from Helene Elliott of the LA Times,
Quick was good enough. He stopped 23 shots and, before Jackman's effort, yielded only a goal that caromed off Patrik Berglund's foot at 3:44 of the third period.
The Kings' offense, though, wasn't nearly adequate. The Kings have scored two goals on Brian Elliott in two games: one after Quick was pulled for an extra skater in Game 1, and on Thursday a deflection by Dustin Brown of a Mike Richards shot at 9:55 of the first period during a five-on-three advantage.
"We haven't scored a five-on-five goal in almost seven periods," said Coach Darryl Sutter, who reunited the Brown-Anze Kopitar-Justin Williams line in a vain search for more scoring.
"It doesn't matter how you translate it. You're not going to win any games if you don't score five on five."
