After missing the playoffs completely last year, the New Jersey Devils are playing for the Cup. The first game of the Stanley Cup Finals, Devils vs. the Los Angeles Kings was played last night. The Kings dominated the first period, but it ended tied 1-1. Second period was pretty even, third period was all Devils, but they couldn’t get another one past Quick.
Now, I’m a Devils fan because of Martin Brodeur, and while I would have loved to see Brodeur stop Kopitar’s shot, I have to admit that Kopitar deserved that goal. It was a lovely breakaway and shot.
