Kings Vs. Devils, Stanley Cup Finals 2012 Game 4: New Jersey Stays Alive With 3-1 Win

The celebration will have to wait. Two third period goals kept the New Jersey Devils alive, and an empty net goal sealed the deal as the Devils beat the Los Angeles Kings 3-1 in Game 4 of the Stanley Cup Final Wednesday night at Staples Center, prolonging the Kings' quest for the Cup.

The Kings lead the best-of-seven series three games to one. They have lost only three games this postseason, with the only three losses coming in Game 4.

Patrik Elias scored at 7:56 of the third period to give the Devils a 1-0 lead, but the Kings quickly answered 62 seconds later with a Drew Doughty goal. That set the stage for Adam Henrique, who beat Jonathan Quick with 4:31 left what proved to be the game-winning goal.

Martin Brodeur saved 21 of 22 shots for the win. Ilya Kovalchuk added an empty net goal in the final minute to provide the final margin.

Game 5 will be Saturday night in New Jersey. The Kings are 10-0 on the road this postseason. The good news for Kings fans: every game from here on out will be shown on NBC.
