A Quick and Costly Gaffe - Moments Live


On April 30th, 2013, the Los Angeles Kings took on the St. Louis Blues in Game 1 of the Western Conference Quarter-finals. Going into the series, the Kings had defeated the Blues in their nine previous tilts, a streak dating all the way back to Feb 3, 2012. That would change on this night however, as the Blues came out with all cylinders firing and would control the tempo of the game from the opening faceoff. Alex Steen would score at 9:05 of the 1st period to spot the Blues an early lead, a lead they would protect until the final minute of the third period, when Justin Williams would snipe home the Kings first goal of the series to tie the game. In OT, Kevin Shattenkirk was assessed a four-minute double-minor for high-sticking on Dustin Penner, this would give the Kings a chance to steal game one out of the Blues clutches. However, with Shattenkirk still in the box Steen would provide some more heroics, turning a Jonathan Quick gaffe into the game winning goal to give the Blues a 1-0 series lead.


With 1:48 remaining in the third period, win the game as the Los Angeles Kings. CAN YOU CHANGE HISTORY?
