St. Louis, MO (Sports Network) - Slava Voynov scored the winner eight minutes into overtime as the Los Angeles Kings took a 3-2 win over the St. Louis Blues in Game 5 of this Western Conference quarterfinal series.

Justin Williams picked up the puck in his own zone and skated down the left wing before passing the disc over to Anze Kopitar just before gaining the blueline. Kopitar then took it through the middle and fed it over to his right where Voynov let fly with a low wrister that beat Brian Elliott for the victory.

Jeff Carter scored twice while Mike Richards added two assists for the Kings, who now hold a 3-2 lead in this best-of-seven series.

Jonathan Quick turned away 34 points to help Los Angeles head home for a potential series victory on Friday in Game 6.

Alexander Steen and Alex Pietrangelo each posted a goal for the Blues, who got 22 stops from Elliott.
