The Kings and New Jersey Devils went through a scoreless first period that was anything but a snoozer at Staples Center on Monday.
The Devils had the better of the play, but once again were thwarted by Kings goaltender Jonathan Quick.
The Devils had a two-man advantage on the power play for one minute and generated chances, but could not beat Quick. New Jersey got off three shots, two at the crease. But Quick stopped a rebound try by Andy Greene and a tip by Zach Parise.
