Jonathan Quick continues to steal the postseason spotlight for the second straight spring. The 2012 Conn Smythe Trophy winner blanked San Jose 3-0 Thursday night in Los Angeles, picking up his third shutout of these playoffs.
Quick stopped 24 shots, including 12 in the third period to earn his seventh career postseason shutout. Anze Kopitar, Jeff Carter and Slava Voynov each scored for the Kings.
Los Angeles has won 13 straight games on home ice, claiming a 3-2 series advantage in the Western Conference semifinals.
San Jose returns home for Game 6 facing elimination. The Sharks have suffered just two regulation losses at home in 2013 and defeated the visiting KIngs in Games 3 and 4.
Final: Los Angeles 3, San Jose 0
