The game is also on CBC in Canadia.

Radio coverage: Y98FM

Alex Steen had a ricochet biscuit on Tuesday night...bow bow bow...



And in case you forgot what happened in Game 1...



KINGS at BLUES

(St. Louis leads best-of-seven series, 1-0)

TV: CNBC, CBC, FS-MW

Big story: If the Los Angeles Kings needed any reminder that it's not 2012 anymore, the St. Louis Blues served it to them with Tuesday’s 2-1 overtime win to open their Western Conference quarterfinal. Alexander Steen's second goal of the game, which came shorthanded at 13:26 of the first extra period, was the end result of a puckhandling mistake by goalie Jonathan Quick and marked the Blues' first win against the Kings in nine games, dating back to the 2011-12 regular season. The Kings swept the Blues in the second round of last year's Stanley Cup Playoffs.

Team Scope:

Kings: The defending Stanley Cup champions now encounter a scenario the 2012 team never had to face: a series deficit. Los Angeles led each of the four rounds 3-0 last spring en route to winning the title. The Kings did show some of last year's pluck in Game 1 when Justin Williams scored with 31.6 seconds left in regulation and Quick pulled for an extra attacker to tie the score.

They seemed to continue that momentum into overtime and had a golden opportunity when Dustin Penner drew a double high-sticking minor, but Quick gave the puck away behind his own net to undo what to that point had been a brilliant 40-save performance.

"He was outstanding," coach Darryl Sutter said of Quick. "I thought he played a great game. Kind of ironic the two best players on the ice were in on the goal."

Blues: The calendar has flipped to the month of May and St. Louis can only hope Brian Elliott continues to be close to as good as he was in April. Elliott carried his sparkling play from the end of the regular season into the series opener for the Blues, making 28 saves and just missing the first shutout of his playoff career.

Steen, who had one goal in 13 career postseason games prior to Tuesday, was a star on special teams. He opened the scoring 9:05 into the first period with a power-play goal, capitalizing on the rebound of a Kevin Shattenkirk shot. And several hours later, he was in the right place at the right time when he stole the puck from Quick behind the net and wrapped it around into an empty cage to send Scottrade Center into bedlam.

"It's a big start," Steen said. "I thought we came out with a lot of jump and played a solid three periods. Unfortunate goal to send it into overtime. I think we did a good job of regrouping in here because both teams kind of sat back a little bit in OT. It's a big win for us. Now we regroup [Wednesday] and go back at them in Game 2."

Who's hot: Kings defenseman Drew Doughty not only assisted on the tying goal with a great pass to set up Williams, he skated a game-high 31:38 in Game 1 and dished out four hits. … Steen's two goals Tuesday were a quarter of what he scored in 40 regular season games for the Blues. Elliott allowed one goal or fewer in 10 of his 13 April starts. Jaden Schwartz, who scored twice in the regular season finale, had a game-high six shots in his postseason debut.

Injury report: Los Angeles defenseman Matt Greene (undisclosed) missed Game 1 and is day-to-day. … St. Louis forward T.J. Oshie (ankle) returned to the lineup for the series opener and saw 18:01 of ice time.

If we can control the puck in this game like we did for (most of) Game 1, we can send this series to LA with a 2-game advantage. I'd rather not hit the road with the series even, k thx.

Any why the freakin' late start time? Some of us live on the east coast and work in the morning.

I'm assuming the late start time is to accommodate tv. But this kind of sucks. I wanted to watch the Wings-Ducks game after the Blues game...and now it looks like I'll only get to watch a little bit of it...assuming our game doesn't go into OT.
Maybe this will be one of those nights where I tune into the late game midway through the 3rd, and it ends up going 3 OT's...love that. :okman:

I hope they've watched a ton of the game tape from game one....it was two different games when they were taking the play to them and when they were playing not to lose.

Oshie said they got conservative and were just trying to protect the lead, Hitch says they were tied....WHATEVER.

Take the play to them all night tonight. If you don't want to 'give up the tie-ing goal', go score another goal and make them score two to tie.

We're going to need our second and third lines to play better tonight, I think we'll see a different Kings team.

Lame. Reaves had more than double the number of hits in 1/3rd the ice time.

Darryl Sutter = douche.

Darryl 'Beaker' Sutter said not wrote:“What grabs their attention is that they know several of our players can play better,” he said. “We got to overtime with really two lines and four defensemen. You’re not going to win very many games doing that.”


(Frank) them! GO BLUES!

I hope the Sens/Habs game doesn't go into overtime and is over quickly. I am going to be pissed If I miss a single second of the game tonight.

All I know is that the Blues and Kings teams I saw this last game were NOT the ones from last year and that's phenomenal news for the Blues.

Taking a 2-0 lead to LA would be insanely big. We play like we did last game and there should be no problem.

I'll be going to sleep after the first when the Blues get buried with a 3-0 deficient. Fluke game for the Blues on Tuesday.

Pissed at the late start, those of us elitist east coast pricks have to rise early to go to work, you know.

I'll watch the first period, hope we've secured a nice 4 or 5 goal lead by that point so I can at least rest easy. No predictions here, just franking win!

The number 1 priority tonight is letting Quick know EARLY that the Blues are not going to let him continue to grab and obstruct offensive players skating by the crease. The first time it happens, someone better knock him on his butt. He'll already be skittish after the OT mistake...if you get him on a swivel early, he might struggle.
