The Los Angeles Kings are a game away from winning a Stanley Cup after turning the NHL odds on their head in Round 1. With history in sight can the No. 8 club come through against the New Jersey Devils in front of the California home crowd?
According to Bovada’s Stanley Cup futures, the Kings have a resounding advantage in Game 4. It would be hard to believe otherwise given the momentum they’ve built up over the course of the series. Is a sweep in the cards?
Having slain the top three seeds in the Western Conference already, all that stands between the scorching L.A. franchise and their first cup in team history is a standout performance between the pipes from legendary Devils goaltender Martin Brodeur.
Even if the future Hall of Famer had matched his Kings counterpart Jonathan Quick in Game 3, we may have found ourselves looking at a vastly different moneyline. Alas, the Brodeur in net in 2012 is a far cry from his 2003 equivalent, leaving a lot of the pressure on the New Jersey trio of Ilya Kovalchul, Patrik Elias and Zach Parise.
Can the Devils turn things around before it’s too late, or will L.A. put the finishing touches on their heroic postseason before the end of the week.
