Game 3 recap

Star Tribune’s three stars

1. Jonathan Quick, Kings: The goalie hadn’t been as dominant as he was during L.A.’s 2012 Cup run — until Monday. He stopped all 32 shots he faced.

2. Jeff Carter, Kings: Did his best Justin Holl impersonation by scoring with 0.7 seconds left in the first period.

3. Justin Williams, Kings: Posted his 16th assist of the playoffs by setting up Carter’s buzzer-beater.’
