LOS ANGELES -- From the opening minutes to St. [url=http://www.2013blackfridaythenorthface.com/]North Face Black Friday 2013[/url] . Louis final flurries, Jonathan Quick played every puck with the desperate determination necessary to win the Stanley Cup. Even when the crease-crashing Blues knocked his mask off his head, the Kings gritty goalie kept his focus on a win that got Los Angeles back into a tense first-round series dominated by defence. Quick made 30 saves in his fifth career playoff shutout, leading the Kings to a 1-0 victory Saturday night and trimming the Blues series lead to 2-1. Slava Voynov scored in the second period for the defending NHL champions, who got a brilliant performance from their Conn Smythe Trophy-winning goalie. After making self-described mistakes that led to both of the Blues winning goals in St. Louis, Quick won his duel with Brian Elliott, who stopped 20 shots. "Its what you expect when these two teams play each other," Quick said. "They were just throwing pucks from everywhere, but we handled it well and cleaned up most of the rebounds." Los Angeles will attempt to even the series in Game 4 on Monday night. After struggling on the power play and getting bad luck on a handful of chances, St. Louis even resorted to more unconventional means to mess with Quick. David Perron appeared to dive into Quick in the crease in the third period, with Quicks mask coming off his head in an exchange that ended with the Blues getting a power play, thanks to Drew Doughtys overreaction. None of it could throw Quick off the formidable game that carried the Kings to the Cup last season. "Quickie had to be really good for us tonight, but the way he played is no surprise to anybody," Kings captain Dustin Brown said. The Blues power play hasnt scored in 12 straight opportunities since early in the series opener, and they wasted plenty of good chances against Quick in Game 3. Elliott has allowed just three goals in the series, but Quick kept the Kings unbeaten at home since March 23. "Youre not going to get very many games like this where you get this many quality chances on the road," St. Louis coach Ken Hitchcock said. "We were unlucky, more than anything." Staples Center was packed with black-clad, towel-waving fans who fondly remember the Kings nearly surreal run through last springs playoffs. Eighth-seeded Los Angeles went 16-4 in the post-season, beating the Western Conferences top three seeds and taking a 3-0 lead in every series -- an NHL first -- on the way to its first Stanley Cup title. The Kings never faced an elimination game or even a tight spot last spring, but the fourth-seeded Blues immediately put them in a jam in this series with consecutive victories at home. Quick sought the blame for both losses after allowing the overtime winner in the opener and a last-minute goal in Game 2, but his teammates realized they deserved the blame for their meagre offensive effort against Elliott, who got outplayed by Quick in last years playoff series. "Its the time to stay even-keeled, because these games are all going to be close," Elliott said. "Every play gets amped up, and youve got to take care of details." The scoreless, tight-checking first period of Game 3 reflected the nervousness in the arena. After Los Angeles killed off a penalty early in the second, Voynov capitalized on a lengthy scramble in front of Elliotts net, putting a shot through traffic into the far corner for the Russian defencemans first playoff goal since last seasons second-round series opener against St. Louis. The Blues largely dominated puck possession and good scoring chances for long stretches of the final two periods. Alexander Steen, who scored both of the Blues goals in Game 1, inexplicably couldnt put it into a fairly open net on a power play late in the period, shanking his shot. During Perrons shenanigans in the third, Doughty followed Perron into the net and slugged the Blues forward several times, drawing a double minor for roughing and putting St. Louis on a fruitless power play. Perron and Quick have jawed throughout the series, and Perron claimed the Blues were "starting to get to" Los Angeles star goalie after Game 2. Elliott kept the Blues in it with less than 7 minutes left, stopping Dwight King on a clean breakaway. Justin Williams then saved the Kings with about 5 minutes left, diving to knock away a loose puck on the edge of the crease. "When it gets late in the game like that, youre trying everything you can to stop the puck," Williams said. "The story for us was Jonathan Quick, though. Thats the difference for us." St. Louis was swept out of the second round in four games last spring by Los Angeles, which outscored the Blues 15-6 while ending their breakthrough season under Jack Adams Trophy-winning coach Ken Hitchcock. The Blues turned in another strong regular season this winter, even surging past Los Angeles and San Jose into the fourth playoff seed in the final days. The Kings went 19-4-1 at home this season, posting the best points percentage at home in franchise history. They finished the regular season with seven straight wins at Staples Center. NOTES: The Kings scratched C Jordan Nolan and dressed D Alec Martinez, who hadnt played since April 2. Martinez, who picked up an assist on Voynovs goal, was a key member of last seasons defensive group, but fell out of favour in March after his return from an upper-body injury. Los Angeles dressed seven defencemen. ... St. Louis used the same lineup from its first two victories. ... The Kings have rallied from a 0-2 series deficit just once in franchise history, beating Detroit in 2001. [url=http://www.2013blackfridaythenorthface.com/]North Face outlet[/url] . New York scored six runs off Baltimore starter Chris Tillman (0-1) in the first two innings, then held on to win. Yankees starter A.J. Burnett (3-0) got through six innings without incident, but gave up two-run shots to Matt Wieters and Brian Roberts with one away in the seventh before being pulled. [url=http://www.2013blackfridaythenorthface.com/]cheap North Face Jackets[/url] . - Radim Vrbata had been plagued for two weeks by an allergic reaction to penicillin.LEXINGTON, Ky. -- Kentucky received the news it dreaded Wednesday when freshman forward Nerlens Noel was declared out for the season with a torn ligament in his left knee. Noel tore his ACL on Tuesday night when No. 25 Kentucky lost at Florida. An MRI revealed the injury, and the 6-foot-10 forward will have surgery in the next two or three weeks. The projected recovery period is six to eight months. Noels injury deals a serious post-season blow for the defending national champions, who had appeared to be gaining some footing after struggling earlier this season while trying to blend in four freshmen. Leading the way defensively for the Wildcats was Noel, who began Tuesday first in the nation with 4.5 blocks per game. The rookie took a positive approach to the diagnosis, posting on Twitter, "Minor setback for a MAJOR comeback! I love you all and cant thank yall enough for the prayers." Noel was hurt with 8 minutes left in the Wildcats 69-52 loss to the seventh-ranked Gators. He ran into the basket support after blocking a layup from behind. Noel landed awkwardly, dropped to the floor and started screaming while clutching his knee. Noel had eight points, six rebounds and three blocks before the injury. "Ive been coaching for 22 years and this is the first injury weve had of this kind during the season, which makes it even more devastating," Kentucky coach John Calipari said in a statement. "I met with Nerlens earlier today. The meeting was really positive, and I loved his attitude. The way he is already dealing with this injury lets me know that he is going to come back stronger than ever. ... Obviously this is not a career-ending injury and its one that athletes bounce back from all the time." The question is if Kentucky (17-7, 8-3 Southeastern Conference) can bounce back from the devastating loss. With Noel out, 7-footer Willie Cauley-Stein now must man the post for Kentucky after spending most of the season as Noels backup. Cauley-Stein missed four games last month after having a procedure on his left knee, an absence that meant even more minutes for Noel. The Everett, Mass., native clearly relished the extra work, which gave him a chance to display an array of skills. Besides his shot-blocking prowess, Noel was averaging 10.6 points, 9.5 rebounds and 2.1 steals per game, with the latter two statistics both ranking 26th nationally. He entered the game with three consecutive double-doubles and on a four-week run as the conferences top freshman. In his previous five games, Noel had blocked 26 shots. While Kentucky has lacked a bona fide team leader, there was no doubt that the Wildcats seemed to feed off of Noels intennsity and athleticism. [url=http://www.2013blackfridaythenorthface.com/]cheap North Face sale[/url]. Caliparis wish has been for other players to display those some traits. Now, the Wildcats have to rework the rotation without their biggest star. Kentuckys tallest player besides Cauley-Stein is 6-10 sophomore Kyle Wiltjer, whose game had recently blossomed along with Noels. Former Wildcats centre Sam Bowie believes the injury might initially affect the teams psyche, especially with so many young players. "His teammates will start to second-guess themselves, and thats just human nature," Bowie said. "You always say, Well regroup; people have to step up and take their games to another level, and thats been the politically correct thing to say, but realistically speaking it will affect the team mentally." Considered the nations top recruit last season, Noel led a four-man freshman class also including Archie Goodwin and Alex Poythress that was expected to pick up where last years championship team left off. Noel has often been compared to national player of the year Anthony Davis because of his size and shot-blocking ability. While Noel downplayed the comparison, he made clear his pursuit of breaking Davis single-season school record of 186 blocks set last year. A Kentucky-record 12 blocks during an 87-74 victory at Mississippi on Jan. 29 put him slightly ahead of Davis pace, which was set over 40 games. More importantly, Kentuckys victory over the then-No. 16 Rebels helped re-establish its credentials as an NCAA tournament team. Their first win over a ranked opponent was part of a season-best five-game winning streak that helped put the Wildcats back in the Top 25 on Monday for the first time since falling out Dec. 3 following consecutive losses to Notre Dame and Baylor. Tuesdays game against Florida was supposed to be another big test, but Kentucky trailed by as many as 19 points before Noels injury. The Wildcats seemed even more shaken afterward, and their winning streak vanished. Kentucky visits Tennessee on Saturday before returning home Wednesday against Vanderbilt, providing the Wildcats chances to sweep season series against both schools and stay in the SEC race. Bowie believes Calipari is capable of motivating the Wildcats to overcome Noels absence, band together as a team and return to the post-season -- suggesting that urgency sometimes brings out the best performances. "I still feel like theyll make the tournament," Bowie said, "but whether they have a legitimate chance of making a serious run, that will be determined. With Cal as coach, and I think they have plenty of personnel, they have a chance to be one of the 65 teams invited to the tournament." ' ' '
