2012 NHL Stanley Cup Finals: Down 1-0, New Jersey In Familiar Territory

In their journey to the 2012 NHL Stanley Cup Finals, the New Jersey Devils have trailed in all three series they have played up to this point. So being down 1-0 to the Los Angeles Kings entering Saturday’s Game 2 (8 p.m. ET at the Prudential Center) is familiar territory.

“We know we’ve been here before,” said Devils coach Peter DeBoer. “I think also after looking at the tape, we think we know what we have to fix. I think there’s a comfort level there that we can get that done.”

The Devils generated only 14 shots on goal in Game 1. with Los Angeles goaltender Jonathan Quick making 13 saves.

“We’ve got to do more. I think we made it too easy on him,” DeBoer said. “We had some opportunities. But we didn’t do enough to make it tough on him.”
