Kings, Devils Trade Goals 1 Minute Apart In 3rd Period

The Devils haven't had a bounce go their way seemingly all series, but 7:56 into the third period of a do-or-die Game 4, there she is.

A rebound popped out onto Patrik Elias' stick, and yeah, Jonathan Quick was bumped a little bit, but nevertheless, Elias was right there for the rebound. He's had a rough playoffs thus far, but what a time for the big goal.

Unfortunately for the Devils, though, the lead was short-lived. Just one minute after the Elias goal, following a questionable call that went against Devils forward David Clarkson, Drew Doughty flipped one through traffic that beat Martin Brodeur through the five-hole.

Kings fans can complain about the potential goaltender interference on the Elias goal. Devils fans can complain about the weak boarding call against Clarkson. At the end of it all, we're right back where we started: All tied up with less than 10 minutes to go in Game 4.
