Blues' Lapierre Suspended For Hit

The NHL is suspending St. Louis Blues forward Maxim Lapierre pending an in-person hearing for his hit that left San Jose Sharks defenseman Dan Boyle in a hospital. The date and time of Lapierre's hearing has yet to be determined. Boyle was kept overnight at a St. Louis hospital after being checked into the boards from behind during Tuesday night's game. Lapierre drove his stick into Boyle's upper back, sending him face-first into the glass. Boyle says he is okay and will continue further evaluation in San Jose. Lapierre was given a five-minute major for checking from behind, a fighting major for an ensuing fracas and was ejected from the game. The Sharks beat the Blues, 6-2.

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.
