POLL: Can the Devils Pull Out A Championship?
The pressure is shifting in the Stanley Cup finals — or is it?
Many hockey fans thought the Stanley Cup finals could have been over earlier this week with the Los Angeles Kings winning their fourth game Wednesday, ending the playoffs.
But the New Jersey Devils weren't going to be forgotten that easily.
Down three games to zero, the Devils came back to win on Wednesday with a score of 3-1, forcing another game between the two NHL teams at Newark's Prudential Center. Then, Saturday night, the Devils rose to the occasion again, besting the Kings 2-1 and sending the series back to Los Angeles.
It was the first time the Kings have been defeated on the road during the playoffs and the first time they have lost two in a row post-season.
Now, New Jersey fans are rooting for their hometown favorites with a renewed energy and belief.
Do you think it's possible for the Devils to come back and win the championship? No team has ever come back from an 0-3 Stanley Cup finals deficit to win the cup.
