There are a few differences between the Los Angeles Kings and New Jersey Devils, but one of the similarities is that both clubs have four lines stacked with offensive talent and players who fit their roles like a glove.
The teams are pretty much matching the lines the way you’d expect them to be drawn up. Anze Kopitar and Dustin Brown versus Zach Parise and Travis Zajac. Adam Henrique and Ilya Kovalchuk versus Mike Richards and Jeff Carter. Both teams’ excellent fourth lines going toe-to-toe.
We have to imagine it'll stay like this until we see somebody strike first, and then Daryl Sutter or Peter DeBoer will have to adjust.
