Newark, NJ (Sports Network) - The New Jersey Devils did something on Saturday that no one else had done in these playoffs, won a game at home against Los Angeles.
Thanks to 25 saves from Martin Brodeur, the Devils took a 2-1 win over the Kings in Game 5 of the Stanley Cup Finals at Prudential Center.
Los Angeles came into the game a perfect 10-0 on the road and were looking to become the first team in history to win 11 in one playoff year away from home. Also, the team was hoping to wrap up its first Stanley Cup championship in franchise history.
The Devils, though, got goals from Zach Parise and Bryce Salvador to again stave off elimination. New Jersey has won the past two games after dropping the first three, including a pair of 2-1 overtime losses at home to kick off the best-of-seven set.
Justin Williams scored the only goal while Jonathan Quick made 17 stops for the Kings, who will have to win at home in Game 6 on Monday if they want to claim the title.
