Steen's late goal lifts Blues over Jets 3-2

Tuesday, 29 October 2013 23:31 Published in Sports

 

ST. LOUIS (AP) -- Alexander Steen scored a power-play goal with 59.4 seconds left to break a tie and Jaroslav Halak made 21 saves to lead the St. Louis Blues to a 3-2 win over the Winnipeg Jets on Tuesday night.

The Blues, who won their second in a row, have recorded points in five successive games. Winnipeg has lost five of six. The Jets finish a four-game road trip with a 1-2-1 mark.

The Jets beat St. Louis 4-3 in a seven-round shootout on Oct. 18 in Winnipeg. Halak improved to 7-1-1. He is 5-2 lifetime in seven starts against Winnipeg.

Brenden Morrow and Alex Pietrangelo also scored for the Blues, who improved to 5-1-1 at home. Bryan Little and Blake Wheeler tallied for the Jets.

Steen scored his league-leading 11th goal off a pass from Jay Bouwmeester. Steen has goals in each of his last five games. Little tied the game 2-2 at 10:27 of the third period with a shorthanded goal. He tipped in a pass from Andrew Ladd, who finished with two assists.

Pietrangelo wristed a shot behind goalie Ondrej Pavelec at 4:16 of the final period to give the Blues a 2-1 cushion. It was Pietrangelo's second goal of the season and only his 31st in 234 games covering six seasons.

The Blues jumped in front 1-0 on Morrow's goal early in the first period off the rebound of a shot by Ryan Reaves.

Winnipeg tied the game on the goal by Wheeler at 11:20 of the first period. The Jets broke an 0-for-26 power-play drought with the two-man advantage. Wheeler converted on a rebound of a shot by Ladd for the Jets first power-play goal in nine games.

Police urge extra vigilance on Halloween

Tuesday, 29 October 2013 10:05 Published in Local News

With Halloween just a couple of days away, St. Louis County Police want to remind residents to make it a time of treat rather than trick.  

Police are urging people to remember that Halloween is a time of high pedestrian and vehicle traffic and to remain cautious and aware while enjoying any festivities.

Officials say some important tips include, driving slowly through neighborhoods and having children stay in large groups as there is safety in numbers.

Staying in lighted areas is also a safety precaution.

County police chief Tim Fitch says they are offering Halloween Safety Centers and extra patrols throughout every precinct on Halloween night.

Seahawks' stand preserves 14-9 win over Rams

Monday, 28 October 2013 23:11 Published in Sports

 

ST. LOUIS (AP) -- The Seattle Seahawks completed a lousy night for St. Louis sports fans.

Russell Wilson threw two touchdown passes to Golden Tate, and the Seahawks made a dramatic goal-line stand in the final minute to preserve a 14-9 victory over the Rams on Monday night - less than an hour after the Cardinals lost to the Red Sox in the World Series just up the street.

The Seahawks (7-1), riding the best start in franchise history, were clinging to the lead when they were forced to punt with just over 5 minutes left in the game.

They managed to pin St. Louis at its own 3-yard line, but Kellen Clemens - starting at quarterback in place of the injured Sam Bradford - calmly marched the Rams (3-5) to the Seattle 1 as time wound down. Daryl Richardson was stuffed on third down, and Clemens threw a fade pass incomplete in the corner of the end zone on fourth down as time expired.

"The defense did a tremendous job, coming up with a huge stop there," Wilson said.

The Seahawks won despite gaining just 135 yards of total offense, 80 of it on Wilson's second TD pass to Tate, the third-fewest yards in a victory in franchise history.

Wilson was sacked a career-high seven times by the Rams defense.

"The defensive line, they were making plays," Wilson said. "We have to find a way to slow them down."

The World Series no doubt contributed to the stale atmosphere inside the Edward Jones Dome, where the announced crowd of 55,966 was in reality much smaller. Many of the fans who did show up wore Cardinals gear, and World Series highlights were shown on the big screen.

The Red Sox polished off their 3-1 victory in Game 5 just before the Rams embarked on their final drive - one that would ultimately leave the hometown crowd even more depressed.

Clemens finished with 158 yards passing for the Rams, but he also threw two interceptions, one of them to Richard Sherman. Zac Stacy ran for a career-high 134 yards.

"It's not always going to be pretty," Sherman said. "You have to be able to win ugly."

Greg Zuerlein staked St. Louis to an early lead with his first of three field goals, but Sherman's pick put the Seahawks in business. Seattle took advantage of his fourth interception of the season by scoring six players later, when Wilson hit Tate from the 2-yard line.

Zuerlein got the Rams within 7-6 late in the third quarter, but the Seahawks answered.

Two plays later, Wilson went deep down the sideline to Tate, who made an acrobatic leaping catch over Janoris Jenkins. Tate regained his balance and then mockingly waved at safety Rodney McLeod as he ran to the end zone, earning an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty.

Zuerlein connected again to get St. Louis to 14-9, but he missed a 50-yard field goal in the fourth quarter. That proved to be key because the Rams would have needed just another field goal from him on their final drive, rather than a touchdown, to steal the win.

The Rams stayed in the game largely thanks to their defense, which took advantage of the Seahawks missing starting offensive tackles Russell Okung and Breno Giacomini due to injuries. Robert Quinn had three sacks in the first half for St. Louis.

Seattle had minus-1 yard of offense in the first quarter, and 38 yards at the half, its fewest since gaining 37 in the first half against Kansas City in 1998, according to STATS LLC.

It didn't help that Seattle lost wide receiver Sidney Rice late in the first half with what the team called a knee injury. It wasn't clear which knee Rice hurt or when the injury occurred, but he headed to the locker room without his helmet and didn't return to the game.
