Found May 11, 2013 on Diehardsport:
The Los Angeles Kings were up 3-2 in their series with the St. Louis Blues heading back to LA for a potentially series ending game six.  With less than ten seconds left in the second period, the St. Louis Blues turned the puck over in the neutral zone and Kings forward Dustin Penner picked up the puck and walked into the Blues zone.  He had barely crossed the blue line when he fired a clapper that beat Brian Elliot short side high blocker with 0.2 seconds left. The Blues lost all momentum with that goal and went on to lose the game 2-1.  The Los Angeles Kings will either play the Chicago Blackhawks or the San Jose Sharks in the next round, depending on the outcome of the Red Wings-Ducks series.
