ST. LOUIS (AP) – Defenseman Barret Jackman scored his first career playoff goal with 50.4 seconds remaining, lifting the St. Louis Blues to a 2-1 win over the defending Stanley Cup champion Los Angeles Kings for the second straight time Thursday night.

Jackman, a stay-at-home type who totaled three goals and 12 points in the regular season, joined a rush and scored in transition against Jonathan Quick, last year’s playoff MVP. He beat Quick from just inside the blue line for a 2-0 series lead heading to Los Angeles.

The Blues capitalized on a stickhandling goof by Quick to win the opener on Alex Steen’s short-handed goal in overtime.

Patrik Berglund’s deflection tied it early in the third period for St. Louis, which was swept by the Kings in the second round last season while getting outscored 15-6.

Dustin Brown scored for the Kings, who’ll try to rebound in Game 3 Saturday night.
