The St. Louis Blues took a 3-2 series lead over the Winnipeg Jets on Thursday after Jaden Schwartz tipped Tyler Bozak's centreing pass past Connor Hellebuyck with 15 seconds left in the third period.

Schwartz's goal completed the Blues' comeback after they entered the final frame down 2-0 and saw the Jets drop to 0-3 on home ice in the series.

"Lucky pinballs," Hellebuyck said of Schwartz's goal post-game. "The puck just bounced and ended up right on their tape. Tough to eat that one, but I thought we were the better team. If we keep fighting here, it's not over."

The Jets opened the series with consecutive losses at Bell MTS Place before taking both games in St. Louis to even the series. They will face the Blues in a must-win Game 6 on Saturday.
