Fourth-seeded St. Louis' imposing defense has allowed only three goals, outmuscling the Kings' talented forwards and limiting their chances. The Blues are desperate to win just their second playoff series since 2002, and their play in front of Brian Elliott has reflected it.
But the defending Stanley Cup champion Kings have yielded just four goals, with Jonathan Quick posting a shutout in Game 3 to trim the Blues' series lead to 2-1. Los Angeles has nearly the same roster as last season's Cup-winning team, and the Kings are determined to show they weren't a fluke.
Game 4 is Monday night.
