NEW YORK (AP) — The Rangers are one loss away from being swept out of the Stanley Cup finals by the Los Angeles Kings.

Jonathan Quick made 17 of his 32 saves while the Kings scored twice in the second period of a 3-0 shutout of the Rangers Monday night in New York.

The Kings went ahead on Jeff Carter’s goal with 0.7 seconds left in the opening period, one of LA’s five shots in the period.

The Rangers outshot L.A. 17-8 in the second period but couldn’t beat Quick while Jake Muzzin and Mike Richards tallied against Henrik Lundqvist.

The Kings were 1-for-4 on the power play while killing off the Rangers’ six extra-man chances.

Lundqvist finished with just 12 saves.

If the Kings sweep the series, it’ll be the team’s second Stanley Cup in three years.
