Kings take game four against Blackhawks

LA Kings Vs Blackhawks

KINGS 5 HAWKS 2

After another dominating victory the Los Angeles Kings are now on the brink of another visit to the Stanley Cup Finals, their second in three seasons. Behind a three-goal first period barrage the Kings jumped on top of the Chicago Blackhawks early and never looked back, winning 5-2. For nearly two seasons the Blackhawks, and goalie Corey Crawford, had the Kings number defensively. In three straight impressive victories the Kings have turned it all around, scoring fifteen goals in the past three games for a commanding lead. With the series returning to Chicago for a game five, the Kings will now have three opportunities to eliminate Chicago.

Monday’s win was another impressive display off both offensive and defensive hockey. The Kings, known for their defense, have become the top scoring team in the playoffs, while still playing efficient and effective defense behind a veteran unit of blue-liners and goaltender Jonathan Quick. Jake Muzzin, Marian Gaborik and Dustin Brown all scored in a six-minute stretch of the first period, giving Los Angeles a 3-0 lead and eventual victory. Drew Doughty and Tanner Pearson would also add score in the second and third periods as the Kings preserved their three goal lead. After largely getting the balance of their offense from the Kopitar and Gaborik line in the opening round against the San Jose Sharks, the Kings have become a balanced offensive juggernaut versus Chicago, with offense coming from nearly every line and the defense. Los Angeles now has eight players with double figures in points this postseason. Goaltender Jonathan Quick made 22 saves in the victory.

The Kings offensive barrage is particularly surprising since they were the lowest scoring team to make the postseason. After trailing 2-0 late in game two in Chicago, the Kings have scored 13 goals in just over 100 minutes of hockey, a dominating performance that has the Chicago Blackhawks looking for answers. In accomplishing this offensive outburst the Kings now may have the mental edge on Crawford, a player who’s consistently stymied them in recent seasons. Crawford stopped just sixteen shots in the loss.

Blackhawks Vs LA Kings

CRAWFORD

The Blackhawks will now have to fight their way back from a 3-1 deficit, something they accomplished last season versus the Detroit Red Wings. Coming from behind two games will be a tall task versus a confident Kings team. Last year’s Blackhawks and Red Wings matchup was an opening round one versus eight affair, not a Western Conference Finals. In order to beat the Kings the Blackhawks will need to find some confidence on defense, something that has seemingly evaporated as they’ve been outscored 15-7 over the last three games. Chicago will also need offense from Patrick Kane, who’s managed just one point in the series. Kane’s struggles have been mirrored by Bryan Bickell, a hero in last year’s postseason who had a sub-standard regular season and has struggled this series, with only a goal on Monday night.

Game five is Wednesday night in Chicago at the United Center.

KINGS 1, CANUCKS 0: Dustin Brown scored 6 1/2 minutes into the third period and Jonathan Quick made 41 saves as Los Angeles pushed the Presidents’ Trophy winners to the brink of elimination in their Western Conference quarterfinal series.

Justin Williams and Anze Kopitar each notched an assist for the Kings, who own a 3-0 series lead for the first time in franchise history. They try to complete the sweep at home on Wednesday.

Brown, who drew the ire of the Canucks for a hit on Henrik Sedin early in the second period that temporarily knocked the Vancouver captain out of the game, gave Quick all the offensive support he needed with his fourth goal of the series.

Williams’ shot from the top of the right faceoff circle was stopped by Cory Schneider. But the rebound went right to Brown, and the LA Kings‘ captain buried it from the bottom of the left circle for a 1-0 advantage.

Quick turned aside 11 shots in the first period, 14 in the second and 16 in the third for his second career postseason shutout. The 26-year-old led the NHL with 10 regular-season shutouts.

Schneider made 19 saves for the Canucks, who had just four power-play opportunities while giving the Kings eight chances.

GAME NOTEBOOK: All-Star defenseman Alex Edler essentially ended Vancouver’s comeback chances when he fired the puck over the glass for a delay-of-game penalty with 97 seconds remaining in the third period. … While registering 41 shots, the Canucks had another 23 attempts blocked. … Drew Doughty led the Kings in ice time for the third straight game, logging 25 minutes, 56 seconds. Vancouver’s Kevin Bieksa played the exact same amount, while teammate Dan Hamhuis saw 28:19 of action. … Kobe Bryant of the Lakers and David Beckham of Major League Soccer’s L.A. Galaxy were in attendance.

March 3rd 7:30pm

KINGS Vs DUCKS 4, 2: Jeff Carter scored twice in his home debut and Jonathan Quick made 29 saves as Los Angeles moved to within one point of a playoff spot and damaged the Anaheim Ducks postseason chances.

Carter, who was acquired from the Columbus Blue Jackets prior to the trade deadline, broke a 1-1 tie when he roofed a rebound early in the second and wired a wrist shot past Jonas Hiller later in the period to make it 3-1.

Captain Dustin Brown scored in the first period, Mike Richards notched three assists and Anze Kopitar added an empty-netter for Los Angeles, which has won three of its last four games.

Rookie Devante Smith-Pelly and defenseman Sheldon Brookbank scored for the Ducks, who remain seven points out of eighth place with 16 games to play.

Brown collected the puck near Hiller’s pad after a shot by Alec Martinez and patiently found room inside the right post at 12:15 for his sixth goal in the last six games.

Brookbank tied it 3:27 later when his shot from the point fluttered through traffic and over Quick’s right shoulder.

Hiller stopped Brown’s shorthanded breakaway early in the first period.

Recap Kings Vs Wild February 28 2012

KINGS Vs WILD Backup Jonathan Bernier turned aside 26 shots for his first shutout of the season to lift visiting Los Angeles over Minnesota.

Justin Williams and Anze Kopitar had a goal and an assist apiece to help the Kings climb into a tie with Dallas Stars and Colorado Avalanche for the No. 8 spot in the Western Conference.

Dwight King and Alec Martinez also tallied and Dustin Brown and Matt Greene contributed two assists apiece as Los Angeles won for only the second time in seven games.

Williams triggered a three-goal first period when a shot by Slava Voynov deflected off his body and past Niklas Backstrom only 44 seconds into the game.

GAME NOTEBOOK: The Kings, who entered with a league-low 130 goals, had been limited to one goal or fewer in eight of the previous 12 games.

AVALANCHE 4, KINGS 1: Paul Stastny scored twice and Semyon Varlamov turned aside 32 shots as Colorado completed its first season sweep of Los Angeles in 19 years.

Mark Olver scored for his third point in as many games since being recalled from Lake Erie of the American Hockey League. Jay McClement also tallied for the Avalanche, who moved to within two points of the eighth-place Kings in the Western Conference.

All-Star Jonathan Quick was pulled after yielding three goals on 11 shots for Los Angeles, which has dropped four in a row and is 2-6-2 in its last 10 games.

After Olver opened the scoring at 7:04 of the first period, Stastny doubled the advantage exactly six minutes later after taking advantage of Kyle Clifford’s turnover before beating Quick to the post on a wraparound.

McClement’s deflection beat Quick to cap the first-period onslaught and Stastny cleaned up a rebound for his 16th goal of the season midway through the second.

Captain Dustin Brown ended Varlamov’s bid for his third shutout of the season and seventh career by deflecting Drew Doughty’s shot 4:35 into the third period. The tally was his 15th of the season and second in as many nights.

GAME NOTEBOOK: Stastny has collected two multi-goal games this campaign and 15 in his career. … Los Angeles swept Colorado in the series last season.
