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 a 1-1 tie midway through the second period with a fluke goal, giving the 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 and the first time it's happened since 1945. The Devils' win also snapped a 10-game road winning streak for the Kings in the playoffs, which tied an NHL record. Zach Par...
BEST OF MAXIM
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...
When Peter DeBoer had finished tossing verbal bouquets toward his captain, Zach Parise, the New Jersey Devils coach had an odd request for the assembled media at the Prudential Center.
"I think you guys just [ticked] him off," DeBoer said. "Keep doing it."
Parise's tour de force performance in the Devils' 2-1 win over the Los Angeles Kings in Game 5...
HAVE A CIGAR
Following his meltdown outside the Staples Center during Game 4 of the Stanley Cup Finals, Charlie Sheen has now been offered a few perks by the Devils for Game 5.
Ilya Kovalchuk didn't leave the Thrashers on the greatest terms back in February of 2010. It was a forgone conclusion that he was gone, and it frustrated fans of the Thrashers because of his platitudes all season long. He talked the talk of wanting to stay here, and then poof. Off to New Jersey. Lots of fans, myself included, were unhappy, especially when word leaked out...
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.
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...
In retrospect the NHL probably should have stuck with its’ old Stanley Cup Final campaign, “history will be made,” because the New Jersey Devils are on the verge of doing just that.After going down 3-0 in the series to the Los Angeles Kings, the Devils have made a triumphant comeback to cut the series lead to just one game and put the brakes on what seemed to be an all but...
There were a lot of ‘firsts’ that came from tonight’s 2-1 Game 5 win for the New Jersey Devils. Most importantly, for the first time this postseason the Kings looked outside of their element and have watched the Devils inch back into the series.For the first time since 1945, a team trailing 3-0 in the Stanley Cup Final has forced a Game 6. How did the Devils do it tonight...
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...
Now here we are........please note this obviously could be the last game of the season tonight. If not, the scene shifts back to New Jersey on Wednesday for a Game 7.
It is Monday already and time for Game 6 of the Stanley Cup Finals between the Los Angeles Kings and the New Jersey Devils. When you have an eight seed up against a six seed, one has to say that this is just...
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...

This is something that many Los Angeles Kings’ and New Jersey Devils’ fans are wondering when it comes to tonight’s Game 6 of the Stanley Cup Final at the Staples Center.
What these fans, along with those in the hockey media, are wondering is if the Devils can come back from a 3-0 series deficit to tie the series and force a Game 7 at the Prudential Center on Wednesday night...
