Devils Force Game Seven
Posted by Eric Lemus on Jun 9, 2012 - 8:10:50 PM

NEWARK, NJ—June 9, 2012 would mark a first for the Los Angeles Kings one way or another. At the end of the night Los Angeles would either have lost their first road game of the 2012 Stanley Cup Playoffs or they would hoist the first Stanley Cup in franchise history.

Both the Kings and the New Jersey Devils had depended on their goaltending to this point, and game five would be no different. The legendary Devils’ goalie Martin Brodeur and the Kings’ Jonathan Quick made spectacular save after spectacular save and each man gave his team a great chance to win the match.

The pace was high from the moment the puck dropped as both teams charged the net within the first minute of the match. That pace continued throughout.

The New Jersey Devils drew first blood as Zach Parise scored on a first period power play after a turnover from Jonathan Quick left the puck in front of an empty net. It was the first power play goal for the Devils in the Finals after failing on fifteen power play opportunities in the first four games.

Los Angeles’ Justin Williams netted the tie early in the second period, but Bryce Salvador gave the Devils the lead once more after his shot deflected off the body of Kings defender Slava Voynov minutes later.

The final period saw the Kings put forth an enormous effort to even the score and the Devils an equally strong effort to extend the lead. But the two all-world goaltenders stopped every attempt thrown at them.

The future Hall of Famer, Brodeur put on a show in the last ninety seconds of the game as the Kings threw an offensive flurry at him looking for the tie.

In the end, it was Brodeur and the Devils holding off elimination for at least one more game and the Kings went down on the road for the first time this postseason.

Game six is scheduled for Monday at 5PM in Los Angeles.
