Ahead of what could be the final game of this year's Stanley Cup Final series between the LA Kings and New York Rangers we take a look at just how the former find themselves with a 3-0 lead.
Here are the key moments in Game Three:
Jeff Carter of the Los Angeles Kings put the first goal in with one second left in the first period of Monday’s game. That turned out to be a goal the Rangers could not make up as the Kings pushed their opponents to the brink of elimination.
Jonathan Quick of the Kings proved why he is considered one of the best by making 32 saves in his first shutout and finest performance in this Stanley Cup Final.
After two overtime goals in Los Angeles, the Kings stole the first game in New York, and took control over the series as the Kings look to hoist their second Stanley Cup in three years. Only one team has ever come back from being down 3-0 in the Finals, so history is on their side.
The Rangers have not played poorly, and these games have been decided by a bounce of the puck either way.
The first goal was a buzzer beater by Jeff Carter that glanced off of Rangers defenseman Dan Girardi. The second of the three goals again ricocheted from the skate of Martin St. Louis of the Rangers.
The final goal came on an attempted cross that bounced off of the Rangers Ryan McDonagh directly back to Mike Richards for the goal.
Jonathan Quick is outshining Kenrik Lundqvist in a battle of All-World goalies. Quick turned away 32 of 32 shots, while Lundqvist let three of the 15 he faced.
Not even six power plays could rattle Quick, as he looks ahead at just the next game where the Kings look to sweep the series at Madison Square Garden in Game 4 on Wednesday.
