Zach Parise Cashes In On A Jonathan Quick Miscue For New Jersey's First Power Play Goal Of The Series

The Devils power play was looking as inept as it had in the first four games of this series until Jonathan Quick gave them a gift.

Quick went out to play a soft dump-in from New Jersey and messed up the angle, sending it right onto the stick of Zach Parise, who jammed it home on the wraparound to make it 1-0 New Jersey at 12:45.

It was Parise's first goal of the series and his first goal against a goaltender since Game 4 of the Eastern Conference Finals (he had empty netters in Games 5 & 6). It was also New Jersey's first power play goal of the series.

The team to score first has won every game of this series, so a good omen early for the Devils.
