2012 NHL Stanley Cup Finals, Game 4: Martin Brodeur Reacts To Devils' Victory

New Jersey Devils goaltender Martin Brodeur was seemingly in a jovial mood during his press conference following New Jersey’s season-extending 3-1 victory over the Los Angeles Kings in Game 4 on Wednesday night.

“We’re pretty happy to live another day. There’s no doubt about that,” Brodeur said. " I think we wanted to make them jump on a plane and come to New Jersey. We had to go anyway. Might as well get a game over there.

“But I think it’s a tough situation, you know, for us to be in. We pulled it off, one game. We’ll take it one game at a time. But I’m sure they’re not happy to make that trip. We’ll try to make it miserable for them again.”

Brodeur echoed the sentiments of coach Peter DeBoer, saying the Devils finally got rewarded for the effort on Wednesday night.

“We feel that we’ve been playing really well this series, but with zero result,” Brodeur said. “We just wanted to do more of the same.”

The Devils also finally got a couple of breaks, with two Los Angeles shots clanging off the crossbar in the first period.

“We haven’t got these breaks much this series,” Brodeur said. “It’s nice to have them on our side, especially early.”

Game 5 is Saturday night at the Prudential Center in New Jersey.
