LOS ANGELES (AP) — Jonathan Quick made 41 saves, Dustin Brown scored on a long rebound with 13:30 to play, and the eighth-seeded Los Angeles Kings pushed the Vancouver Canucks to the brink of elimination with a 1-0 victory in Game 3 on Sunday night.

Brown’s fourth goal of a stellar series put the Kings one win away from their first playoff series victory since 2001. He also put the two-time Presidents’ Trophy-winning Canucks on the edge of a shocking playoff departure.

Quick hung on for his second career playoff shutout after setting a club record with 10 in the regular season, and the Kings snapped a five-game playoff losing streak at Staples Center in front of a sellout crowd starved for playoff success.

Game 4 is Wednesday night.
