The teams traded goals 24 seconds apart in the middle of the second period.
New Jersey got on the board with 9:22 remaining in the period, when a slap shot by Matt Taormina from just inside the blue line found its way through traffic and beat Quick.
The Kings’ two-goal lead returned with 8:58 remaining. Rob Scuderi’s point shot went wide, and deflected hard off the end boards. Jarret Stoll was there to knock in the puck with a backhand shot before Brodeur could get back in position. Williams also picked up an assist.
