- The NHL on Sunday suspended Chicago defenseman Brent Seabrook for three games because of his hit to the head of the Blues' David Backes late in game two of their playoff series on Saturday. Seabrook also received a five-minute penalty and a game misconduct after the hit. The Blues got the game-tying goal from Vladimir Tarasenko during the penalty and then won the game in overtime on a goal by Barret Jackman.
- The win put the Blues ahead two games to none in the series. Game three is Monday night in Chicago.
- Denard Span hit a sacrifice fly off Seth Maness in the ninth inning Sunday to lift the Nationals to a 3-2 win over the Cardinals in Washington, D.C. The Nationals had rallied from a 2-0 deficit to tie the game in the seventh against Carlos Martinez.
- The Cardinals will be in New York on Monday for the final stop on their road trip with the first of four games against the Mets. Tyler Lyons will be promoted from Triple A Memphis to make the start.
