Anaheim Ducks vs. Los Angeles Kings Game 4: Keys for Each Team
Mark J. Terrill/Associated Press
The Ducks and Kings prepare to do battle in Game 4.

The Anaheim Ducks are back in the series after earning a 3-2 victory on the road Thursday night. The Los Angeles Kings won the first two games of the series in Anaheim. Thus far, neither team has scored more than three goals in a game in what has been a well-played, tight-checking series.

In Game 3, the Ducks finally got some pressure on Jonathan Quick. They scored twice on the power play and held on for a 3-2 win despite losing starting goalie Frederik Andersen to an injury midway through the third period. Andersen's status for Game 4 and the rest of the series remains up in the air.

The Kings became the team that held a large advantage in shots on goal but couldn't convert. Los Angeles had 31 shots on goal in Game 3 compared with only 22 for Anaheim, but the Kings only scored one goal in the first 59 minutes of the game.

The Ducks now trail 2-1 and look to even the series by winning Game 4, which starts Saturday night at 9:30 p.m. ET at the Staples Center in Los Angeles.

Here are the three biggest keys for each team to win Game 4. Feel free to comment on any of these or add one of your own. As always, indicate why you feel the way you do.
