from Pierre LeBrun of ESPN, So the sense of humor is alive and well after two season-saving victories.
Surely—it was suggested in jest—New Jersey Devils GM Lou Lamoriello vividly recalls the miracle comeback of the Toronto Maple Leafs in the 1942 Stanley Cup finals against Detroit?
“I wasn’t born yet, but thanks,” Lamoriello chuckled in an interview Sunday with ESPN.com.
Lamoriello’s Devils are only halfway toward matching the 1942 Leafs, the only team in NHL history to erase a 3-0 series deficit in the Cup finals. It doesn’t get any tougher than trying to stave off elimination yet again Monday night in a tough barn in Los Angeles, where the Kings you know will be intent to finally wrap this up in front of their home fans after two failed attempts against the pesky Devils.
And yet, there’s an aura of calmness around these Devils. You could sense it Saturday night in a 2-1 win. From head coach Pete DeBoer to 40-year-old netminder Martin Brodeur, there was never a sense of panic e...

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...

LOS ANGELES -- Marty McSorley, you're good.
Same goes for Essa Tikkanen and Roberto Luongo. New Jersey Devils forward Steve Bernier --- with one of the worst-timed and ill-advised checks in NHL playoff history --- has let you all off the hook as Stanley Cup Final goats.

The sound you heard was a sigh of relief from New Jersey Devils forward Zach Parise has he scored his first goal in six games for the New Jersey Devils.
That being said, it's not just Parise that has found the sledding to be tough, the New Jersey Devils top forward line of Zach Parise (1g-0a-1pts), Travis Zajac (0g-2a-2pts) and Ilya Kovalchuk...
Well, they gave the Los Angeles Kings a brief scare, but Zach Parise and the New Jersey Devils just weren’t enough to down the NHL’s Western Conference champions in the 2012 Stanley Cup Finals. And while his decision is likely further down the road, Parise faces the choice of testing the free-agency market or staying [...]
NEWARK, N.J. -- Bryce Salvador scored on a deflection off a defenseman and the New Jersey Devils derailed Los Angeles' Stanley Cup coronation for a second time, beating the Kings 2-1 in Game 5 of the finals Saturday night. Zach Parise ended a five-game goal drought on a rare mistake by goalie Jonathan Quick, and Martin Brodeur stopped 25 shots to help the Devils end the Kings...
The New Jersey Devils defeated the Los Angeles Kings 2-1 tonight to force a Game 6 in LA Monday night.
I believe all the pressure is now on the Kings to win Monday (their game 7) in order to avoid making another cross-country trip and face even more pressure of a real Game 7 on Wednesday.
Watch the game-winning goal from Bryce Salvador midway through the 2nd period.
Steve Bernier received 5 for boarding and a game and while on the penalty kill, the Devils allowed 3 power play goals.
The score at the end of the 1st period is 3-0 LA.
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. "After going through 82 games without a goal, I'll take any goal I can get," said Salvador, who broke...
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...
Hello everyone and welcome to the next and FINAL addition Masala Monday. While the main goal of this segment wasn’t necessarily accomplished, I hope you guys have at least enjoyed reading it. The last time I talked to you guys, our New Jersey Devils were about to begin their Stanley Cup Final matchup with the Los Angeles Kings. It’s been days since then and currently the Kings...
In the tradition of last year... remmeber, a big ol' [sic]. This year, it's in bullet points because I am lazy as hell.
When you look at the LA Kings logo sideways, it looks like a wild animal or some sort of skull with teeth
Eveyrone has awesome beards except for Zach Parise. He looks like he belongs on “Svaed by the bell: the millennium class”
At least Kings...
Watching the New Jersey Devils attempt to become the first team in seven decades to come back from a 3-0 deficit in the Stanley Cup final is causing Glenn ''Chico'' Resch to have flashbacks.
Before you get too excited: Resch wasn't a member of the 1942 Toronto Maple Leafs, the only team in NHL history to win the Stanley Cup after trailing 3-0. But he knows about...
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:
