Devils, Kings Matchup A Classic Battle Of Like-Styled Clubs

Two clubs with very similar styles will commence their battle for the Stanley Cup beginning Wednesday, and the battle to control the walls, dominate territorial play via the forecheck, and getting traffic in front of the opposing goalie may all end up being contributing factors for the eventual victor.

Zach Parise Didn't Touch Prince Of Wales Trophy

Zach Parise might never win the Prince of Wales Trophy again. He might never win a Stanley Cup, and it's very possible that Friday night could have been the pinnacle of his hockey career, at least as far as NHL championship trophies go.

When you think about it from that perspective, it makes sense that a captain would like to touch the conference championship trophy. Lift it. Carry it into the locker room. Enjoy it. You might never get here again.

But as is typical in the NHL, Parise joined a long list of team captains who have opted against touching the Wales Trophy. Instead, he called the rest of his teammates over for a photo op while the Prudential Center crowd chanted, "We want the Cup!"

Kovalsuck? Doc Emrick Just Mispronounced Ilya Kovalchuk's Name

Ilya Kovalchuk's name rhymes with a lot of funny words. One of those words is "suck," and yes, you heard Mike Emrick call him "Kovalsuck" as the third period wound down in Game 6.

Of course, we wouldn't be in overtime without Kovalchuk's power play goal in the first period, and he has seven shot attempts on the evening, including that goal. He doesn't really suck tonight, but that doesn't make this any less funny.
