So, the Kings and the Devils. Los Angeles brings a staggeringly good 8-0 road record into Newark for games one and two. If they can continue this good fortune, a California Cup is all but assured. I suspect New Jersey will hold serve, however, and at least gain a split in the first two games, and that this series will go a long way. Both teams are speedy and can score, so it oughta be fun to watch!
The Devils knocked off some big-name goaltenders on their way to the final, but at no point in the playoffs did either Bryzgalov or Lundqvist approach the performance of the Kings' Jonathan Quick. I look for him to be the Conn-Smythe Trophy winner, and for the Stanley Cup to go to the Kings in six.
