Yep, we've got a Game 6 on our hands as the New Jersey Devils won again on Saturday night to reduce the series deficit to 3-2, making things very interesting indeed. One more win would push the Stanley Cup Finals in to a decisive Game 7 on Wednesday, the Los Angeles Kings are no doubt very keen to prevent that. Just 5 days ago the Devils were 12.50 to lift the cup, now they're down to 4.20 and have a lot of momentum.
New Jersey captain Zach Parise has had a quiet series, but he led the way two nights ago with his intensity when he capitalised on Jonathan Quick's slightly wayward pass around the boards and showed quick hands to slam the puck home before Quick could make it back to cover his net. It may have taken going 3-0 down but the Devils have amped up their efforts and it's a different looking team to earlier in the series. For their part, the Kings need to get back in the face of Martin Brodeur, it's now them struggling offensively with just two goals over the last two games.
I feel inclined to go with LA to win again but at just 2.05 the odds are pretty short already despite their slight struggles in the last couple of outings, NJ are back at 3.25 which is great value but with so much on the line and goals at a premium I think this one could be set for overtime. With no more than 4 goals in any of the games so far, few total goals is also a good option.
Best Bet: Kings versus Devils to go to overtime at 3.55
