After losing the first two games of the Western Conference Quarterfinal series against St. Louis, the Los Angeles Kings have roared back to win three in a row and push the Blues to the brink of elimination with a 3-2 overtime win on Wednesday night.

The game-winning goal came from defenseman Slava Voynov as he joined an odd-man rush and somehow snuck a shot through Blues goalie Brian Elliott.

Los Angeles now has a chance to close out the series on Friday night at the Staples Center.

Goaltending has been an issue for the Blues this season and that's not a goal you want to see your starter giving up in a key game of a playoff series.

The Kings, meanwhile, are starting to get on a roll at the right time.
