The New Jersey Devils have forced game six in the Stanley Cup Finals.
Saturday night in New Jersey, the Devils defeated the Los Angeles Kings 2-1, but still trail the Stanley Cup Finals 3-2.
Martin Brodeur made 25 saves, while Bryce Salvador and Zach Parise both scored on Kings’ netminder Jonathan Quick.
Parise opened the scoring for the Devils on the power play after Quick waltzed out of his net inappropriately to play the puck. It was the Devils’ first power play goal of the series.
After Justin Williams tied the game for Los Angeles, the Devils got a game winning goal by Salvador from the point, but the replay still looks like David Clarkson tipped the puck in. Either way, Clarkson did a solid job in getting in the way of Quick’s line of sight.
Either way, the Kings are the team with the pressure right now, even though they are one win away from winning their first Stanley Cup in franchise history. Game six is Monday night back in Los Angeles.
