This was a thriller in Game 1, as Anze Kopitar was the hero in the opener, scoring on a breakaway as the Kings improved to 13-2 in the playoffs. Los Angeles will look to stretch its road record to 10-0 as it takes on the Devils in Saturday's Game 2. The Devils managed just 17 shots on Kings netminder Jonathan Quick, but Los Angeles managed just 25 shots in the opener, its lowest total since a series-clinching win over St. Louis in Round 2. Get used to it. This will be a low-scoring series between two excellent goaltenders and solid defenses.
