Jori Lehtera scored the game-winner in Sunday's 2-1 win over the Sharks in Game 1 of the Western Conference Final.

With the scored tied 1-1 in the second period, Lehtera's innocent looking shot found its way behind Sharks goalie Martin Jones. Lehtera will get the credit, but there's no doubt that Jones will want to have that goal back. The 28-year-old has two goals and seven points in 15 postseason games in 2016. David Backes also found the back of the net for the Blues. They lead the best-of-seven series 1-0. They're three wins away from going to the Stanley Cup Final.
