The Los Angeles Kings are making the Stanley Cup Finals look a little too easy. The Kings won Game 3 Tuesday night in dominating fashion over the New Jersey Devils, putting themselves in position for a sweep following the 4-0 victory.
Though a barrage of goals helped the Kings to the victory, it was goaltender Jonathan Quick who earned praise following the game (thanks to saves like this) as he posted a 22-save shutout -- his third of the playoffs.
Jeff Carter and Justin Williams scored the final two goals in the third period to close out the game, though one could probably make the case that either Alec Martinez or Anze Kopitar's goals in the second period following a scoreless first were enough to do the trick.
The potential closeout game will happen Wednesday night at the Staples Center as the Kings attempt to go from barely making the postseason as the eighth seed to sweeping the championship series.
