Kings Vs. Devils, Stanley Cup Finals 2012 Game 3: Los Angeles, New Jersey Tied, 0-0, After 1st Period

The New Jersey Devils and the Los Angeles Kings are tied, 0-0, after the first period in Game 3 of the 2012 NHL Stanley Cup Finals at the Staples Center on Monday night. Both Martin Brodeur and Jonathan Quick were solid in net, turning back six and seven shots on goal, respectively.

The Kings held off a 5-3 advantage for the Devils for nearly a minute after Jeff Carter was called for a four-minute double minor high-sticking penalty on Adam Henrique with Mike Richards already in the penalty box.


The Devils could only put one shot on goal during that span, however. Zach Parise had a good look on a wristshot from 15 feet out, but Quick made a nice kick save to turn the puck back.
