Blues Sink Blackhawks In OT Again

Barret Jackman's goal a little over five minutes into overtime lifted the Blues to a 4-3 win and 2-0 lead over the Blackhawks at the Scottrade Center in opening round of the NHL playoffs. Vladimir Tarasenko scored a power play goal with just under seven seconds left in the third period sent the game to the extra session. That goal came as a result of Brent Seabrook's five-minute major and subsequent game misconduct for charging David Backes, who did not return. Backes was crushed into the boards. St. Louis won Game One in triple-OT. Ryan Miller stopped 25 of the 28 shots he faced in the victory. Seabrook, Duncan Keith, and Michael Rozsival each lit the lamp in the loss for the 'Hawks. Corey Crawford gave up four goals on 31 attempts. Game Three is in Chicago on Monday.

When people threaten violence or blankly label one as a racist, it's very hard to listen. The same holds true for those who sum up the plight of impoverished black communities as "that's how those people are."

The 36-year-old right-hander will earn the league minimum 500-thousand-dollars after making 15.25-million each of the last three seasons. Lackey was acquired from Boston at the trade deadline and his contract had a clause allowing for a league-minimum option after missing the entire 2012 season due to elbow surgery.
