NEW YORK – June 11, 2012 – Day 62 – The NBC Sports Group continues its exclusive coverage of the Stanley Cup Final with Game 6 tonight at 8 p.m. ET on NBC. The Los Angeles Kings return home after their first road loss of the 2012 Stanley Cup Playoffs against the New Jersey Devils on Saturday night. The Kings, who won the first three games, lead the series 3-2, but the Devils have won the past two despite being on the brink of elimination.

With a Game 6 victory, the Kings can win their first Stanley Cup. The Devils, however, are trying to become the first team in 70 years — since the 1942 Toronto Maple Leafs (vs. Detroit) — to win the Stanley Cup after being down 0-3. They won Game 4 at Los Angeles, 3-1, and Game 5 at home, 2-1.
