Kings vs. Blues Game 2 Recap: Jackman wins it for St. Louis

Another questionable goal allowed by Jonathan Quick gave the game to the St. Louis Blues.

The St. Louis Blues have taken a 2-0 series lead over the defending Stanley Cup Champion Los Angeles Kings.

The Blues spent most of the game trailing after a first period goal from Dustin Brown, but managed to get the equalizer at 3:44 of the third period on this goal from Patrik Berglund:


The Blues were holding their breath midway through the period after Brian Elliott looked to be shaken up on this collision with Dustin Brown:


After some stretching and skating, though, Elliott looked to be okay, and remained in the net.

Jonathan Quick's strong play had been the story of the game in the first two periods, but just like in game one of the series he'll be facing some criticism for allowing this game-winning goal from Barret Jackman:


That shot might have changed direction a bit, but it still looked like one that Quick needed to stop. It was Jackman's first career playoff goal.

The Kings didn't have a shot on goal in the third period for the first ten minutes of the frame, though they had the edge in shots in the game overall, 29-25.

The series will continue in Los Angeles on Saturday.
