NHL: St. Louis 2, Los Angeles 1

May 3, 2013 at 12:45 AM   |   Comments

ST. LOUIS, May 3 (UPI) -- Barret Jackman scored with just 50 seconds remaining in regulation Thursday to give St. Louis a 2-1 win over Los Angeles and a 2-0 lead in their playoff series.

In the second straight dramatic contest between the Blues and Kings, St. Louis turned a third-period deficit into a victory.

The Kings will host the third and fourth games of the Western Conference quarterfinal series on Saturday and Monday.

St. Louis won the first game against the Kings in overtime and this contest appeared headed toward an extra session as well.

Jackman, however, rifled a slap shot past Jonathan Quick to end a goaltending duel. The other St. Louis goal came from Patrik Berglund on a tip-in 3:44 into the third period.

Los Angeles came up with its only goal midway through the first period on a power-play score from Dustin Brown.

Brian Elliott made 28 saves to claim the victory, his second in these playoffs. Quick stopped 23-of-25 shots.
