Early Tuesday morning, U.S. fighter jets, armed Predator and Reaper drones, and Navy ships launched airstrike attacks against ISIS, deep within Syria. While it is ironic that it was about a year ago at this time that President Obama was seriously considering strikes against Syrian leader Bashir al-Assad, sometimes threats emerge even greater than the last.
Alexander Steen scored the winner in the second period and the St. Louis Blues notched a 3-1 win over the Carolina Hurricanes in preseason action. David Backes and Vladimir Tarasenko also scored for St. Louis, which got 19 stops from Brian Elliott in net. Ryan Murphy had the lone goal of the game for the Hurricanes, who saw Cam Ward give up all three goals on 29 shots.
