The New Jersey Devils Stay Alive In Stanley Cup Finals, Beat Kings 3-1
Heading into game four of the Stanley Cup finals the New Jersey Devils looked to be dead in the water. Apparently they decided not to roll over, because they stay alive to beat the Kings 3-1.
It’s not over until it’s over. The Los Angeles Kings had a chance to close things out against the New Jersey Devils on Wednesday night, and hoist Lord Stanley’s Cup up in front of the home crowd. The Devils had other plans. They spoiled that chance with a crucial game four win, and keep their playoff hopes alive.
No goals were scored until the third period of the game. New Jersey struck first, and the Kings quickly followed to tie it up. It was Adam Henrique’s goal at the 15:29 mark that was the game winner. Ilya Kovalchuk would score the third goal as insurance. Game five moves back to New Jersey with Los Angeles still leading things, 3-1.
