Kings vs. Devils: Martin Brodeur Will Keep LA from Hoisting Cup in New Jersey

Martin Brodeur has certainly had his high and low points during his 18-year NHL career. The 2012 Stanley Cup Playoffs have provided both, but he'll need to be outstanding to keep the LA Kings from improving on their NHL-record 10-0 playoff road record.

Brodeur and his team were in dire straits following a 4-0 loss in Game 3. They responded with a 3-1 win.

Should New Jersey do the same in the next three games they'd be just the second team to recover from a 3-0 hole in the Stanley Cup Finals.

The Toronto Maple Leafs accomplished the comeback in 1942, beating the Detroit Red Wings.

New Jersey Devils coach Peter DeBoer believes his team is just the squad to do it. Just a year after missing the playoffs, he believes the Devils can be just the third team since 1942 to rebound from an 0-3 playoff deficit.

"You know it's going to happen again," he said per a Boston Herald article. "So why not us? I think that's the approach. You're not going to go 200 years without someone else doing it. So it's been long enough, it might as well be us."

But before they can think about Game 7, the Devils have some work to do.
