ST. LOUIS (AP) -- Derek Roy and David Backes scored power-play goals 2:31 apart in the second period to lead the St. Louis Blues to a 5-1 win over the struggling New York Islanders on Thursday night.

St. Louis won for the sixth time in eight games. The Islanders have lost eight straight overall (0-6-2) and eight in a row on the road.

Jay Bouwmeester, Magnus Paajarvi and Brenden Morrow also scored for the Blues, who improved to 12-1-2 at home and tied Boston (12-3-2) for the most home wins in the NHL. Jaroslav Halak made 22 saves and upped his record to 15-4-2.

Andrew MacDonald scored for the Islanders, who are 2-11-2 in their last 15 games.

Paajarvi added his second of the season just more than 5 minutes later.

New York goalie Anders Nilsson lost for the first time in regulation in his third start of the season.

Winning Powerball prize still to be claimed

Thursday, 05 December 2013 10:43 Published in Local News

If you bought a Powerball ticket in St. Louis County for last night's drawing, you may want to check your numbers as Missouri has a new millionaire. 

The winning ticket, worth $2-million, was sold at the Schnucks Market in the 10-thousand block of Manchester Road.

It matched all five white balls which were 6, 9, 11, 31 and 34. It was also subject to the Power Play, which doubled the value of the prize from one million to two million dollars.  

The winner has until June 4, 2014 to claim their prize.  

Illinois Governor due back pay

Thursday, 05 December 2013 09:49 Published in Local News

It was a little like forced savings, and now Illinois Gov. Pat Quinn is set to get about $74,000 in back pay.

While Illinois lawmakers were battling over the state's $100-billion pension shortfall, the governor used his line-item veto power this summer to halt legislators' salaries, saying they shouldn't get paid until they address the pension crisis.

The Governor also stopped accepting his own paychecks.  A judge disagreed with Quinn in September and the state comptroller began issuing checks to lawmakers. But Quinn still didn't accept his own salary.  

Lawmakers approved the pension reform plan this week and sent the measure to the Governor on Wednesday. Lee Enterprise newspapers in Springfield reports that Quinn's past pay checks have still not been requested from the comptroller's office.
