2012 NHL Playoffs, Kings Vs. Blues Score Update: Kings Lead 5-1 Going Into 3rd Period

The St. Louis Blues appear to be in heavy danger of dropping the first two games -- both at home -- of their second round series to the Los Angeles Kings. Through two periods of Game 2, the Blues trail the Kings 5-1.

LA scored outscored the Blues 4-0 in the first period. The second period saw each team score, which certainly gives St. Louis plenty of work to do in the final period.

Andy McDonald got St. Louis on the board just :30 seconds into the second. McDonald's fifth score of the year was off assists from David Backes and Kris Russell. It wouldn't take long for LA to answer back. Justin Williams scored just 1:26 into the second to make it 5-1 Kings. That's where we stand heading into the final period.
