THE STORY: The Los Angeles Kings are a win away from their first Stanley Cup title – and they’ll have the Staples Center crowd on their side as they look to complete the sweep Wednesday against the New Jersey Devils. The Kings are coming off what may have been their best game of the postseason, a 4-0 victory highlighted by Jonathan Quick’s third shutout of the playoffs. The young netminder is considered the odds-on favorite to take home the Conn Smythe Trophy if the Kings finish off the Devils in Game 4.

TV: 8 p.m. ET, NBCS, CBC, RDS

ABOUT THE DEVILS: Nothing is going right for New Jersey, which now needs to post four consecutive victories against one of the most dominant teams in playoff history. Even veteran netminder Martin Brodeur, who appeared to have turned back the clock in the first three series but stopped just 17 of 21 shots in Game 3. The Devils had their chances to generate offense in Monday’s defeat, but finished 0-for-6 on the power play. That included a stretch of 5-on-3 hockey that lasted more than a minute. “We’ve got to win four straight,” said Devils forward Zach Parise. “That’s our approach. Win the next one. That’s all we can do.”

ABOUT THE KINGS: Los Angeles has taken a level-headed approach to the postseason, and being a game away from the most coveted award in pro hockey hasn’t changed anything. “We can’t take anything for granted,” said Kings defenseman Drew Doughty. “It could have been two-nothing for them before (Game 3).” Special teams was the difference Monday night, as the Kings killed off all six New Jersey man advantage opportunities while going 2-for-2 on the power play. The second statistic is more notable, given that Los Angeles had gone five games without scoring a man-advantage goal.

OVERTIME:

1. The Kings are the first team to take a 3-0 lead in each series since the playoffs expanded to four best-of-seven rounds.

2. The 1942 Toronto Maple Leafs are the only team in NHL history to rally from a 3-0 deficit to win the Stanley Cup.

3. A win in any of the next four games would make Los Angeles the first No. 8 seed to capture a Stanley Cup title.

PREDICTION: Kings 3, Devils 1.

Los Angeles Kings One Win Away From Winning The Stanley Cup

Kings Vs Devils Stanley Cup

Kings Vs Devils Stanley Cup

With their victory in game 3 of the Stanley Cup Finals over the New Jersey Devils the Los Angeles Kings are now only 1 win away from bringing the Stanley Cup home to Los Angeles.

With a 4-0 victory that saw the Kings dominating in nearly every facet of the game, the Kings clearly look like they are going to end this magical playoff run on a very high note.

Anze Kopitar currently leads all playoff participants with 18 points in 17 games (8 goals and 10 assists) and an astounding +15 rating. Dustin Brown is just behind him with 7 goals and 10 assists and a +15 rating.

Defenseman Drew Doughty has shown signs of the player he was 2 years ago when he was a Norris trophy finalist as he has 3 goals, 10 assists, and a +13 rating while averaging 26:11 minutes per game.

If the Kings do win the Cup, goaltender Jonathan Quick is the most likely member of the team to earn the Conn Smythe trophy as the most valuable player during the playoffs as he has posted a ridiculously low 1.36 goals against average and .950 save percentage. Quick has yet to allow more than 3 goals in ANY game this entire playoff run.

With game 4 of the series to be played Wednesday night on home ice in front of what is expected to be the largest crowd in Kings history you can bet that the Kings will be doing everything in their power to close out the series and hoist the Stanley Cup in front of their home crowd.

Kings faceoff against Devils tonight at Staples Center

Preview: New Jersey at Los Angeles
When: 8:00 PM ET, Monday, June 4, 2012
Where: Staples Center, Los Angeles, California

With another bout of road dominance behind them, the Los Angeles Kings find themselves halfway to their first Stanley Cup championship as they host the New Jersey Devils in Monday’s Game 3. The Kings gained the upper hand in the best-of-seven series with identical 2-1 overtime victories in Games 1 and 2. Jeff Carter was the hero Saturday night as his turnaround wrist shot beat Martin Brodeur and improved the Kings to 10-0 on the road in the playoffs.

Kings Vs Devils Tickets for tonight are still available.

