Blues Clamp Down On Wild

Jaden Schwartz and Andy McDonald had a goal and an assist each to lead the Blues in a 4-1 win over the Wild. Barret Jackman and Kevin Shattenkirk also lit the lamp for St. Louis, which ended a three-game slide. Jaroslav Halak made five saves before departing late in the first period with a lower-body injury. Brian Elliott came on to stop 19-of-20 shots in relief. Dany Heatley had the lone goal for Minnesota while Niklas Backstrom turned away 20 shots in the cage. The Wild have dropped two out of three following a seven-game winning streak.

August 9, 2014, will forever be marked in the history books as the date Michael Brown was shot by a Ferguson police officer.

It is the aftermath of that event, however, which history will forever remember. The protesters, the looters, the agitators, the Hands Up Don't Shoot movement, the dramatic announcement of the grand jury, the buildings up in flames. In the process, the community and image of Ferguson was destroyed.
