BLues Top Islanders

T.J. Oshie tied the game at 19:33 of the third period and the St. Louis Blues caught a break when a New York Islanders goal was waived off in overtime Saturday. The Blues beat the Islanders 4-3 in a shootout, with Kevin Shattenkirk scoring the winner in the third round. Thomas Vanek appeared to have the game-winner during a power play in overtime after the puck went off his left skate in the crease and slipped under Blues goaltender Jaroslav Halak. But it was waived off upon review and Alexander Steen and Shattenkirk scored in the shootout to give St. Louis a 3-1-0 finish on its four-game road trip. Vladimir Tarasenko had two goals and Oshie scored on a wrister from the slot after faking a slap shot. Steen, who was questionable for the game because of a lower-body injury, had two assists. Halak had 33 saves including three in overtime. The Blues have won three in a row over the Islanders and five of the last six meetings.
Vanek, Kyle Okposo and Matt Martin scored for the Islanders, who have lost two straight. Kevin Poulin gave up three goals on 35 shots and Vanek and Okposo also had one assist.

OFF THE CUFF with Diane Jones

It came as a shock to a lot of people to find out that the contract for the Union license office, which has been operated by the Union Chamber of Commerce since the 1970's, was being turned over to a for-profit company based out of Jefferson City.

What happened? It's a classic case of two all-too-common phenomena in the world of government--unintended consequences and the revolving door.
