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

He is, in my opinion, one of the best defensemen in the NHL and continuing to grow. I think his game, from an offensive standpoint, he continues to drive our offense... I think there's still tremendous upside for Oliver.

— Coyotes GM Don Maloney on defenseman Oliver Ekman-Larsson
