ST. LOUIS (KMOX) – Today was the first time the St. Louis Blues were introduced to the brand new center-hung scoreboard at Scottrade Center.
The new video board, lighting upgrades and new seating options were part of phase 1 of the three-year arena renovations at Scottrade. The new video board was the most anticipated by fans.
With the help of $65 million in funding from the city of St. Louis and $90 million of their own money, the Blues will spend the next three summers renovating the 23-year-old facility.
Tuesday was the first day the players skated under the new lights and scoreboard. For more video from inside of the Blues, check out the KMOXSports Instagram story:
