ST. LOUIS - Alex Steen stole the puck from goalie Jonathan Quick behind the net and scored a short-handed goal to give the St. Louis Blues a 2-1 victory over the defending Stanley Cup champion Los Angeles Kings on Tuesday night.

Steen scored unassisted on a backhander at 13:26 of overtime less than a minute after Blues defenseman Kevin Shattenkirk was whistled for a double-minor high sticking when he cut Dustin Penner. Game 2 is Thursday night.

• Blackhawks 2, Wild 1, OT: In Chicago, Bryan Bickell scored in overtime on a two-on-one rush, and the Blackhawks started the playoffs on a winning note after dominating the regular season. Game 2 is Friday at the United Center.

• Ducks 3, Red Wings 1: In Anaheim, Calif., Teemu Selanne scored the tiebreaking power-play goal early in the third period and Jonas Hiller made 21 saves. Game 2 is Thursday at Honda Center.
