Morning jam: Coyotes-Kings Game 3 facts

5/18/2012

* Kings: 4th team in the last 30 years to win 11 of 1st 12 playoff games (Penguins in 2008, Red Wings in 1995, Oilers in 1983)

* Kings: have won the 1st 3 games in all 3 playoff series this year; had never won 1st 3 games of playoff series before this year

* Dwight King: game-winning 3rd-period goal is 5th in playoffs after scoring 5 in regular season

* Kings: trailed for 2:07 in 2nd period, 1st time trailing since Game 1 in Western Conference Semifinals; in last 7 games, have trailed for only 9:49 of 420 minutes

FROM THE ELIAS SPORTS BUREAU: Jonathan Quick has won his last eight playoff starts and has not allowed more than two goals in any of them (he owns a 1.24 goals-against average and a .950 saves percentage). That matches the longest such streak within one season in NHL playoff history. Detroit's Terry Sawchuk won all eight of his playoff starts and did not allow more than two goals in any of them back in 1952.
