Thanks to goals in the third period from Patrik Elias, Adam Henrique (game-winner, shown here, beating Jonathan Quick), and Ilya Kovalchuk (empty net), as well as Martin Brodeur stopping 21 of 22 shots, the New Jersey Devils averted a four-game sweep with a 3-1 win on the road Wednesday night over the Los Angeles Kings in game four of the Stanley Cup Final.  The series heads to Newark, New Jersey for game five, to be played Saturday night.  The Devils will try to do what they (as well as the Vancouver Canucks, St. Louis Blues, and Phoenix Coyotes) have been unable to do---beat the Kings in a playoff game at home.
