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.
