Blues Top Blackhawks

The Blues overcame three two-goal deficits to earn a 6-5 shootout win in front of a sold out crowd at Scottrade Center. Kevin Shattenkirk's goal in the fifth round of the shootout completed St. Louis' comeback from a late two-goal deficit and sent the hosts to a 6-5 decision over Chicago at Scottrade Center. All four skaters scored in the first two rounds, and after some solid saves at each end, Shattenkirk beat Antti Raanta with a low shot inside the left post. Brandon Saad was then turned away by Brian Elliott to end the contest. Vladimir Tarasenko and Patrik Berglund scored late in the third period to force overtime for the Blues, who played without leading scorer Alex Steen, placed on injured reserve prior to the contest with a concussion. Maxim Lapierre, Jaden Schwartz and Dmitrij Jaskin also li the lamp to help Elliott claim the victory in relief of Jaroslav Halak. Halak was yanked after allowing three goals on 13 shots in the first period. Elliott ended up with 17 saves in regulation. Patrick Kane picked up a goal and two assists for the Blackhawks, while Raanta made just 20 stops. Patrick Sharp, Andrew Shaw, Saad and Brent Seabrook all lit the lamp in defeat. Chicago has lost all three games to its Central Division rivals this season.

Over the course of the past 16 years doing commentary on air and in print, there have sadly been many mass shootings and many predictable politicized reactions.

The shootings at Emmanuel AME Church in Charleston, South Carolina, however, stands out for two main reasons.

It involved race, and it was done it a church.
