How They Got Here
The sixth-seeded Devils advanced to the Stanley Cup Final for the first time since 2003 by defeating the top-ranked New York Rangers in six games in the Eastern Conference Final. After the Devils defeated the Rangers at Madison Square Garden in Game 5 with the series tied 2-2 — matching the result from the clubs’ epic Eastern Conference Final in 1994 — 22-year-old rookie forward Adam Henrique reversed the series outcome of 18 years ago by sending the Devils to the Stanley Cup Final with the winning goal in overtime of Game 6. Goaltender Martin Brodeur again proved a nemesis to his cross-Hudson rivals, posting a 4-2 record, 2.01 goals-against average and .927 save percentage.
