Shattenkirk scores in OT to lift Blues past Stars

Kevin Shattenkirk's power-play goal with 11 seconds remaining in overtime gave the St. Louis Blues a 3-2 win against the Dallas Stars at American Airlines Center. Shattenkirk's goal, which came off a one-timer from the left circle, rang off the left post and the far post before going in. T.J. Oshie had a goal and an assist, and Vladimir Sobotka had two assists for the Blues; Brian Elliott made 28 saves. St. Louis went on the power play late in OT when Stars rookie defenseman Kevin Connauton was called for tripping Derek Roy at 4:24, and the Blues converted 25 seconds later. Blues coach Ken Hitchcock was clearly pleased to see his team win for the fourth time in five games, and he gave much of the credit for the deciding goal to Sobotka, who assisted on St. Louis' first and final goals.

I am a woman. I would be more than happy to have more money in my paycheck. Too bad the Paycheck Fairness Act won't do that for me. Who wants "equality" if it comes because everyone makes less money?

Nonetheless, the Paycheck Fairness Act is the latest weapon in the War On Women, part II--2014 election style.
