You serious about this? The series was very nearly a sweep and with the Devils having very little answer to the kings. The Devils you remember were demoralized and not sure what to do after going down 3-0 in the series.

Give them some credit for gutting out a game 4 win in LA in a game that could have gone either way.

Back in NJ for game 5 the Kings dominated and somehow lost.

Back in LA the Kings finished the deal and did what they should have done in game 4 and hammered the lifeless Devils 6-1. The Devils were never even remotely in game 6. Stick a fork in, done like dinner.

The only thing that even made that series appear close is the Kings having expended more energy getting to the final in the tougher WC. For instance it being hard to even make the playoffs in the WC.


As for goals scored the Devils last season played the Florida Panthers, Philly Flyers, and NYR. Not exactly world beaters at keeping the puck out of the net. The Panthers and Flyers particularly being abysmal at the same. Take a look at who the Yotes had to play and without Raffi Torres..
