For Daryl Sutter, it's about not feeling pressure. For Pete DeBoer, it's about getting a good start.

The Los Angeles Kings and New Jersey Devils both took to the ice to prepare for Game 5 of the Stanley Cup Finals at Newark's Prudential Center.

Neither team will change a thing, which is probably for the best. The Kings had the effort they wanted out of Game 4, just not the result. The Devils got their first win of the series after inserting Petr Sykora and Henrik Tallinder, so there's no reason to alter a good formula.

Devils coach Peter DeBoer emphasized getting a good start. "I think we've pushed hard enough in first periods of games in this series to grab the lead at different points," he said, "but Quick either has made a big save or they made a good defensive play to keep us off the board. That momentum is important, for sure."

Kings bench boss Darryl Sutter says there's no pressure on his team despite losing for the first time Wednesday night. "The only pressure that the players should feel, or that you try to convey to them, is the pressure they put on themselves to be as good as they can be."

A concert by Roberto Carlos (not the soccer legend,I think) happened at The Rock last night, but once again we don't have a humid day here in the Brick City, so don't expect the ice to be too bad.
