Jarret Stoll scored at 4:27 of overtime as the visiting Los Angeles Kings eliminated the top-seeded Vancouver Canucks from their Western Conference quarterfinal series with a 2-1 victory in Game 5.

Brad Richardson tied the contest early in the third period and Jonathan Quick made 26 saves for the Kings, who won three road games in a playoff series for the first time in franchise history.

The Kings will take on the Central Division-champion St. Louis Blues in the conference semifinals.

Trevor Lewis forced Canucks defenseman Dan Hamhuis to cough up the puck just inside his own blue line. Stoll picked it up and rushed in on a 2-on-1 before beating Cory Schneider high to the stick side from the left faceoff circle, giving the Kings their first series win since 2001.

Vancouver got on the board during a power play with just under six minutes remaining in the first period. Hamhuis kept the puck in the offensive zone at the left point and dished it to Daniel Sedin, who made a cross-slot pass from the bottom of the right faceoff circle to twin brother Henrik for an easy tap-in.

The goal held up until early in the third.

Kings defenseman Drew Doughty carried the puck across the blue line and down the right side before throwing it in front. Richardson fired it past Schneider from a crowded doorstep at 3:21 to forge a 1-1 tie.

Each goaltender came up big on breakaways as Schneider stopped Anze Kopitar with one second left in the first period and Quick denied Daniel Sedin with 2:03 to play in the second.

Schneider stopped 35 shots for the Canucks, who have lost seven of their last nine conference quarterfinal games.
