LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Jonathan Quick made 22 saves in his third
shutout of the postseason, Anze Kopitar had a goal and an assist,
and the Los Angeles Kings rolled to the brink of the franchise's
first NHL title, beating the New Jersey Devils 4-0 in Game 3 of the
Stanley Cup finals on Monday night to take a 3-0 series lead.
Alec Martinez scored the opening goal, and Jeff Carter and
Justin Williams added late power-play goals as the Western
Conference champion Kings moved one win away from finishing one of the most spectacular playoff runs in league history.
Eighth-seeded Los Angeles improved to 15-2 in the postseason and
jumped to a 3-0 lead in its fourth straight series -- a first in NHL
Game 4 is Wednesday night at Staples Center.
