Kings one win from carrying Stanley Cup

Posted:

The L.A. Kings are bulling their way through the Stanley Cup finals and now need just one victory to secure their first NHL championship in their 45-year history.

The eighth-seeded Kings mowed down the New Jersey Devils 4-0 on Monday night to take a 3-0 lead in the best-of-seven Stanley Cup final. Jonathan Quick posted his third shutout of the playoffs with 22 saves. He has allowed just two goals on 72 shots the entire series.

Alec Martinez and Anze Kopitar netted second-period goals for the Kings. Kopitar's goal was his eighth of the postseason, tying for the NHL lead. Jeff Carter and Justin Williams added third-period goals for the Kings.

The Kings are 15-2 this postseason. They have a 3-0 lead in their fourth straight playoff series -- a first in NHL history.

The Kings can wrap up the Stanley Cup with a victory at home in Game 4 Wednesday night. If they win in four, the Kings would be the first team since the 1998 Detroit Red Wings to win the cup in a sweep.
