Los Angeles, CA (Sports Network) - The New Jersey Devils lived to fight
Adam Henrique's goal with 4:31 to play was the winner as the Devils took a 3-1
win over the Kings to avoid elimination in Game 4 of the Stanley Cup Finals
from the Staples Center.
The Devils hadn't held a lead in the series and were coming off an
embarrassing 4-0 loss on Monday, but they got 21 saves from Martin Brodeur and
goals from Patrik Elias and Ilya Kovalchuk to send the series back to New
Jersey, where Game 5 will be played on Saturday night in Newark.
New Jersey still has a big hill to climb as only three teams have crawled out
of a 3-0 deficit to win a series. One of those was in the Cup Finals, though,
as the 1942 Toronto Maple Leafs rallied for four straight to defeat the
Detroit Red Wings.
Jonathan Quick allowed two goals on 23 shots while Drew Doughty scored the
lone goal of the game for the Kings, who are looking for their first Stanley
Cup championship in franchise history.
