Another power play, another missed chance.
That’s not a statement exclusive to either the Kings or the Devils. It applies to both teams in this game, and we’re not going to lie: This Game 4 hasn’t been the most offensively entertaining contest. It’s been pretty sloppy and pretty uneventful for the most part, but in a lot of ways, that may play into the Devils' hands.
The Devils aren’t finishing their chances; that’s nothing new in this series. But the Kings aren’t either, and they really aren’t challenging Martin Brodeur consistently. In stretches they are, yes, but for the most part, Los Angeles has been rather tame in the offensive end of the ice.
With the trouble the Devils are having scoring, their only chance might be a mediocre game from the Kings. So far ...
