On Saturday, September 6, our family lost a dear friend to a car accident. Listeners know her as Lexi the Impulse Puppy. It surprised us a bit just how much the loss struck us--a tribute to just how much that dog loved us--and just how much we loved that dog. Dogs are not the same as people, but they certainly tap into the very best of us.
Dillon Heatherington scored from the blue line midway through overtime to lift the Blue Jackets to a 4-3 win over the Blues in the preseason opener at Columbus. Jori Lehtera, Vladimir Tarasenko and Sebastian Wannstrom scored for St. Louis. The Blues skate at Dallas tonight.
