Missouri teenager Emily Linneman is in a battle for her life against relapsed osteosarcoma, and doctors told her mother it is time for Linneman to complete her bucket list. Linneman accomplished many of the items on the list, such as playing basketball, riding a motorcycle, getting a tattoo and having a wedding.

But one of the items on the list — attending a Blues game — seemed out of reach when Linneman was too ill to use her tickets to Tuesday's game. 

When the Blues heard of that complication, they decided to bring the fun to her as Alex Steen, David Backes and Alex Pietrangelo visited Linneman at home. The following video tells the whole story:

That's a great gesture from the Blues toward an incredibly deserving teenager.
