2012 Stanley Cup Finals, Game 1: Peter DeBoer Press Conference

After watching his team lose to the Los Angeles Kings, 2-1, in overtime of Game 1 of the 2012 NHL Stanley Cup Finals, New Jersey Devils coach Peter DeBoer said “I don’t believe we deserved to win tonight.”

The Devils will get a chance to even the best-of-seven series when they host Game 2 Saturday at 8 p.m. ET.

“I think we’re going to have to find another level. I feel we have another level. I thought we came out a little tentative, as was expected for a Stanley Cup Final game. I thought we got better as the game went on. That’s a team you’ve got to play 60 minutes against,” DeBoer said. “The good news is we started in the same hole against Philly, we started in the same hole against the Rangers. We responded to the situation in the right way the last two rounds, and I expect the same.”
