2012 Stanley Cup Finals, Devils Vs. Kings Game 5: Game Time, TV Coverage And More

The New Jersey Devils successfully fought off elimination from the 2012 NHL Stanley Cup Finals, beating the Los Angeles Kings 3-1 Wednesday night. They are still down 3-1 in the series, and will have to keep winning at home if they want to stay alive. The home ice advantage might not mean much; the Kings are 10-0 on the road in the 2012 playoffs, including two overtime wins in New Jersey in the first two games of the series.

Coming back from a 3-0 deficit has only happened once, with the 1942 Toronto Maple Leafs beating the Detroit Red Wings. New Jersey coach Peter DeBoer has taken a positive attitude towards this, asking "Why not us?" If they want it to be them they'll need another strong performance out of Martin Brodeur, and more of the offense Patrik Elias, Adam Henrique, and Ilya Kovalchuk provided in Game 4.
