EL SEGUNDO, Calif. -- New Jersey Devils forward Patrik Elias wasn't up for a history lesson when it came to that one team that battled back from a 3-0 deficit to win the Stanley Cup Final. "No and I don't care," the veteran said after practice on Sunday. The Devils are one of 25 squads to lose three games in a row to start off the finals. But by beating the Los Angeles Kings each of the last two games, the Devils are now the third team overall and first since 1945 to extend a 3-0 series to six games. A victory over the Los Angeles Kings in Game 6 of the finals at Staples Center on Monday and the Devils put themselves in the position to become the only team outside of the 1942 Maple Leafs to overcome a 3-0 debt and win the Cup. "I don't look at it as what a great accomplishment to be in a 3-0 hole and to claw your way back out," Devils coach Peter DeBoer said. "We're trying to win a Stanley Cup.

Devils Win, Back To LA For Game 6

The New Jersey Devils defeated the Los Angeles Kings 2-1 tonight to force a Game 6 in LA Monday night.

Watch the game-winning goal from Bryce Salvador midway through the 2nd period. Below, watch...

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...

NEWARK, N.J. -- Bryce Salvador claims he's not doing anything differently in the playoffs, but after going without a single goal during the regular season, he's turned into a legitimate offensive force for the New Jersey Devils in the Stanley Cup playoffs.

Via Greg “Puck Daddy” Wyshynski, the Los Angeles’ Kings’ 4-0 goal in Game 6 came in no small part due to an inadvertent collision between linesman Pierre Racicot and Devils defenseman Anton Volchenkov:

Thoughts and Thanks!!

Last night was painful, there is no denying that. A lot is being made about the Bernier hit and I will admit that I was frustrated about it last night. The refs clearly missed a hit on Gionta, which led to Bernier taking his frustrations out on Scuderi. Was it a dumb hit? Yes.  Should it have been a major penalty?
