Devils ready to scare Kings

2012 stanley cup finals odds devils kings

NEWARK, N.J. (AP) - Winning Game 4 of the Stanley Cup finals kept the New Jersey Devils alive.

For one game, Martin Brodeur and the Eastern Conference champions showed they could not only play with the Los Angeles Kings, they could beat them, too.

Posting a 3-1 victory in Los Angeles on Wednesday prevented the Kings' coronation ceremony and forced the NHL to pack up the Cup and ship it back to New Jersey for Game 5 Saturday night.

Now comes the hard part for coach Peter DeBoer and the Devils. They have to follow it up with another win over a team that has posted a 15-3 mark in the postseason and not lost consecutive games.

If New Jersey can somehow find a way, though, the Cup will be up for grabs.
