The New Jersey Devils had their best chances of the Stanley Cup Final in Game 3. Unfortunately for them, Los Angeles Kings goalie Jonathan Quick had his best game of the Final on Monday night.
He stopped all 22 shots he faced in the 4-0 win, his third shutout of the postseason and first since Game 2 against the Phoenix Coyotes. Quick now has a 1.36 GAA and a .950 save percentage. He has a shot at catching Marty Turco's 2007 record for playoff save percentage (.952) with another stellar performance in Game 4.
Quick provided nightmare fuel for the Devils in Game 3, thwarting a few chances that seemed tagged for the back of the net. Not only that, but two key saves led to Kings goals moments later.
Here are the five greatest stops from Quick's perfect Game 3 victory, which moved the Kings within a victory of their first Stanley Cup.
5. David Clarkson, Second Period
Clarkson made a nice move to spring the Devils on a 2-on-1. But as he was all game, Quick was there to stifle the Devils' chance before getting bowled over by Clarkson. Oh yeah; moments later, the Kings scored the game's first goal.
