Jonathan Quick made 31 saves as the Los Angeles Kings blanked the Edmonton Oilers 4-0 Sunday night.
The best-of-7 series is tied 2-2. Game five will be Tuesday at Rogers Place (630 CHED, Face-off Show 6 p.m., game at 8 p.m.).
The Kings took the lead eight minutes into the game. Phillip Danault drove the net and dropped a pass to Trevor Moore who flipped in his second of the series. Six minutes later, Troy Stecher’s shot ticked in off Duncan Keith’s stick to make it 2-0 Kings.
The Oilers had the game’s first power play in the second period, but the Kings had the best chance. Phillip Danault took the puck away from Tyson Barrie at the blue line and went in alone. Mike Smith came up with the save. Late in the second, Kailer Yamamoto’s shot glanced off Quick’s shoulder and hit the crossbar. Seconds later, Quick made a great save on Evander Kane. Quick made both stops despite having lost his glove on the play.