ABOUT THE DEVILS: New Jersey players were saying all the right things after dropping a second straight heartbreaker, but history is clearly against the club as the series shifts to Los Angeles. Only the 1942 Toronto Maple Leafs and the 1959 Montreal Canadiens have come back to win the Stanley Cup after dropping the first two games at home. Forward Ryan Carter, who scored in Game 2, says his team may not be as dominant away from home as the Kings have been – but it hasn’t been a slouch, either. “We’ve been a strong road team all year,” he said. “If we play our game we feel we can win on any sheet of ice, home or away.”

Outside of the early-season trip to Los Angeles, the Devils only ventured as far west as Edmonton, Calgary and Phoenix, all of which fall in the Mountain Time zone. They played the two other California clubs – Anaheim and San Jose – at home and also hosted the Vancouver Canucks in their only meeting this year.

ABOUT THE KINGS: Prior history benefits Los Angeles in at least one other way. Saturday’s win made the Kings just the fourth team ever to take a 2-0 lead in all four of their post-season series (1981 New York Islanders, 1988 Edmonton Oilers, 2008 Detroit Red Wings). All three of those teams went on to prevail in the Stanley Cup. Yet, despite having a sizable lead, Kings forward Justin Williams says he and his teammates aren’t settling in. “We’re not satisfied as of yet,” he said. “We came here and we accomplished what we wanted to do here. We won two games. Now we’re going to try to win in front of the hometown fans.”

OVERTIME:

1. New Jersey is just 1-5 in postseason series in which it has dropped the first two games, prevailing only against the Boston Bruins in 1994.

2. Eight different Kings have scored game winners so far in the postseason, led by captain Dustin Brown with three.

3. The Devils’ top three scorers – Zach Parise, Ilya Kovalchuk and Travis Zajac – are a combined minus-12 in the playoffs.

KINGS 2, DEVILS 1 (OT): Jeff Carter’s goal 13:42 into overtime lifted visiting Los Angeles to a 2-0 lead in the Stanley Cup finals.

Following extended pressure in the New Jersey zone, Carter gathered the puck at the side of the New Jersey net, skated out to the top of the circles and wristed a shot that beat Devils netminder Martin Brodeur on the short side.

The win improves Los Angeles to 10-0 on the road in the postseason – and more importantly, sends the Kings back to California with a two-game lead in the best-of-seven as they seek their first Stanley Cup title.

Trailing 1-0 after 40 minutes, the Devils finally drew even 2:59 into the third period. Ryan Carter situated himself in the high slot and redirected a Marek Zidlicky point shot past Kings netminder Jonathan Quick for his fifth goal of the postseason.

The teams exchanged chances until late in regulation, when the Devils missed a golden chance to even the series as Ilya Kovalchuk rang a shot off the crossbar with 19 seconds remaining.

Quick stopped 32 shots to preserve the win. Brodeur made 30 saves in defeat.

Moments after killing off a New Jersey power play, the Kings jumped in front on a great individual effort by Drew Doughty. The superstar defenseman stickhandled from his own zone to the top of the left circle before unleashing a wrist shot that beat Martin Brodeur inside his right arm.

The Devils looked to draw even but couldn’t beat Quick, who stood his ground during two separate flurries in front of the Los Angeles net.

Los Angeles and New Jersey traded quality scoring chances early in the second, with Quick stopping Anton Volchenkov on a tricky shot from the top of the circles and Justin Williams wiring a wrist shot at the other end that Brodeur snagged with his glove.

Dainius Zubrus nearly broke the New Jersey deadlock later in the frame, but his redirection from point-blank range sailed just wide of the net. The Devils enjoyed a shorthanded break moments after that, but Quick tipped a Zach Parise pass intended for Travis Zajac just out of reach.

Quick made the save of the game with just over five minutes remaining in the period, stretching out his right leg to redirect a strange deflection on a Kings clearing attempt with the edge of his skate.

