Devils at Kings Game 4: What Bettors Need to Know
By Covers.com

New Jersey Devils at Los Angeles Kings (-180, 4.5)

THE STORY:
The Los Angeles Kings are a win away from their first Stanley Cup title - and they'll have the Staples Center crowd on their side as they look to complete the sweep Wednesday against the New Jersey Devils. The Kings are coming off what may have been their best game of the postseason, a 4-0 victory highlighted by Jonathan Quick's third shutout of the playoffs. The young netminder is considered the odds-on favorite to take home the Conn Smythe Trophy if the Kings finish off the Devils in Game 4.

ABOUT THE DEVILS: Nothing is going right for New Jersey, which now needs to post four consecutive victories against one of the most dominant teams in playoff history. Even veteran  netminder Martin Brodeur, who appeared to have turned back the clock in the first three series but stopped just 17 of 21 shots in Game 3. The Devils had their chances to generate offense in Monday's defeat, but finished 0-for-6 on the power play. That included a stretch of 5-on-3 hockey that lasted more than a minute. "We've got to win four straight," said Devils forward Zach Parise. "That's our approach. Win the next one. That's all we can do."

ABOUT THE KINGS: Los Angeles has taken a level-headed approach to the postseason, and being a game away from the most coveted award in pro hockey hasn't changed anything. "We can't take anything for granted," said Kings defenseman Drew Doughty. "It could have been two-nothing for them before (Game 3)." Special teams was the difference Monday night, as the Kings killed off all six New Jersey man advantage opportunities while going 2-for-2 on the power play. The second statistic is more notable, given that Los Angeles had gone five games without scoring a man-advantage goal.

TRENDS:

- Kings are 9-1 in their last 10 playoff games as a favorite.
- Under is 7-0-1 in the last eight meetings.
- Under is 3-0-1 in the Devils' last four overall.

OVERTIME:

1. The Kings are the first team to take a 3-0 lead in each series since the playoffs expanded to four best-of-seven rounds.

2. The 1942 Toronto Maple Leafs are the only team in NHL history to rally from a 3-0 deficit to win the Stanley Cup.

3. A win in any of the next four games would make Los Angeles the first No. 8 seed to capture a Stanley Cup title.

NHL Preview

Devils @ Kings (3-0) -
West #8-seed Kings are on an amazing 15-2 playoff run, 5-2 here at Staples, where they can hoist the Stanley Cup tonight for first time in their 45 years of existence. OT goals in first two games had Kings pencilled in as a team of destiny, then they smoked NJ 4-0 in Game 3, scoring power play goals the only two times they had man advantage. Devils are 6-5 on road so far in playoffs. Kings are 2-5 on power play so far in series, Devils 0-13. Six of last seven King games stayed under the total. Only time a team rallied from down 3-0 to win Finals series was Toronto back in the early 40's; nothing is impossible, but the Kings are on a serious roll. Just seems like this is their time to celebrate.
