Blues' Kyrou Brought to Tears After Getting Booed on Home Ice

It was the toughest home game of his career and Jordan Kyrou of the St Louis Blues doesn't ever want to have to go through that again.

After the Blues fired head coach Craig Berube, Kyrou was asked about his relationship with his ex-bench boss and gave a very candid answer that he had no comment and was moving on as Berube wasn't his coach anymore. Well, it was pretty obvious what the Blues faithful thought of Kyrou's comments.

During the player introductions Kyrou was booed, and the noise continued throughout the game as every time he touched the puck, he was booed. After the game the microphones were back in front of his face and this time around his tone appeared to change as he admitted it was the toughest night of his hockey career:

It's definitely the toughest game I've probably played, to be honest. It's just tough, right? Like, I love playing here, so it's just tough to hear the fans booing me there. It's not easy, obviously, but I see where they're coming from with how my comments sounded. That's definitely tough, you know, I love playing here; I love playing in front of the fans. Obviously, I respect (Berube). He's been my coach for the whole time I've been here, right? So I respect everything he's done here. He's done a great job; he won a Cup. All I really meant was, I'm just trying to focus on my future, focus on what I can do to help my team win. Sorry if it sounded in a bad way at all. Just like I said, I'm just really trying to focus on the future here and focus on what I can do to help our team win.

Here's some of what Kyrou had to go through Thursday night on home ice.