GAME NOTEBOOK: This is the first time the first two games of the Stanley Cup finals have gone to overtime since 1951, when the Montreal Canadiens opposed the Toronto Maple Leafs. The teams split the games. … The Kings went just 29-66 on the road in the playoffs from 1967-2011. … Carter scored just four times in 72 regular-season games between the Devils and Florida Panthers. … The Kings improved to 4-0 in overtime in the playoffs. The Devils dropped to 4-3.

Stanley Cup Preview Kings Vs Devils

Kings Vs Devils Stanley Cup

Kings Vs Devils Stanley Cup

It’s been a long season but finally the NHL is at its final home stretch, the Stanley Cup Finals.

The two teams that will be facing off in the finals are the Los Angeles Kings and the New Jersey Devils. Each team has defied the odds this post season as neither team had home ice advantage for any of its playoff series and neither was really given a legitimate chance at winning it all. Several weeks later and here both teams are, 4 wins away from the greatness they’ve been trying to achieve all season. Which team will win it all though?

During the regular season these 2 teams faced off twice back in October, once in New Jersey and once in Los Angeles. Unfortunately for the Kings, both of these games resulted in losses, however each team was completely different back then as the Kings had yet to acquire Jeff Carter and were still operating under former coach Terry Murray. The Devils on the other hand were still discovering who they were after an awful 10-11 season.

For the first time since 1999, the Stanley Cup will be won by a team whose captain is American as both the Kings (Dustin Brown, NY) and Devils (Zach Parise, MN) were born in the U.S.

The winner of this series will be the lowest seeded team since the NHL adopted the 16 team playoff format back in 1994 to win the Stanley Cup. Currently the lowest seeded team to ever win it all was the New Jersey Devils as a #5 seed.

If the Kings win it all they will be the 4th consecutive team to start the season in Europe and win it all.

The Kings have won an NHL record 10 consecutive playoff games on the road (dating back to last season) and will look to extend that streak as they will start the series off on the road in New Jersey.

The puck will drop at the Prudential Center in New Jersey on Wednesday May 30th at 8:00 pm Eastern as the series will get underway.

Kings ready to face off against the Devils for the Stanley Cup

Kings Vs Devils Stanley Cup

Kings Vs Devils Stanley Cup

The Stanley Cup Final matches two teams that haven’t met for 7 months. This will be the first-ever playoff series between The Los Angeles Kings and the New Jersey Devils. In the regular season, the New Jersey Devils defeated the Kings once in regulation and once in a shootout.

The Los Angeles Kings have geared up for a lengthy playoff series in every single round of the postseason, but they haven’t even had to play a Game 6.

New Jersey and Los Angeles met twice in the regular season, both games coming in October (13th and 25th). The Kings lost to the Devils, 2-1, in a shootout October 13 in Newark, having just returned to the United States after starting the regular season with two games in Europe. The Devils won, 3-0 at Staples Center, October 25.

One of many similarities between the Kings and the Devils is that their leading players have earned every last bit of their exorbitant paychecks. It is a challenging task with either club to point directly at a best player. Any which way your finger waggles, at minimum, 3 faces appear.
Leading the way on the ice and off it for both teams are American born Captains who, though they play very various styles, both lead by example and put work ethic at the forefront of every shift. Neither Dustin Brown nor Zach Parise will be caught coasting for a second of precious ice time. Hockey fans around the world will be mesmerized by two skaters who have never played for the sport’s greatest prize, but have played every game these playoffs as if the Cup awaits them at the final buzzer.

There is nobody hotter in the NHL than Jonathan Quick is in net for the Kings. Quick was a great goaltender during the regular season, but he’s taken his game to an additional level throughout the playoffs. During the 2011-12 season, Quick had a goals against average of 1,95, which has shrunk even smaller, to 1,54, during these playoffs. Both teams have elite goaltenders playing at elite levels right now.

Whoever won the 2012 Stanley Cup, the Devils or Kings, will be the lowest seed in the history of the NHL to do so. There’s no doubt that this matchup is between the two most popular teams in the sport. Kings have gone on a 12-2 rampage through the playoffs and earned a date with the Devils in the Stanley Cup finals, which begin Wednesday.

Tickets for the Devils Vs Kings are still available for the Staples Center as well as the Prudential Center.
