Devils host game one of Stanley Cup Finals

Posted:

In the Stanley Cup final that hardly anyone saw coming at the start the season, the sixth-seeded New Jersey Devils will be home tonight against the eighth-seeded L.A. Kings. The Devils were 2-0 against the Kings in the regular season, including one shootout win.

The Devils are in the Stanley Cup finals for the fifth time and are looking for their fourth title. New Jersey captured the Cup in 1995, 2000 and 2003, with its only finals loss to Colorado in 2001. Goalie Martin Brodeur has been there for all the finals appearances, and could call it a career at age 40 once this series is over -- win or lose.

The Kings have reached the finals for just the second time in team history. Los Angeles is still looking for its first Stanley Cup championship, having lost in five games to Montreal in 1993.

The Kings have won an NHL-record eight straight road playoff games -- the first team to do it in one playoff year. Overall, the Kings are 12-2 in this year's playoffs. The game airs tonight at 7 Iowa time on KWWL.
