NHL Stanley Cup Finals, Devils Vs. Kings Game 4: Peter DeBoer Reaction

After his team won Game 4 of the 2012 Stanley Cup Finals Wednesday night, staving off elimination, New Jersey coach Peter DeBoer said he did not see much difference between that game and the three losses his team has suffered to the Los Angeles Kings.

Other than the outcome, of course.

“Not a whole lot different. We found a way to get the first goal. We found a way to keep momentum. We didn’t play any harder. I mean, I think the chances were relatively even again tonight, like they have been most of the games,” DeBoer said. “We finally got rewarded. Like I said, I’ve liked our game and our efforts the last three games. We just haven’t found a way to win until tonight.”

The Devils still trail in the series 3-1, with Game 5 Saturday in New Jersey.

“We’ve been in adverse spots before where we’ve played two or three games and haven’t got rewarded because of either hot goaltending or we’ve taken too many penalties. We know we’ve just got to stick with it and it will turn. And it did tonight,” DeBoer said. “We’ve got to take it home and take care of business now and win another one.”
