Game 6: Penner scores winner as Kings finish off Blues

Dustin Penner scored the tiebreaking goal in the final second of the second period, and the Los Angeles Kings advanced to the second round with a 2-1 victory over the St. Louis Blues in Game 6 on Friday night.

Jonathan Quick made 21 saves and Drew Doughty scored his first goal of the post-season for the defending Stanley Cup champions, who won four straight to finish off fourth-seeded St. Louis.

Penner put the Kings ahead with his latest big playoff goal, ripping a slap shot from just inside the blue line past Brian Elliott right before time expired.

Elliott stopped 14 shots and Chris Porter scored his first career playoff goal for the Blues, who were eliminated by Los Angeles for the second straight season, this time despite taking a 2-0 series lead.
