Just a couple of days ago the prospect of seeing Mike Richards, Jeff Carter, and the L.A. Kings hoisting Lord Stanley's Cup seemed all but a formality. After two-straight Devils victories, New Jersey is only a win away from pushing the Stanley Cup Finals to the absolutely last game of the NHL season, a decisive game 7.
With the Phillies getting a much needed day off today, Stanley Cup Finals hockey is your best sporting TV option. It's playoff hockey with one team a win away from the greatest achievement in the sport. What's not to love. If the Devils pull off another victory tonight on the Kings' home ice, you'd have to think the Devils would become the favorite to take it all. Feel free to chat about the action in the comments.
8:00 start time on NBCSN. Keep an eye out for your intermission stat sheet showing up late.
