ST. LOUIS (KMOX) - Blame it on the pandemic break. Blame it on the power play and penalty kill units. Blame it on the so-called Stanley Cup Championship hangover. It doesn't matter what caused the St. Louis Blues surprise Western Conference quarterfinals exit from the 2020 Stanley Cup Playoffs because the Bozak family is clearly just happy to be together again. 

There's no doubt that forward Tyler Bozak wanted to be part of a team that repeated as NHL champions in 2020, but to finally come home to his wife and three children after four weeks away in Edmonton has to be a pretty good consequence of losing the series to the Vancouver Canucks in six games.

His wife, Molly Bozak, shared video from their front door of the moment that the family was reunited. She carried their daughter as their son, the oldest child, sprinted out to the end of the driveway. You can hear their son first questioning who he was seeing, "Daddy?" And then taking off and yelling "Daddy!" once he recognized his dad. 

The Bozak's also welcomed their third child back in March – which just so happened to be about 9 months after the Blues won the 2019 Stanley Cup. Hmmm. 

The Blues left St. Louis on July 21 for the NHL Western Conference bubble in Edmonton. They were 0-2-1 in the three seeding games to Colorado, Vegas and Dallas, then lost to the Canucks in their first-round playoff matchup. 

Players were not allowed to visit family or friends during their time in the bubble.  

Bozak tallied two assists in his eight games played.
