O'Reilly talks Blues Cup repeat on NHL @TheRink podcast

'It's time to do it again,' center says in latest episode @NHLdotcom

Ryan O'Reilly said it's time for the St. Louis Blues to turn the page on their Stanley Cup championship and focus on winning it again. 

"Once August came around it was kind of that feeling that you put the Cup in the case and it's a little sad," O'Reilly said. "You're like, 'This has come to an end, it's time to ramp up.' It's time to go do it again."

O'Reilly, the Blues center who was voted the winner of the Conn Smythe Trophy as most valuable player of the Stanley Cup Playoffs, talked about the challenge that awaits the Blues on the latest episode of the NHL @TheRink podcast. The episode, hosted by senior writer Dan Rosen, is now available. 

The new episode also features a talk with former NHL goalie Brian Boucher, who will be between the benches for the Blues' season-opening game against the Washington Capitals at Enterprise Center on Wednesday as part of NHL Face-Off (8 p.m. ET; NBCSN). 

In addition, staff writer Mike Zeisberger calls in to talk about the Toronto Maple Leafs, including who he thinks should be named captain. 

The podcast is free and listeners can subscribe on all platforms, including Apple, Spotify, Stitcher and Google. It is also available on and the NHL app.
