SCF Game 6 Recap: Five minutes put an end to the Devils’ comeback

2012 Stanley Cup Finals, New Jersey Devils vs LA Kings

This isn’t the way I was hoping to prepare my final recap of the season.  I was hoping that we’d be celebrating something incredible on Wednesday night, but clearly, it was not meant to be this season.  After a pair of hard-fought victories by the Devils in Games 4 and 5, their season and the NHL season came to an abrupt halt on Monday night, as the Kings won their first Stanley Cup championship in their nearly half-century of existence.  Here’s how it all went down on Monday.

Stanley Cup Final Game 6 Preview: One Step Away From History – Why Not Us?

Stanley Cup Final – Game 6
Game Time: 8:00 PM
Radio: WFAN 660AM

We’re still alive!! That’s right, the Devils have fought their way back and tonight they have the opportunity to tie the series and bring it back to New Jersey for a Game 7.  I don’t want to get ahead of ourselves though. The team needs to focus on tonight’s game.

A hero has emerged in the last 2 games, one in Adam Henrique and the other, Captain Clutch, Zach Parise! Parise got the Devils on the board in Game 5 when Jonathan Quick came out to play the puck and Zach was in the right position at the right time and put it past him.  After the Kings tied up the game, the Devils continued to play their game and Bryce Salvador got the Devils on the board again when he shot the puck from the point and it went in off of Slava Voynov.

The first two games of the 2012 Stanley Cup Finals haven’t gone the Devils’ way.  That isn’t something that an expert analyst has to tell you.  The Devils dropped Games 1 and 2 at home, both by identical 2-1 overtime finals, with Anze Kopitar and Jeff Carter scoring goals in the extra period for the Kings.  If you look at the 2-0 series deficit that the Devils now face and the seemingly insurmountable task of defeating the Kings four out of five times to win the Stanley Cup, especially considering the Kings’ 14-2 record in the playoffs, there’s little reason for optimism, but in fact, there is much more reason to believe than those numbers might dictate.  If you’re in the mood for an optimistic view on the series, read on.  If you don’t feel like being optimistic, you probably shouldn’t read on.
