The Kings showed why they are here, by matching the skill of the Coyotes stride for stride in game one Sunday night emerging victorious 4-2. Dwight King had two goals, including an empty netter and Dustin Brown had an early third period goal which all but took the wind out of the Phoenix sails. Mikkel Boedker and Antoine Vermette netted goals for the losers.

One of the Coyote goals might be called a soft one, which is unusual for the Kings netminder, the aptly named Jonathan Quick. He has been steady as a rock these entire playoffs and is probably the main reason the Kings find themselves 3 wins away from that trip to the east coast in hopes of returning with Lord Stanleys Cup.

Quicks goaltending stats in the postseason are remarkable. In ten games played, he is 9-1 with a goals against average of 1.60, a save percentage of .947 with one shutout. That being said, Coyotes netminder, Mike Smith is right there, with an extra two games played, an 8-4 record, 1.87 GAA, and a .946 save percentage. Smith has two shutouts to his credit.
