Blues Try to Re-Gain Advantage TonightEL SEGUNDO, Calif. (AP) - Three games into the Los Angeles Kings' tremendously tense playoff series with the St. Louis Blues, it's clear the scores are so low because the stakes are so high.
Fourth-seeded St. Louis' imposing defense has allowed only three goals, out-muscling 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 tonight.
