Friday, April 27, 2012 to be "St. Louis Blues Day" in St. Louis.

Citizens of St. Louis are encouraged to wear Blues gear throughout the community on Friday: at home, at school, at work (if the employer allows) and to other recreational activities around the city.

"I'm proud of the Blues for winning the Central Division Championship and I wish them luck in the second round," said Mayor Slay. "I encourage all St. Louisans to support our winning hockey team and wear blue for the Blues on Friday, April 27th."

Mayor Slay presented the official proclamation to Blues' CEO Mike McCarthy and Blues mascot Louie on Thursday morning.

The Blues recently wrapped up their regular season with a franchise-record 30 home wins and a Central Division Championship. After defeating the San Jose Sharks in Round 1 of the Stanley Cup Playoffs last week, the Blues will meet the Los Angeles Kings in Round 2, which begins Saturday at Scottrade Center.
