The Los Angeles Kings didn't close out the New Jersey Devils when they had a chance in Game 4 on Wednesday night at Staples Center in front of the home fans. That's the bad news. The good news is that every remaining game of the Stanley Cup Final will be televised on NBC, including Saturday's Game 5 in New Jersey. Here are the relevant details of Saturday's contest:
Time: 5 p.m. PDT
Location: Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey
Home Away From Home: You may have heard this before, but the Kings are undefeated on the road during their amazing playoff run. Ten times they have worn the white sweaters on enemy ice, and 10 times they have won, including a pair of overtime wins in New Jersey in games 1 and 2. The Kings' playoff road winning streak actually extends to 12 games, including last season.
Game 5 Rebound: In three of their four playoff series, the Kings dropped Game 4 at home after a 3-0 series lead, only to rebound with a Game 5 overtime win on the road. The Kings beat the Vancouver Canucks 2-1 on April 22 to close out the first round, then concluded the Western Conference Finals with a 4-3 win over the Phoenix Coyotes with a 4-3 win on May 22.
