Kings Vs. Devils, Stanley Cup Finals 2012 Game 4: Still Scoreless After Two

Game 4 of the 2012 Stanley Cup Finals between the New Jersey Devils and the Los Angeles Kings has been mostly uneventful. After two periods of play the teams are still scoreless.

A power play, the only one in the second period, gave Los Angeles an advantage in the shots department. The Kings fired off seven shots on goal to just three for the Devils. Martin Brodeur stood tall in net, hearkening back to his earlier Stanley Cup performances.

Brodeur's best save came when he robbed Simon Gagne on a breakaway. Gagne speed in from the left side of the ice, but Brodeur stopped his shot on the stick side. Other than that play, the Kings have yet to really challenge Brodeur with a sustained attack.

New Jersey is not making much of its few scoring chances. A slowed game could benefit the Devils, cooling the aggressive Kings that have them on the ropes with a 3-0 series lead.
