Stanley Cup Final
Game 6
Los Angeles Kings vs. New Jersey Devils
Staples Center
Los Angeles, California
June 11, 2012, 8:00 PM EST

Here we go again. The Stanley Cup Final looked like it was going to be a quick affair as Los Angeles jumped to a 3-0 series lead. With Wayne Gretzky there to drop the first puck for Game 4 in front of an electric Kings crowd, L.A. looked poised to raise the Cup for the first time in franchise history.

Not so fast.

The New Jersey Devils not only took Game 4, scoring three goals in the third period, but they also squeaked by the Western Conference champions 2-1 in Game 5 to send the series back to the City of Angels.

Will the Kings finally put the Devils away? Or will New Jersey force a Game 7 and move one step away from becoming the second team ever to rally back from a 3-0 deficit in the Final?
