Oshie lifts Blues to shootout win over Montreal

Tuesday, 05 November 2013 22:56 Published in Sports

 

MONTREAL (AP) -- T.J. Oshie scored in the shootout to give the St. Louis Blues a 3-2 victory over the Montreal Canadiens on Tuesday night.

Alexander Steen and Chris Stewart scored in regulation for St. Louis, and Jaroslav Halak had 25 saves. Halak also turned away three shots in the shootout.

Rene Bourque and Michael Bournival scored for Montreal (8-7-1), and Carey Price made 30 saves.

The Blues outshot the Canadiens 32-27 overall.

Tomas Plekanec had a chance to win it in regulation for Montreal. He was awarded a penalty shot in the final minute, but missed the net high and wide.

St. Louis opened the scoring at 2:38 of the first period when Steen collected his NHL-best 13th goal of the season.

Blues captain David Backes got it started by stealing the puck from defender Douglas Murray, who was playing softly behind his own net. Backes pushed Murray down and passed the puck to a wide-open Steen, who beat Price over his left shoulder.

Montreal tied it at 5:38 of the second period. Andrei Markov drove hard to the net, colliding with Halak in the process. With Halak still shaken up, the puck fell to Bourque in the crease, and he converted from in close.

Bournival put the Canadiens in front at 14:49 with his fourth of the year. He intercepted a poor pass from Jay Bouwmeester in the St. Louis zone and quickly fired a slap shot between Halak's legs.

Stewart tied it again at 10:31 of the third period when he deflected a Kevin Shattenkirk blue-line shot off the post and past Price.

Halak returned to Montreal for just the second time since being traded to the Blues in 2010. He earned a shutout in his other trip to Montreal in January 2012, winning 3-0.

David Desharnais was out of the Canadiens' lineup after a slow start to his season. The 27-year-old forward, who recently signed a four-year contract extension, has one point in 15 games this season.

NOTES: The Canadiens were coming off back-to-back road losses to the Wild and Avalanche. ... Montreal was without injured players Daniel Briere, Brandon Prust, Alexei Emelin and Travis Moen. There is no timetable yet for their return.

LOCAL, NOT US, ISSUES AT PLAY IN TUESDAY VOTING

Tuesday, 05 November 2013 11:31 Published in National News

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — Big judgments about the direction of the country will have to wait on this Election Day as voters around the country express opinions on a couple of governors' races, several mayoral races and a host of local issues.

Among the contests around the country Tuesday are governor's races in Virginia and New Jersey, mayoral races in some of America's biggest cities and whether to spend more than $217 million to revive Houston's shuttered Astrodome.

From ballot initiatives to mayor's races, these off-year elections will shed virtually no light on how the American public feels about today's two biggest national debates — spending and health care. Those will have to be addressed in next fall's midterm elections.

Here's a look at some of the more interesting matters on which voters will render judgment:

—Big city mayors: Big city mayoral races also will be decided in Atlanta, Boston, Detroit, Minneapolis and Seattle.

Then there's New York, where Michael Bloomberg has served for 12 years and where former New York Rep. Anthony Weiner's hope for political redemption became an asterisk to the two candidates, Bill de Blasio and Joe Lhota.

—Washington state: A ballot issue over genetically modified food labeling has become a proxy fight between transparency and the world's largest food companies.

The campaign has drawn hefty financial contributions in opposition from the likes of PepsiCo., Monsanto and General Mills. Last year, such interests combined to spend $46 million to defeat a similar question in California.

Supporters say consumers have a right to know whether foods contain genetically engineered ingredients. Foes say the label would imply the food is less safe.

—Colorado: Colorado voters are deciding whether to tax marijuana at 25 percent and apply the proceeds to regulating the newly legalized drug and building schools.

At the opposite end of the spectrum, voters in 11 rural counties are asking voters to approve secession from the state, where Democrats have legalized pot and same sex unions. One county wants to join Wyoming. It's a longshot proposal but a sign of divisions between conservative rural Colorado, the Denver area's swing-voting suburbs and the liberal city of Denver and resort towns.

In Washington, D.C., the 16-day partial federal government shutdown and troubled rollout of the federal health care law has focused attention on Washington dysfunction, and Americans' contempt for it.

There is no one clear question on the thousands of ballots around the country that will gauge Americans' mood. But there are factors to watch that could have national implications in 2014 and beyond.

—Alabama: Bradley Byrne, the choice of the GOP establishment, is running against self-described tea party conservative Dean Young in this special congressional GOP primary.

The race is the first test of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce's promise to try to influence primaries and has pumped at least $200,000 into supporting Byrne, a state senator with almost two decades in politics.

Young has tattooed the chamber endorsement to Byrne as evidence he's the choice of big Washington interests and relishes a confrontational style, marked by his reference to the president as "Barack Hussein Obama."

Byrne has countered by projecting himself as statesmanlike, while also ticking through what he calls a conservative record on taxes, spending and his opposition to the 2010 federal health care law.

New Jersey — Some political strategists might look to New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie's margin of victory should he win his New Jersey re-election race — where polls show he has widespread support — as a measure of this potential presidential candidate's strength on the national stage.

And in Virginia, former Democratic National Committee Chairman Terry McAuliffe could win his first elective office in a decades-long political career after linking his GOP rival to House Republicans whose demands helped trigger the shutdown. Polls show McAuliffe with an edge over state Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli, a conservative with tea party support.

And in tiny Coralville, Iowa, a big national outside group is exerting its influence. The conservative group Americans for Prosperity that played a role in last year's national elections has blanketed the eastern Iowa town of 19,000 with mail, radio, Twitter and Facebook ads promoting conservative council candidates to tackle a $280-million debt.

The input is hardly unwelcome, said Republican county co-chairman David Yansky.

"They have great ideas," Yansky said. "They want to be involved where government has overreached. That's part of their mission."

Schnucks expands into healthcare

Tuesday, 05 November 2013 10:35 Published in Local News

Schnucks supermarkets already have pharmacies, floral shops and cooking classes. Now the St. Louis chain is branching into healthcare.  

Schnucks is opening its first Schnucks Infusion Solutions facility to treat acute and chronic conditions.

Infusion therapy is administered by injecting medicine through a needle or catheter. It treats conditions ranging from infectious diseases to cancer.

The new 65-hundred square foot healthcare facility is located on Page Service Rd.  There, pharmacists will prepare infusions to be given to patients either at the center or at home.

Schnucks Director of Pharmacy Services Dave Chism, calls outpatient infusion therapy a "safe and cost-effective alternative for patients to receive treatment" in an alternate healthcare setting.  

Chism says patients tend to recuperate better at home, and with the focus now on shorter hospital stays, he says there is a growing need for infusion providers.

For more information visit: www.schnucksinfusionsolutions.com or call 1-877-386-4077.
