NEXT LEVEL: The Kings scored the first three goals of the game during a five-minute major power play despite holding the offensive zone for just 44.3 percent of the time. Los Angeles’ three goals all came within 30 seconds of entering the zone.

The Kings held the offensive zone 60.6 percent of the time on their other power play opportunities, but failed to score.

NEXT LEVEL: Jonathan Quick faced 76 shots in the Stanley Cup finals that were directed at the five-hole or his low stick side, allowing just three goals on such shots. Out of five locations (five-hole, low stick, low glove, high stick, high glove), Quick’s two best save percentages were his most frequented shots faced.

5 Hole 1.000 0
Low Stick .955 2
High Glove .944 1
High Stick .929 1
Low Glove .880 3<<
>>Including goal in Game 6

Quick’s worst save percentage was at the third location low in the zone, the glove side. Quick allowed his only goal on a low glove shot in Game 6, and posted a save percentage below .900 on such shots in the series.

NEXT LEVEL: The Kings peppered Martin Brodeur on his low stick side, but failed to score any of their five goals on Brodeur on such shots. When the Kings tried out Brodeur elsewhere, the result was five goals on 13 attempts – 2 high glove, 1 high stick, 1 low glove and 1 five hole.

Brodeur allowed eight goals to either his high stick or glove side in the Stanley Cup finals, including three in Game 6. In the first three rounds of the playoffs, Brodeur allowed eight goals total on high shots.

The Devils had a hard time beating Jonathan Quick, but they also had a hard time putting shots on net against him, especially when they lost. Over 50 percent of the Devils’ shot attempts were on goal in their two wins this series, but that number dipped under 46 percent in losses.
