While the story about Carpenter is nice, nothing tops what the Blues will do before Sunday night's game against the Minnesota Wild at the Scottrade Center.
In order to honor the passing of Stan Musial, the Blues will all wear No. 6 jerseys with Musial across the back during warmups on Sunday night.
STL BLUES class and respect for the greatest St. Louis athlete ever as the boys will wear these during warm-up tonight twitter.com/Chasenpucks39/…

Not only will the team honor Musial with the gesture, but they will also make the occasion charitable. The team plans on signing the jerseys and then auctioning them off during the game in order to raise money for the Blues 14 fund and for Cardinals Care.
For years the Blues have been known as a fan-friendly organization and making a gesture like this will certainly help win people over.
Honoring Stan Musial the way the Blues have chosen to do so is unique and fun and the organization should be applauded for recognizing just how great a person Stan "The Man" Musial truly was.
