Kings counter: Voynov, Quick lead LA Kings past Chicago 3-1 in Game 3 of conference finals

Slava Voynov had a goal and an assist, Jonathan Quick made 19 saves, and the Los Angeles Kings beat Chicago 3-1 in Game 3 of the Western Conference finals on Tuesday night, trimming the Blackhawks' series lead to 2-1.

Justin Williams also scored and Dwight King added an empty-net goal in the defending Stanley Cup champions' 15th consecutive home victory since March. The Kings have won eight straight home playoff games, dating to last season's title clincher, and they never trailed while ending the top-seeded Blackhawks' five-game postseason winning streak.

Game 4 is Thursday night.

Bryan Bickell scored and Corey Crawford stopped 25 shots for the Blackhawks, who chased Quick from Game 2 and earned back-to-back home victories to open the series last weekend.
