|NJ Devils Keep Faith Despite Cup Finals Deficit
|EL SEGUNDO, Calif. (AP) -- Although Martin Brodeur seems likely to return next season with the New Jersey Devils, the 40-year-old goalie also isn't convinced their current season is over just yet.
While Brodeur acknowledges the enormity of New Jersey's plight in the Stanley Cup finals, the three-time NHL champion has been in plenty of tight spots with teams playing a whole lot worse than the Devils.
New Jersey faces the prospect of becoming the first team swept out of the Cup finals since 1998, but the Eastern Conference champions realize how close this series has been.
Coach Peter DeBoer says the Devils don't deserve to be down 0-3 to the Los Angeles Kings, who could win their first title in Game 4 on Wednesday night.
