Devils Vs. Kings Score Update: New Jersey Leads 1-0 After First Period

After falling behind early in Games One and Two of the Stanley Cup Finals, the Devils finally did something they hadn't achieved thus far in their series against the Los Angeles Kings--score a goal in the first period.

Left wing Zach Parise scored his eighth goal of the postseason for New Jersey, knocking in a shot over Kings goaltender Jonathan Quick with 7:15 remaining in the period (GIF is below). The goal came off a powerplay opportunity courtesy of Kings defender Willie Mitchell, who was assessed a two minute interference penalty a little over halfway through the opening period of play.

The Devils trail the Kings in the Stanley Cup series 3-1.
