Blues pay tribute to Demitra and Korolev

Nov 8, 2011, 9:23 PM EDT

Before tonight’s game between Chicago and St. Louis, the Blues organization paid tribute to Pavol Demitra and Igor Korolev who both lost their lives in the Lokomotiv tragedy this summer. Korolev broke into the NHL with the Blues and played his final NHL game with the Blackhawks. Demitra also broke into the NHL with the St. Louis Blues and played some of the best hockey of his career during his eight season stay with the Blues.

It was a classy ceremony from a couple of classy organizations. Check it out if you have a spare moment. Or a spare tear.

    Still is really hard to read those names, along with all the others. Hard to imagine they’re gone.
