Los Angeles, CA (Sports Network) - Jonathan Quick is getting hot at the right time, and his Los Angeles Kings are back in the conference semifinals.
Thanks to 21 saves from Quick and a Dustin Penner goal with just 0.2 seconds left in the second period, the Kings advanced with a 2-1 win over the St. Louis Blues in Game 6 of this Western Conference quarterfinal series.
Last year's Conn Smythe winner for guiding the Kings to their first Stanley Cup championship, Quick allowed just 10 goals in this series on 177 shots for the fifth-seeded Kings.
Drew Doughty notched the other marker for Los Angeles, which swept St. Louis in the semifinals last season.
Chris Porter had the lone goal while Brian Elliott gave up both goals on 16 shots for the Blues, who had won the first two games of this series before dropping the final four.
