Ladies and gents, we have ourselves a series. And is it really any question that it'll go seven games?
Jeff Carter rallied the troops from a 2-0 deficit early with a sweet goal of his own, and Dustin Penner cashed in a few minutes later on one of the more perfectly executed three-on-ones you'll ever see.
Less than a minute later, Justin Williams deflected a shot past Elliott for the game-winner.
And just like that, we have a series.
Let's answer some questions we had before the game.
1. Will Game 4 take on the same attitude as the three previous games?
The hard hitting was there. But the scoring was off the charts compared with what we'd seen in the previous three games. At times the two teams abandoned their preferred grinding styles in favor of wide-open hockey. Neither squad played particularly inspiring defensive hockey.
2. Will the contest be decided by a single goal?
It sure did. And for awhile, it looked like the Kings would be on the losing end of it. But they managed to find a way to get past Brian Elliott in the end.
3. Will the Kings' face-off percentage improve?
The Kings improved on the face-off dot, winning 51 percent of their draws. Did it have a factor in the outcome? Yes. But not as much as the defensive lapses by the Blues.
