New Jersey's championship hopes were all but dashed a week ago. The Devils lost the first three games of their Stanley Cup Finals series with the Kings. They lost two overtime contest at home, followed by a shutout in Los Angeles.
Facing seemingly impossible odds, the Devils have rallied, and are just one victory away from forcing a Game 7.
The Kings will host Game 6 at STAPLES Center on Monday night. The contest is set to get underway at 8:20 p.m. ET in Los Angeles. You can see the game on NBC. If you can't get to a television, you can watch a live stream of the Kings vs. Devils here.
No NHL team has ever come back from a 3-0 deficit to win the Stanley Cup. Two teams have forced a Game 7, but both lost in the winner-take-all match.
The Devils have found some success against Jonathan Quick, after struggling to score in the first three games. New Jersey scored five goals in Games 4 and 5 against the goaltender. They scored just two goals in their three losses.
L.A. has a chance to close out the series at home, but they might feel more comfortable playing on the road. The Kings loss on Saturday was their first road loss this postseason. Los Angeles is 10-1 away from STAPLES Center in the playoffs.
Betting Odds: Kings -165, Devils +145
Prediction: Los Angeles has been consistently dominant this postseason. Expect Quick to have another good game. The Kings are too good offensively to score less than two goals for a third straight game. The Devils have done a good job remaining competitive in every game, but L.A. should close out the series on Monday night.
Predicted Score: Kings 3, Devils 2
