BLues Top Islanders

T.J. Oshie tied the game at 19:33 of the third period and the St. Louis Blues caught a break when a New York Islanders goal was waived off in overtime Saturday. The Blues beat the Islanders 4-3 in a shootout, with Kevin Shattenkirk scoring the winner in the third round. Thomas Vanek appeared to have the game-winner during a power play in overtime after the puck went off his left skate in the crease and slipped under Blues goaltender Jaroslav Halak. But it was waived off upon review and Alexander Steen and Shattenkirk scored in the shootout to give St. Louis a 3-1-0 finish on its four-game road trip. Vladimir Tarasenko had two goals and Oshie scored on a wrister from the slot after faking a slap shot. Steen, who was questionable for the game because of a lower-body injury, had two assists. Halak had 33 saves including three in overtime. The Blues have won three in a row over the Islanders and five of the last six meetings.
Vanek, Kyle Okposo and Matt Martin scored for the Islanders, who have lost two straight. Kevin Poulin gave up three goals on 35 shots and Vanek and Okposo also had one assist.

OFF THE CUFF with Diane Jones

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.
