Video: Kings avoid ‘daunting task’ thanks to Williams’ winner

May 7, 2013, 2:33 AM EDT

Justin Williams has shown an ability to score timely goals in this series between the L.A. Kings and St. Louis Blues.

In Game 1, he scored late in the third period to send the game to overtime. On Monday, the Kings’ forward scored on a deflection that proved to be the winner in a 4-3 victory for L.A.

Considering the scores of the first three games (2-1; 2-1; 1-0), Monday was an offensive outburst.

The series is now tied two games apiece. The Williams goal, a deflection in front of the Blues’ net, was reviewed, but was deemed a good goal.

“Going back to St. Louis down 3-1, would have been an extremely daunting task to overcome,” Williams told the L.A. Times.

“I’m not saying it wasn’t doable, but now we feel a lot better about ourselves. We feel a lot better having some guys put it in the back of the net tonight that need to score. And pushing them back.”
