A St. Louis County family has its Christmas back, thanks to fast work from the Normandy Police Department.
 
Two suspects broke into the Lilly family home on Dec. 15 and stole the presents from under the Christmas tree. The thieves even unwrapped the presents and left the paper.
 
Police say clues came together fast, including footprints in the snow. Officers saw the same prints outside another home that had been broken into days earlier.   When one of the alleged thieves bragged about it at Sumner High School, word filtered back to police. That 18-year-old suspect was arrested and charged.  
 
Police are still searching for his accomplice.

CALGARY, Alberta (AP) -- Joe Colborne scored the only goal of the shootout to give the Calgary Flames an improbable 4-3 come-from-behind win over the St. Louis Blues on Monday night.
 
Colborne took the first attempt in the shootout and beat Jaroslav Halak on a deke for his third goal on four attempts this season in the tiebreaker.
 
Reto Berra turned aside T.J. Oshie, Derek Roy and Magnus Paajarvi in the shootout to earn the win. Mark Giordano forced overtime by dramatically scoring the tying goal with five seconds left in the third period.
 
Patrick Berglund's holding penalty gave Calgary a power play with 1:37 left, and Flames coach Bob Hartley added more pop by pulling Berra for a 6-on-4 skating edge.
 
Jiri Hudler's long diagonal pass was hammered in from the faceoff dot by Giordano, who one-timed a blistering slap shot past Halak to send the sellout crowd into a frenzy.
 
Hudler and Mike Cammalleri also scored for Calgary (14-17-6), which kicked off a five-game homestand. The Flames snapped a three-game losing streak.
 
Kevin Shattenkirk, Jaden Schwartz and Paajarvi scored for the Blues (24-7-5), which took three out of four points in Alberta and are 5-1-2 in their last eight.
 
The Flames have battled injuries all season, and there were more announced on Monday. Left wing Curtis Glencross (high ankle sprain) and former Blues defenseman Kris Russell (sprained knee), will be out for an extended period after they were hurt at Pittsburgh on Saturday in the final stop of a five-game trip.
 
St. Louis scored the lone goal of the first period, just eight seconds into its first power play.
 
Off a faceoff win deep in the Flames end, the Blues worked the puck around. Brendan Morrow's nifty cross-ice backhanded pass landed on the stick of Shattenkirk, who broke in from the blue line and scored his fifth goal of the season into the open side.
 
Schwartz scored through a screen as the Blues took a 2-1 lead less than two minutes after Hudler tied it at 12:06.
 
Just 44 seconds later, the Blues increased their lead to two on a goal from their high-energy fourth line.
 
Berra's pass around the boards was intercepted by Adam Cracknell, who zipped a pass to Maxim Lapierre in the slot. Lapierre's shot was stopped, but Paajarvi corralled the rebound and stuffed in his third goal.
 
The Flames cut the deficit to 3-2 at 11:05 of the third when Paul Byron set up Cammalleri from behind the net for his team-leading 12th goal.
 
Berra made 32 saves to improve to 5-8-2. Halak stopped 26 stops and fell to 17-6-3.
 
NOTES: Glencross, who earlier missed 15 games with a knee injury, will be out for eight weeks. Russell will be sidelined 4-to-6 weeks. Taking Russell's spot on the Calgary blue line was Chris Breen. ... With Alex Steen (upper body) out for the Blues, 20-year-old Dmitrij Jaskin, recalled from Chicago (AHL), made his season debut. He played alongside Oshie and David Backes. ... Only Hudler, T.J. Brodie and Chris Butler have played in each of Calgary's 37 games.
