Devils score AP

Well folks, we’ve got ourselves a series. The New Jersey Devils beat the Los Angeles Kings, 2-1, tonight at the Prudential Center. Game 6 of the Stanley Cup finals goes Monday at the Staples Center with the Kings leading the series, 3-2.

Game 5’s game-winning goal came courtesy Bryce Salvador, whose point shot deflected off Kings defenseman Slava Voynov and past Jonathan Quick at 9:05 of the second period.

Martin Brodeur was brilliant, stopping 25 of the 26 shots he faced and battling all the way.

New Jersey’s other goal was scored in the first period by captain Zach Parise after a stick-handling gaffe by Quick. The goal was also the Devils’ first on the power play in the series.

For the Kings, the loss represents the first real bit of adversity they’ve faced in the playoffs, and it’s coming at a most inconvenient time.

The comments section is all yours…

    I may be biased ’cause my Devils are in it, but this is why The Stanley Cup play-offs is the best championship run in any sport!

    I fear a Bruins-like 3-0 meltdown for the Kings.

    In the battle between the City of Devils and the New Jersey Devils, the Guidos are kings.

    So much for the Kings winning streak on the road!

    This game proved what a liability Dustin Brown is. Captain of the team on the bench for the end of the game. His cheap shot artist play can only get you so far before karma kicks you in the butt.
    Can’t wait til Game 6. Awesome puck handing by Jonathan Quick!!!
