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.

OFF THE CUFF with Diane Jones

1 week 4 days ago

On Saturday, September 6, our family lost a dear friend to a car accident. Listeners know her as Lexi the Impulse Puppy. It surprised us a bit just how much the loss struck us--a tribute to just how much that dog loved us--and just how much we loved that dog. Dogs are not the same as people, but they certainly tap into the very best of us.
