The New Jersey Devils have quite a task ahead of them when the Stanley Cup Finals move to the West Coast Monday.
The Los Angeles Kings came away from their trip east with a 2-0 lead in the championship series following a 2-1 overtime victory on Saturday. The King are now 14-2 in the playoffs, including 10-0 on the road. Kings goaltender Jonathan Quick saved 49 of 51 shots during the first two games of the series.
Ilya Kovalchuk leads New Jersey with 18 postseason points, but has no points in the first two games of this series. Devils goaltender Martin Brodeur was tested frequently during the first two games, allowing four goals on 61 shots.
The Devils are 6-4 on the road during the playoffs.
