Running With The Devils:
Los Angeles Kings
New Jersey Devils
On a night where the New Jersey Devils were unable to capitalize on several scoring opportunities, it seemed inevitable that the Los Angeles Kings would come away with a Game One victory. Anze Kopitar's seventh goal of the postseason gave LA an overtime victory and an early series lead. The Devils will need to come out strong in Game Two and even up the series before hitting the road.Both teams came out ready to play and were defensively sound. The Devils and Kings were limited to five SOG a piece in the opening twenty minutes; however, Colin Fraser broke the ice with his first postseason goal to put the Kings up 1-0. Fraser's goal came at 9:56 of the first period. Andy Greene turned the puck over behind the net, Jordan Nolan jumped on the loose puck, and fed it in front to Fraser. This particular goal could be classified as a "softy" and one that I'm sure Brodeur would love to have back. David Clarkson air-mailed two shots that could have easily been in the ne...

Meet Anze Kopitar, one of the best players in the NHL who very few seem to know about.
The basics are simple. The 24-year-old Slovenian center led the Los Angeles Kings in scoring for the fifth straight season, notching at least 25 goals each time. His career-high 51 assists this season were eighth-best in the league.
But when you keep a low profile and play hockey in Southern...

Game 1 of the Stanley Cup final between the New Jersey Devils and Los Angeles Kings was exactly as I expected. These two clubs did not get to this stage by accident. Instead, with the incredible forechecking that was on display Wednesday night. Fans that had yet to see the two squads quickly identified how they were able to get to the finals stage. Sure, the offense was not on...
I was watching the highlights of the Stanley Cup Finals Game 1 last night, and I saw Anze Kopitar’s nasty breakaway goal in overtime to win the game. I was impressed, until I saw the interview with Kopitar.
Can someone, uh, look at this guy and tell me I’m not the crazy one? I mean, what in God’s name has he been abusing? Is he injecting himself with Krokodil or something...
What a freaking hockey game. Game 1 of the 2012 Stanley Cup Finals was a heck of a back-and-forth tussle that could have gone either way. It was a hard-hitting, fast-paced hockey game in which the goaltenders shined. Well, the goaltenders and Anze Kopitar.
The Los Angeles center stepped up in overtime with the game tied at 1-1. The 24-year-old got behind New Jersey’s defense,...

Game 1 went to overtime and the game winner was scored by a center just trying to keep his team in the game.
Anze Kopitar found himself with the puck after a pass from Justin Williams and nothing but clear ice and New Jersey goalie Martin Brodeur.
Kopitar deked Broudeur and put the biscuit in the basket giving his L.A Kings a 2-1 overtime win and a 1-0 lead in the best-of...
It was the lamentation of a man who was forced to admit a hard truth to himself.
"It would have been nice to get a bounce but I don't believe we deserved to win tonight," coach Pete DeBoer said a few minutes after his New Jersey Devils dropped Game 1 of the Stanley Cup Final to the Los Angeles Kings, 2-1, in overtime at The Prudential Center.

Aside from ocean views, Newark, New Jersey and Los Angeles, California have nothing in common. L.A. has smog. Newark has snow. L.A. has seven professional sports teams (including the Anaheim teams and USC football). Newark has one. L.A. has bleach-blonde toeheads. Newark has gorilla juiceheads. There are no commonalities. There is no rivalry. There is no hatred...
from Justin Bourne of The Score, I’m a Canadian guy living in the US, so I’m quite familiar with the work of most national broadcasters. I love Bob Cole and Harry Neal (“Great save by…the goalie!”), and usually I love Jim Hughson. Now that I’m in the US, I get a lot of Doc Emrick, who is a whole bunch of fantastic himself (“Waffleboarded into the corner by Brodeur!”...
