Taking advantage of a five minute major for boarding handed to Steve Bernier in the first period, the Kings scored three goals during the major power play – one each from Dustin Brown, Jeff Carter, and Trevor Lewis.  The Devils never had a chance after that, as the team that had scored first in the Final was 5-0 up to that point.  Carter would score another and Adam Henrique would keep his team from being shut out at the end of the second period, but all that achieved was a bit of dignity.  The Kings would add two more, one into an empty net and one right after Martin Brodeur was replaced, and closed it out with a 6-1 win.

Bernier's hit will live in infamy

Right wing Steve Bernier and the rest of the Devils' third line did so much good work for the team during the run into and including the Stanley Cup final.
