Ott-Lapierre-Reaves line is playing above its fourth-line status

ST. LOUIS -- The Blues got a scoring boost from an unlikely source to bring a positive end to their road trip over the weekend in Canada. Steve Ott, Maxim Lapierre and Ryan Reaves have found plenty of success in their main role of providing energy and physicality as St. Louis' fourth forward line. When they can add goals to the mix, as they did in wins over Ottawa and Winnipeg, the...

Rams reeling from rally-killing interception

ST. LOUIS -- Shaun Hill can relate to that nauseating sense of failure 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick carried off the field earlier this month when his goal-line fumble handed a victory to the St. Louis Rams. Now, it's Hill's turn to be humbled. The Rams (4-7) turned to the 34-year-old journeyman confident he wouldn't make the game-killing mistakes that dogged neophyte Austin...

Could have been worse: No. 2 Arizona too much for Mizzou in Hawaii

Not often is a 21-point loss by the Missouri Tigers considered a decent showing, especially in recent seasons. But times have changed in Columbia. There's a new coach, Kim Anderson, and a lot of new -- and young -- players. Under those circumstances, a 72-53 loss to the second-ranked Arizona Wildcats can't be viewed as that disappointing. The Tigers certainly did not embarrass themselves...

Arizona (4-0) has struggled shooting from the perimeter this season and had another rough day from behind the arc, hitting a couple shots late to finish 5 of 16 from 3-point range. The...

Among SLU's many freshmen, Davell Roby hasn't played like one

ST. LOUIS -- Not all freshmen arrive in the same state of readiness, as you learn when you watch a team that plays as many as the Saint Louis Billikens. There are those who look like they have yet to find the weight room. Marcus Bartley, for example, is a 6-foot-4 guard who could put on 25 pounds and still be thin. Bartley is a skilled enough ball-handler to handle the point, and...

Turnovers doom Rams again in heartbreaking loss at San Diego

The Rams offense took a step forward in its production Sunday, only to be thwarted by an all-too-familiar flaw. Chargers strong safety Michael Gilchrist intercepted Shaun Hill's final pass of the day in the endzone with less than a minute remaining, sending the Rams to another painful 27-24 loss in San Diego. Two other turnovers led to 10 easy points for the Chargers, including a...

SAN DIEGO -- Marcus Gilchrist intercepted Shaun Hill at the goal line with 56 seconds left to preserve the San Diego Chargers' 27-24 victory against the St. Louis Rams on Sunday. Gilchrist jumped the route as journeyman Hill tried to force a pass to Kenny Britt on second-and-goal from the 4. The Rams Hill had beaten Gilchrist on a 7-yard TD pass to Stedman Bailey with 2:04 left that...

Billikens stumble when it counts most in loss to Islanders

ST. LOUIS -- Nobody expected the Saint Louis University Billikens to go undefeated this season. But not many had them losing their first home game to one of those schools whose name is a mouthful, either. They did, though, falling to the Texas A&M-Corpus Christi Islanders 62-56 on Sunday afternoon. While the Islanders considered this the signature victory of Willis Wilson's four...

Tigers extend improbable road win streak behind another impressive defensive performance

Shane Ray and Mizzou's dominant defensive line figured to have a big day against the SEC's worst offensive line when it comes to protecting the quarterback. The Tigers' front four didn't disappoint, leading the defense to eight sacks and 13 total tackles for loss. They carried Mizzou to another impressive defensive performance in a 29-21 win at Tennessee likely to...

Blues try to salvage split of four-game trip with win in Winnepeg

The St. Louis Blues' offense woke up from a brief slump to help them avoid another loss. The Winnipeg Jets would like to see some of their stars do the same.

Steen lifts Blues to 3-2 win over Senators

OTTAWA, Ontario -- Clarke MacArthur had a simple explanation why the Ottawa Senators couldn't erase a one-goal deficit against the St. Louis Blues in the third period -- pure execution. Alex Steen's second-period goal stood up as the game-winner in the Blues' 3-2 victory over the Senators on Saturday. "They're making hockey plays and we're not," MacArthur...

Scoring a problem, but Blues must clean up defensive zone, too

Ken Hitchcock has watched his St. Louis Blues struggle to score to begin their road trip, but he's more concerned with their lackluster play in their own zone. The Blues look to get both aspects of their game corrected while avoiding a third consecutive defeat Saturday against the Ottawa Senators. St. Louis (12-6-1) had won 10 of 11 and scored 14 goals while winning three straight...

Beating NFL behemoths is nice; for Rams, consistency would be better

ST. LOUIS -- Last week's win over Denver confirmed once again the Rams can beat just about anyone. Their next challenge will be proving it on a weekly basis. Coach Jeff Fisher says his staff doesn't talk about it, but the players are surely aware they haven't put together two straight wins all season despite knocking off three of the four conference title game participants...

Pacers' George making progress in recovery

INDIANAPOLIS -- Paul George has endured some demoralizing moments as he recovers from a broken right leg. He'd prefer to dress in shorts and a tank top instead of street clothes. He'd rather travel with his Indiana teammates than be left behind, watching the games on TV. And, in a perfect world, he'd be helping the short-handed Pacers win games rather than advising them how to win...

On this young Billikens team, everybody plays, every game

They've played only two games and the rotation figures to be reduced as the team evolves but so far, if you suit up for the Billikens, you better be ready to play. Twelve players have taken the court...

Rams' defense starting to live up to expectations

ST. LOUIS -- Rodney McLeod lowered the boom, legally, with a perfectly timed, shoulder-to-shoulder hit on Broncos wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders. The pass breakup on a deep sideline route sent Sanders off to be examined for concussion-like symptoms, but that wasn't the point. The St. Louis Rams' hopes for a late-season rally rest on a defense that's been making its presence felt...
