Found June 07, 2012 on Kukla's Korner:
from Steve Simmons of the Toronto Sun, The Old Man and The Kid are connected by time, jersey colour and once again by circumstance. The Kid was born in the same year The Old Man was drafted. The Kid who scores goals, mostly important ones, was all of four months old when the New Jersey Devils traded up to select Martin Brodeur in 1990. The Old Man, Brodeur, defied age and credulity Wednesday night at the Staples Center, putting on a clinic of inspired and occasionally spectacular play in goal. The Kid, the rookie, Adam Henrique, made a skill play in a tense third period to score the winning goal, keeping the Stanley Cup final very much alive. For Brodeur, these moments have been happening his entire hockey life, just not as often in recent years. But in this up-and-down Stanley Cup run by the Devils, they’re happening more and more. continued

L.A. news anchor flubs Kings goalie's name

It hasn’t been a good week for the local news people. Earlier this week, some poor lady thought game four in the Heat-Celtics series ended in a tie. Another Los Angeles news woman had an issue reporting on the Los Angeles Kings 4-0 win against the New Jersey Devils in game three of the Stanley Cup Finals. A Los Angeles news anchor, let me repeat…a Los Angeles news anchor called...

After Game 4 win, Devils like their chances

LOS ANGELES -- The pass was a little behind Adam Henrique, nothing that a slight kick of the New Jersey Devils rookie forward's skate couldn't fix. He got the puck to his stick and then put it past Kings goalie Jonathan Quick, a third-period tally that put the Devils in front for good in a 3-1 victory in Game 4 of the Stanley Cup Final on Wednesday. On a team with big-name...

Devils confident despite long odds

The Devils wore wide smiles and laughed easily. They had a collective swagger and espoused their belief in themselves. If you didn't know better, you'd swear it was the Devils who have a three games to one lead in the Stanley Cup Final. Instead, they enter Saturday night's Game 5 of the Stanley Cup Final at the Prudential Center trailing the Los Angeles Kings three...

Why Zach Parise isn’t coming to New York

The Eastern Conference Finals only provided further evidence that Zach Parise is a terrific player and would be an ideal fit for the New York Rangers. There’s little doubt that GM Glen Sather is going to make Parise a massive multi-year offer when he becomes an unrestricted free agent on July 1st, but despite New York’s desire to convert the Devils’ captain into a true blue...

Report: Devils bringing new minority investors

The New Jersey Devils, who are in the Stanley Cup Finals, reportedly have gained a minor investor. The identity of the investor has yet to be announced, according to the Sports Business Daily, but majority owner Jeff Vanderbeek will remain in charge of the team.

We’ve Got a Situation (and a Snooki & J-Woww) at the Stanley Cup Finals

New Jersey Devils – Jersey Shore. You get it right? Totally awesome right? Well, perhaps not, but still. I’m going to plead stupidity on this one… Do arenas let you carry in Big Heads like that? So technically, you can just carry a Big Head into an arena if it’s PG-13 or better? That’s weird. Someone hit me up on this one.

GARTH: Parise's Swan Song?

One wonders if Zach Parise will be playing his last game as a Devil in Hockeywood tonight. Parise has been a no-show for in the Cup Finals. He's scored 7 goals and added 7 assists in the 2012 playoffs, however, he's been held scoreless by the Kings in the Finals. He's -3 and has only been able to muster 11 shots on Jonaton Quick. With Kovalchuk's back in obvious...

Porn Star puts it on the glass and Charlie Sheen has a meltdown Kings vs. Devils Stanley Cup finals

I have to be honest, I have NO INTEREST in hockey. But, I put on for my City and the LA Kings are just one win away from taking the Stanley cup. At Wednesday night’s game – oh did I mention their playing the New Jersey Devils?- Not only did Charlie Sheen have a meltdown, [...]

L.A. Kings Are Dominating Every Aspect of New Jersey Devils

Can you think of one aspect in which the Los Angeles Kings are not completely dominating the New Jersey Devils? You already know that the Kings are up 3-0 and will most likely capture the Stanley Cup tonight for the first time in their franchise history. The Kings have the best twitter account in sports (its shockingly hilarious for a team-owned account), they have the hottest...

Stanley Cup Final Game 4: New Jersey 3, Los Angeles 1

Devils Still Breathing

from Eric Duhatschek of the Globe and Mail, Put the coronation on hold - for three nights anyway. One win away from their first Stanley Cup championship in 45 years, the Los Angeles Kings couldn’t close the deal Wednesday night, falling 3-1 to a New Jersey Devils team that had nothing to lose and were finally rewarded for some hard luck and bad bounces endured earlier in the series...
