2012 Stanley Cup Finals, Devils Vs. Kings, Pete DeBoer Press Conference: New Jersey Coach Praises Kings, Considers Devils Ready

New Jersey Devils coach Pete DeBoer held a press conference Tuesday afternoon as part of the 2012 Stanley Cup media day, praising the Los Angeles Kings but saying he feels the Devils will be prepared despite a five-day layoff after ousting the New York Rangers.

"It's always a danger when you've been off for awhile. But we've been here before. I think we know how to map it out, and we'll be ready," DeBoer said.

The Devils coach said the Kings are a lot like the Rangers -- they are well-coached and possess top-notch goaltending -- but added that Los Angeles has a deeper, more talented stable of forwards than New York.

"They're impressive on tape, and I'm looking forward to seeing them live and seeing what we can do," DeBoer said.
