Scouting the Devils

This is Game 5 of the Stanley Cup Finals between the Kings and the New Jersey Devils. The Kings lead 3-1 in the best-of-seven series. The Devils aren’t expected to make any lineup changes from Game 4, as they will stay with Petr Sykora at forward and Henrik Tallinder on defense. As always, both teams will put an emphasis on the start of the game, particularly since the team to score the first goal has won all four games so far. Rookie Adam Henrique, who scored the Devils’ go-ahead goal in Game 4, has scored four goals in 22 games in this postseason, and three of them have been game-winning goals. For the latest on the Devils, check out the coverage from the Star-Ledger and the The Record, followed by the possible lineups for the Devils and the Kings…
