LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Drew Doughty had a goal and two assists, Jonathan Quick made 18 saves and the Los Angeles Kings moved to the brink of an unlikely second-round sweep with a 4-2 victory over the St. Louis Blues in Game 3 on Thursday night. Mike Richards scored the Kings' first power play goal in six games before setting up Doughty's clinching goal with 11:48 to play for the eighth-seeded Kings, who improved to 7-1 in the postseason with their third straight dominant win over second-seeded St. Louis. Los Angeles could clinch its first trip to the conference finals since 1993 in Game 4 on Sunday. Chris Stewart scored two goals and Brian Elliott stopped 18 shots in a shaky performance for the Blues, who must accomplish just the fourth comeback from an 0-3 deficit in NHL playoff history to advance.
