Blues Host Coyotes Tonight

The Blues are back on friendly ice tonight as they open a three-game homestand against Phoenix. The Blues lost 2-1 at Vancouver on Friday, snapping their seven-game winning streak. The Coyotes have won just three of their last 13 games.

The St. Louis Blues haven't let the loss of Alexander Steen slow them down. With the winger nearing a possible return, the Blues aim to rebound from their first regulation loss in nearly a month as they host the Phoenix Coyotes on Tuesday night. The Blues have been without their leading scorer in Steen since he suffered a concussion on Dec. 21 versus the Edmonton Oilers and he still leads the club with 24 goals and 38 points despite missing the past nine games. St. Louis lost a shootout decision to Calgary in its first game without Steen, but then ripped off a season-high seven straight wins before having that run halted with Friday's loss in Vancouver. Steen, meanwhile, was able to fully participate in practice on Monday for the first time since his injury, though there is still no timetable for his return.

"No Justice, No Peace"

Certainly, there was no peace on the streets of Ferguson on the night the grand jury announced it would not indict police officer Darren Wilson for the shooting of Michael Brown.

The images of a city burning were disturbing, saddening and sickening. Every business torched leaves in its wake families who have lost their source of income, and a community that will find it that much harder to rebuild.
