The Blues entered the offensive zone and Chris Stewart, who had the puck, heard teammates Andy McDonald, with 18 playoff goals in his career, and Barret Jackman, with no playoff goals, calling for it.

So as Game 2 of the Western Conference series between the Blues and Kings sat tied and slipped under the final minute of regulation, how did Stewart's pass go to Jackman?

"Mac just asked me the same thing," Stewart said. "I just said, 'I had a feeling.'"

On a 3-on-2 rush, which Stewart said felt like the Blues' first odd-man entry of the game, Jackman took the feed and ripped it past Los Angeles goaltender Jonathan Quick, creating the second dramatic finish at Scottrade Center in as many games.

Was that Bobby Orr finishing off the Blues' 2-1 victory with 51 seconds remaining?

"Bobby Plager," Jackman joked. "I wasn't going to shoot, knowing the way my hands are. But I just tried to put it on net, past the (defenseman) and I don't know if (Quick) saw all of it. I had my eyes closed, so I didn't really see it, but the building erupted."

In Game 1 Tuesday, LA had the late goal in regulation that sent the crowd into silence. Two days later, Jackman's first-career postseason left the crowd of 18,681, well, jacked.

"Ecstatic," Stewart said. "So excited, especially when you see a heart-and-soul guy step up like that and get the game-winner."

The Blues now lead the best-of-seven series 2-0, as the teams head to LA for Game 3 Saturday night at Staples Center.
