A seemingly harmless shot from defenseman Barret Jackman with 51 seconds remaining in the third period gave the St. Louis Blues a 2-1 triumph over the visiting Los Angeles Kings Thursday night.

Jackman's goal, from just inside the Kings' blueline, also gave the Blues a 2-0 lead in their opening-round, best-of-seven series against last season's Stanley Cup champions. Jonathan Quick, the Kings' goaltender, appeared to have been screened by teammate Drew Doughty on the rather weak shot from Jackman. Quick wound up wearing goathorns for the second time this series. He was at fault for a giveaway in overtime in the first game, which the Blues won 2-1. The Kings actually opened the scoring Thursday on a Dustin Brown goal midway through the first period but St. Louis tied the game at 1-1 on Patrik Berglund's first goal of the series. Assists on Berglund's goal went to Alex Pietrangelo and David Perron's, their first assists of the playoffs. Jackman's goal was his first in the playoffs and the assists on his goal were credited to Chris Stewart and Vladimir Sobotka. It was also their first assists in the post-season.

Jaden Schwartz suffered a broken foot in Tuesday's 5-2 win over Los Angeles.

He sustained the injury when he blocked a shot by Kings defenseman Drew Doughty in the first period, but he stayed in the game. Schwartz is out indefinitely and he's been moved to injured reserve. "Hopefully he gets better and is ready to go sometime after Christmas," coach Ken Hitchcock said. "We'll take a look at it on Monday." He has notched 11 goals and 27 points in 31 games this year.

Viktor Stalberg has been put on waivers by Nashville.

The Predators intend to send him to the minors if he clears. "A couple of injuries early in the season have prevented this from being the season Viktor trained all summer for," GM David Poile said. "He has worked hard to return to the lineup. With Paul Gaustad and Taylor Beck day-to-day and still on our 23-man roster, the best option for Viktor and the organization at this time is to place Viktor on waivers with the hope that he will clear, go to Milwaukee to play games and continue his efforts to be ready for NHL game action." Stalberg is ready to return after being sidelined for six weeks with a knee injury.

Sidney Crosby (mumps) will be a game-time decision for Thursday's match against Colorado.
