Fayne, Carter spark Devils over Blues 7-1

Tuesday, 21 January 2014 23:49 Published in Sports
 
NEWARK, N.J. (AP) -- Mark Fayne and Ryan Carter scored 24 seconds apart early in the first period to spark the New Jersey Devils to a 7-1 win over the St. Louis Blues on Tuesday night.
 
Jaromir Jagr, Ryane Clowe, Adam Henrique, Damien Brunner and Eric Gelinas added goals and the Devils celebrated a return to the snow-bound Prudential Center after losing three of four on the road. The seven goals were a season high, both ways. It was the biggest outburst by the Devils, and the most surrendered by the Blues.
 
Cory Schneider, 3-0-2 in his last five appearances, made 26 saves.
 
The game went on as scheduled despite a heavy snowstorm that held the crowd to an announced turnout of 2,000.
 
Alexander Steen scored for the Blues who sported two impressive marks coming in: they were 14-2-1 against Eastern Conference foes and 15-5-3 on the road.
 
None of that mattered as the Devils stunned the Blues with goals by Fayne and Carter only 2:51 in.
 
Fayne got it started with a high floater from the right point that eluded Brian Elliot at 2:27. It was the New Jersey defenseman's first goal in 25 games.
 
Carter followed 24 seconds later with a backhanded rebound.
 
Steen settled things momentarily for St. Louis with his career-high 25th goal to cut the Devils' lead to 2-1 at 8:47.
 
Jagr put New Jersey back up by two at 10:27 with his 697th career tally. The pass from Reid Boucher bounced off Jagr's left skate, and was affirmed by a video review.
 
Elliott was yanked about two minutes later, having surrendered three goals on nine shots. Jaroslav Halak came on in relief.
 
The first period ended with New Jersey up 3-1 thanks to a 13-6 shot advantage.
 
The Devils tacked on a pair of power-play tallies in the second, by Clowe at 1:03 and Henrique at 15:42, to expand the lead to 5-1.
 
Schneider, who had a relatively easy night, came up with perhaps his best stop midway through the middle period, denying David Backes when he was all alone in the slot.
 
In the third, Brunner added the Devils' third power-play tally at 1:18. Brunner was activated before the game from the injured reserve list after missing 14 games with a right knee injury.
 
Gelinas scored on a fluke, making it 7-1. He fired a shot from the red line that hit a Blues defender and bounced past Halak.
 
NOTES: Devils cleared roster space for Brunner by placing RW Cam Janssen on waivers. Janssen was assigned to Albany (AHL). ... The Blues remain in the New York area for games against the Rangers on Thursday and the Islanders on Saturday. ... Blues RW Vladimir Tarasenko missed a second straight game with the flu. ... The Devils invited fans in the top levels to "come on down" to the lower bowl to fill the available empty seats during a break in the first-period action. Fans also were offered a pair of tickets for an upcoming game. ... Henrique missed the third period with an undisclosed injury.

Zoo-Museum District told to tighten its oversight

Tuesday, 21 January 2014 10:32 Published in Local News
ST. LOUIS (AP) - The chairman of the aldermanic parks committee in St. Louis says the Zoo-Museum District board needs to "reinvent itself" and become a watchdog organization for taxpayers.
The district oversees the St. Louis region's five taxpayer-funded cultural institutions. Alderman Joe Roddy told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch that the institutions should be judged on their performance and earn their collective $70 million annually, rather than get the money automatically.
Roddy on Monday released a report concluding that both the Missouri History Museum and the Missouri Botanical Garden should overhaul their governance.
Roddy's investigation was fueled by questions about executive pay at the five museums - the Missouri Botanical Garden, St. Louis Art Museum, St. Louis Science Center, St. Louis Zoo and the History Museum.
 

Illinois goes Hollywood

Tuesday, 21 January 2014 10:26 Published in Local News
CHICAGO (AP) - Hollywood is spending big money in Illinois.
The state said Tuesday that the film industry generated $358 million in spending in the state during 2013. Officials say that easily surpasses the previous record of $184 million in 2012.
Chicago officials say filming last year included six TV series, three studio feature films and 137 commercials. Some of those projects include TV series like "Chicago Fire" and movies like the upcoming "Divergent" and "Transformers 4."
Gov. Pat Quinn's office says "Chicago fire" spent $58 million in 2013. "Chicago PD" has spent $21 million in Illinois.
The Chicago Film Office and Department of Cultural Affairs and Special Events cite a 20 percent increase in overall production compared with 2012. The city says 2012's numbers were 40 percent higher than 2011.
