Kings Vs. Devils, Stanley Cup Finals 2012 Game 4: Teams Skate To Scoreless Tie After 1st Period

The New Jersey Devils are up against the wall, backed into a corner. Whichever cliche you prefer to describe their predicament of being down 3-0 in their series against the Los Angeles Kings, you would be hard pressed to overstate the level of desperation. After one period of play, the Devils and Kings are tied 0-0.

Los Angeles finished the period with a flurry, missing on two scoring chances on a power play at the end of the first. The Kings had a 5-3 advantage in scoring chances, but the Devils managed to out-shoot the Kings 8-7. Both teams went 0-2 on the power play.

Ilya Kovalchuk and Zach Parise had a pair of shots to led the Devils.
