Kings Vs. Devils, Stanley Cup Finals 2012 Game 6: Los Angeles Leads 3-0 After 1st, Steve Bernier Ejected

Game 6 of the 2012 Stanley Cup Finals is off to an awful start for the New Jersey Devils on Monday night. Forward Steve Bernier was ejected after a nasty hit on the Rob Scuderi of the Los Angeles Kings along the board behind the Kings' net. He was given a 10-minute misconduct and a five-minute major penalty for boarding. The Kings reeled off three goals on the subsequent powerplay, and now lead 3-0 after the first period.

Los Angeles held a man advantage for the full five minutes because it was a major penalty. Dustin Brown scored twice in less than two minutes [ed-Jeff Carter credited with second goal during first intermission], and Trevor Lewis added another tally. The Devils were out shot 13-4 in the first period. Martin Brodeur has 10 saves to four for Jonathan Quick.

The Devils will have to play extremely well if they hope to make a comeback and stave off elimination.
