Ducks hand Blues rare home loss

What was supposed to be a clash of Western Conference giants was quickly squashed by the Anaheim Ducks. Ryan Getzlaf extended his point streak to 13 games with a goal and an assist, and the Ducks handed the St. Louis Blues their second regulation loss at home with a 5-2 victory Saturday at Scottrade Center. The Ducks (20-7-5) got goals from Andrew Cogliano, Corey Perry and Getzlaf in the opening 7:29. Perry and Getzlaf scored in a 1:53 span to chase Blues goalie Jaroslav Halak. Nick Bonino and Cogliano had a goal and an assist, and rookie Frederik Andersen stopped 26 shots to improve to 8-1-0. The Ducks, who defeated the Chicago Blackhawks 3-2 in a shootout Friday, are 5-1-2 in their past eight games.

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.
