NEWARK, N.J. -- Bryce Salvador scored a fluke goal midway through the second period, snapping a 1-1 tie and giving the New Jersey Devils a 2-1 victory over the Los Angeles Kings in Game 5 of the Stanley Cup final Saturday night, drawing the Devils to within 3-2 in the best-of-seven series. Game 6 is scheduled for Monday night in Los Angeles. It marked only the third time in the history of the NHL that a team that once trailed in the final by a 3-0 margin pushed the series to a Game 6. Zach Parise scored his first goal of the final in the first period, giving the Devils a 1-0 lead, while Justin Williams scored in the opening stages of the second period, tying the game at 1-1. Salvador, who failed to score a single goal in the regular season, fired a shot at 9:05 of the second period that seemed to deflect off the stick of David Clarkson, but in fact went in off Kings defenseman Slava Voynov instead. It gave Salvador his fourth goal and 14th point in 22 playoff games after play...

Devils Still Have An Uphill Battle

from Larry Brooks of the NY Post, It is a pleasure to spend time around a successful coach such as Pete DeBoer, who doesn’t feel the need to belittle professional journalists covering the Stanley Cup playoffs or strike a pose as the man who wants to win more than anyone else in the world. The Devils reflect the equanimity presented by DeBoer throughout the tournament in good times...
