It was an all too familiar tale for the New Jersey Devils in Game Two of the Stanley Cup Finals. Fall behind 1-0 in the first period, even things up at 1-1 before the end of regulation, and suffer a crushing defeat at the hands of the Los Angeles Kings in overtime.
After an early third period goal by New Jersey center Ryan Carter, the Devils entered overtime with momentum on their side and a chance to even the series at 1-1. But Los Angeles center Jeff Carter quickly quelled that possibility, scoring the game winning goal with 6:18 remaining in the extra period.
The Devils now trail the Kings in the Stanley Cup Finals 2-0 as they head back to Los Angeles for Game Three, which is set for Monday at 8 p.m. Eastern Time.
