Devils Vs. Kings, Stanley Cup Finals 2012 Game 1: Colin Fraser Gives Los Angeles 1-0 Lead After 1st Period

The 2012 Stanley Cup Finals started on Wednesday night in Newark, with the New Jersey Devils hosting the Los Angeles Kings. After the first period, the Devils are down a goal. The Kings lead 1-0 with 40 minutes left to play.

Jordan Nolan fought for the puck along the boards. He finally found the rubber and fed it out to the front of the net. Colin Fraser was there waiting, and hammered the puck past Martin Brodeur for his first goal of the playoffs. Watch the video below:

Both teams took a few minutes to feel each other out, giving the game a slow start. Each team had five shots on goal. The Devils failed to convert a power play resulting from Dustin Brown's rather obvious goaltender interference penalty.
