Stanley Cup final

After taking a 3-0 series lead and then losing two potential clinching games, the Kings finished ferociously at Staples Center just when the sixth-seeded Devils appeared to have a chance for one of the biggest comebacks in finals history. One penalty abruptly changed the tone of the series. Brown, Carter and Lewis scored during a five-minute power play in the first period after Steve Bernier was ejected for boarding Rob Scuderi, leaving the veteran defenseman in a pool of blood. Jonathan Quick took it from there, finishing a star-making two months by allowing just seven goals in six finals games. Quick was awarded the Conn Smythe trophy for postseason MVP.
