2012 Stanley Cup Playoffs

Devils vs. Kings: Live Blog, Highlights and Analysis of Stanley Cup Final Game 5

Isaac SmithAnalyst IJune 9, 2012

The New Jersey Devils host the Los Angeles Kings in Game 5 of the Stanley Cup Final tonight at the Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey, with the Kings leading the Devils 3-1 in the best-of-seven series.

The Devils were able to win Game 4 in Los Angeles to stave off elimination, with a 3-1 victory, but must find a way to win again at 8 p.m. ET tonight to keep their season alive.

A win for the Kings and the hockey season is over. But a win by the Devils and the series returns to Los Angeles for a Game 6 on Monday.

If you can't get to a television or you're looking to enhance your immersion in the game before, during and after the game tonight, Bleacher Report has the game covered on this live blog and other pieces throughout the evening.

I'll be updating this throughout the afternoon and through the game—including the time leading up to the puck drop to get you all set with everything you need to know about tonight's contest.
