The New Jersey Devils are suddenly hoping that the Los Angeles Kings' road magic is contagious.
After rolling through Philadelphia and the New York Rangers in the previous two rounds by winning eight of 10 to reach the Stanley Cup finals, the Devils are quickly understanding what it is like to be ambushed by the Los Angeles Kings, who have won 10 straight away from home.
For the second straight game, goalie Martin Brodeur and the Devils were beaten 2-1 in overtime by the Kings, who have carried an invincibility throughout the playoffs.
''We can't do anything (about it now),'' captain Zach Parise said Saturday night of the two home losses. ''We're down 2-0. It's hard, but we're not going to quit. We'll regroup, try to win Game 3 and go from there.''
That one will be Monday in Los Angeles, and Game 4 will be played on Wednesday. If the Devils can get at least one of those, they will host Game 5 next Saturday night.
