But the Knights kept pressing and tied it after a prolonged sequence of dominance in which Colin Miller's shot hit the post before Eakin buried Ryan Carpenter's cross-ice pass.

Los Angeles Kings goaltender Jonathan Quick can't stop a goal by Vegas Golden Knights center Cody Eakin during the third period of Game 3 of an NHL hockey first-round playoff series in Los Angeles, Sunday, April 15, 2018. Game 4 is Tuesday at 7:30 p.m.at Staples Center. So do the Knights.

The Kings now trail 3-0 in the series.

Less than a minute later, Karlsson made it 3-1 on a goal off the faceoff with assists credited to Reilly Smith and Marchessault.

Supreme Court denies Blagojevich appeal
The justices didn't comment Monday in letting stand the convictions and 14-year prison term the 61-year-old is serving. Blagojevich went to prison without hard proof that he took campaign cash in exchange for official actions.

The high-scoring Boston Bruins, who pounded the Toronto Maple Leafs with 12 goals (including four goals and five assists from first-line winger David Pastrnak) to take a 2-0 lead in their first-round series, are No. 2 this week. "So there's at least one game left to be played".

"We finally pushed them back far enough to where our guys could make plays", Schmidt said. "I think they built a team, you know, which is hard to say before it's built".

"Our resiliency and, I think, character", he said. Doughty also had partner Jake Muzzin back by his side after he missed the previous seven games with an upper-body injury.

LOS ANGELES - Taking a one-goal lead into the third period against a team like the Vegas Golden Knights is probably not very comforting. "I've said it before, I think Drew is the most competitive guy I've ever seen". Alex Iafallo was a healthy scratch in Game 2 and made his presence known quickly in Game 3. Adrian Kempe took down John Merrill and held him down, and Clifford and Brown were doing their usual slamdances.

"I've had quite a few shots on him throughout the series. They were coming and the guys did a great job to get the puck out". Iafallo shot it in, although the officials needed a replay to validate it. They spent much of the period in the L.A. zone, but the Kings had their shot-blocking boots on and spared Quick any undue anxiety. Erik Haula butt-ended Kopitar in the face after a cross-check, but went unpenalized. He went to the bench, but was back out there a short time later.

Golden Knights power play starting to struggle.

Kopitar might have felt like he had been in a boxing match after what happened in the second period. They play a really solid team game.

But Vegas killed off that penalty with no problem and then raised its game the way it has all season. Vegas goalie Marc-Andre Fleury had a fine game, stopping 37 of 39 shots.
