Quick pushes Kings to brink of Stan­ley Cup

The Covington News - - THE WIRE -

NEW YORK (AP) — It turns out Jonathan Quick and the Los Angeles Kings are just as good with the lead as they are with­out it.

That leaves the New York Rangers with lit­tle hope of mak­ing much of a se­ries out of the Stan­ley Cup fi­nals.

Quick stopped 32 shots in his best start of the se­ries, Jeff Carter scored in the fi­nal sec­ond of the first pe­riod, Jake Muzzin and Mike Richards added goals in the sec­ond, and the Kings beat the Rangers 3-0 on Mon­day night to move within one win of their sec­ond Stan­ley Cup ti­tle in three years.

Los Angeles leads 3-0 and can claim the Cup on Wed­nes­day night in New York. The Kings have al­ready sur­vived three Game 7s on the road, so this amount of suc­cess has their con­fi­dence soar­ing.

Quick hardly showed it when he took the podium wear­ing a black hooded sweat­shirt.
