The New Jersey Devils and Los Angeles Kings lock horns in game one of the NHL’s Stanley Cup final series on Thursday morning (AEST). The Devils claimed the Eastern conference title with a 4-2 win over the top seeded New York Rangers, while Los Angeles overcame the Phoenix Coyotes 4-1 to take the Western conference.
These teams met twice during the regular season, way back in October last year. New Jersey recorded a 2-1 shootout win on the thirteenth of that month before beating the Kings 3-0 away from home twelve days later. Despite those defeats, Los Angeles is the favourites to win the Stanley Cup.
