Steen's Shorty Sends Blues Past Kings In OT

Alexander Steen stole the puck from goaltender Jonathan Quick behind the net and scored shorthanded in overtime to give the Blues a 2-1 win over the Kings. Steen also opened the scoring just over nine minutes into the game for St. Louis. Brian Elliott made 28 saves in the victory. Game Two of the best-of-seven series is tomorrow night.

T.J. Oshie returned the lineup for the Blues last night in their Game One win over Kings. Oshie underwent left ankle surgery on April 16th. The 26-year-old had seven goals and 13 assists in 30 games this season. He took the place of rookie Vladimir Tarasenko in the lineup. Oshie was a minus-one in just over eight minutes of ice time.
