Kings Vs. Devils, 2012 Stanley Cup Finals Game 6: Traded Goals Keep Kings Up 4-1

It didn't come until the end of the second period, but the New Jersey Devils finally have a goal in Game 6 of the 2012 Stanley Cup Finals. Now they'll need three more at least in the third period to erase the Los Angeles Kings' 4-1 advantage and keep their hopes of hoisting the Cup alive.

L.A. ran its lead to 4-0 just 1:30 into the second period, with Jeff Carter wristing a shot past Martin Brodeur, but the Devils finally stemmed the Kings' tide that had rolled over them for the first 25 minutes or so by tightening up on the penalty kill. New Jersey gave up three power play goals in the first, but none in the second, despite racking up 26 minutes in the period.

And then Adam Henrique scored with 75 seconds left in the period to give the Devils a little bit of life, pushing the puck between Jonathan Quick's pads.

It's not much, but it's more hope than New Jersey had before, because something is better than nothing.
