Devils Arena pre game pump up!
The Kings can now say that they have won Game 1 of every series so far. They can also say that they are 3 wins away from their 1st ever Stanley Cup. Both goaltenders showed up. Jonathan Quick made 17 saves on 18 shots. Martin Brodeur made 23 saves on 25 shots. The 25th shot being scored on a breakaway by Anze Kopitar. It was a beauty of a goal. It came in overtime and Kopitar was patient patient patient as he skated towards the net. Kopitar waited until Brodeur made the first move and took his shot to win the game. Only 3 penalties were taken total. Two by LA, one by New Jersey. It was fun to watch the players get over the jitters they had at the start of the game. When teams meet up in the playoffs one team is from the western conference and one team is from the eastern conference. This might not sound like a big deal but think about it this way. The NHL season this year started on October 8th. Los Angeles and New Jersey played each other on October 26th. Since then Los Angeles has picked up Jeff Carter and Darryl Suter as head coach while New Jersey has 8 new players! So long story short these teams had to get a feel for each other. It was a physical, fast game. Los Angeles is now 9-0 on the road in the playoffs! That is wild! Game 2 of this final sereis is Saturday at 5:00 in New Jersey. Below check out photos of the game and videos!
