Posted:

After eliminating top-seeded Vancouver from the Western Conference playoffs in five games, the Kings have swept St., Louis in the second round.

Dustin Brown scored two goals and Jonathan Quick made 23 saves in a 3-1 Game 4 victory over St. Louis that helped eighth-seeded Los Angeles move into the Western Conference finals.

In the other playoff series Sunday night, the New Jersey Devils have grabbed a 3-1 lead over the Flyers in their Eastern Conference semifinal with a 4-2 win, their third straight victory over Philadelphia. The Devils spotted Philly an early 2-0 lead, then stormed back with four unanswered goals. Dainius Zubrus  scored twice. Petr Sykora and Marek Zidlicky also scored for the Devils, who can advance to their first conference final since 2003 with a win in Philadelphia on Tuesday night.

New Jersey has never lost a playoff series after taking a 3-1 lead.
