NEW YORK -- Benoit Pouliot scored 7:25 into the first period to give the New York Rangers an early 1-0 lead as they tried to stave off a sweep by the Los Angeles Kings in Game 4 of the Stanley Cup finals.

Two nights after Jonathan Quick made 32 saves in a 3-0 victory that put the Kings on the brink of their second title in three years, Pouliot got a puck past him.

The Kings won the first two games at home in overtime in building their 3-0 series lead and are trying to become the first team to complete a sweep in the finals since Detroit did it to Washington in 1998.
