The Devils Have Their Day by Momma Gouche

There wasn’t much to choose from the play of the Los Angeles Kings and the new Jersey Devils in the first two periods Wednesday night. The Kings had a slight edge late in the second period, but the score was 0-0 at the end of the period. Both Jonathon Quick and Martin Brodeur were stalwart in goal. In my opinion the best goaltending of the series. It looked like perhaps  … overtime … or a “chink in the armor”. It proved to be the latter, as a long pass from Bryce Salvador to Patrick Elias caught Quick off guard, … and Elias put a backhand into the net. Drew Doughty retaliated one minute later, but the tone of the game changed at this point. The Devils got hungry and were fighting for their life. Adam Henrique put a wrist shot past Quick at 15:29 and the Devils, a least, survive for another day at home. Most of the Kings are confident they will bring The Cup home. Only three times has a team come back from 3-0 in a series and only once in a final series; when the Toronto Maple Leafs accomplished this in 1942.

  1. This is a great story. Can the Devils come back? Can Brodeur make history?
