The Los Angeles Kings are one period away from owning a 3-0 series lead against the New York Rangers in the 2014 Stanley Cup Final, even if the level of play has been much closer than the most obvious numbers might indicate.
In Game 3, it’s all been about getting some positive bounces and some positively brilliant play from Jonathan Quick. He added to his collection of great saves in this game with a beauty of a save in the second period:
The Kings hold a towering 3-0 lead going into the third period. The Rangers will need a blistering 20 minutes to even have a chance of extending this game and avoiding a 3-0 series deficit. It doesn’t look like Quick is going to yield in this contest, though.
