After Monday nights 4-0 loss to the Los Angeles Kings in Game 3 of the 2012 NHL Stanley Cup finals, which put his team in a 3-0 hole, New Jersey Devils coach Peter DeBoer simply gave credit to the Kings.
“You have to give their goalie [Jonathan Quick] and their team some credit. You know, he’s made some saves. We put up the same number of chances against Philly, the Rangers, we’re getting some goals,” DeBoer said. "We’re not this series. That’s a credit to them. It’s not that our guys aren’t trying or not doing enough. They’re shutting the door.
“The frustrating part is you’re creating some quality chances, you’re getting some quality shots, and they’re not going in.”
The Kings can put the Devils out of their misery in Game 4 on Wednesday night at the Staples Center. A win by Los Angeles would clinch the Stanley Cup for the Kings.
