Lewis gives Kings unexpected offence with 2 goals in 4-1 win over Blues

ST. LOUIS - Trevor Lewis gave the Los Angeles Kings some unexpected offensive punch with two game-deciding plays early in the third period of a 4-1 victory over the St. Louis Blues on Thursday night.

Lewis set up Dwight King's go-ahead score on a deflection then got his first goal of the season on a short-handed wraparound, capitalizing on goalie Jaroslav Halak's stick-handling goof.

Jonathan Quick had 28 saves as the Kings snapped a five-game road losing streak in the opener of a five-game trip.

T.J. Oshie scored his first career goal on a penalty shot in the second period for the Blues, who snapped a five-game home winning streak. Oshie has 11 goals on the season and has five goals and four assists in his last six home games.

Quote of the Day

Not only is it a great idea, but if you don't [start using analytics] you're going to fall behind. You have to be on the cutting edge. It was [Arizona Coyotes assistant general manager] Darcy Regier who said, 'If you didn't invent it, you have to be the second- or third-best copier, because if you're fourth or fifth you've got no chance.'
