By the end of Wednesday night, the Stanley Cup might be presented to the Los Angeles Kings for the first time. The New Jersey Devils are just trying to avoid being swept for the first time in their illustrious franchise history in Game 4 of the Stanley Cup Finals.
The Devils will need to find a way to solve Jonathan Quick if they want to save any face at all. Quick has only allowed two goals in the series, and not one with the aid of a deflection.
New Jersey has looked absolutely lost for most of the time, with their big stars (Zach Parise, Ilya Kovalchuk, Patrik Elias, and David Clarkson) combining for exactly zero points in the round.
The Kings on the other hand have been world-beaters all playoffs. With a victory, Los Angeles will have gone an incredible 16-2 in the postseason. As frustrating as it is for New Jersey fans, the Kings are just on an unstoppable roll right now.
The Devils just need to take it one game at a time in hopes of finding a miracle. It starts on Wednesday evening at the Staples Center.
