In summary: Power Play Fail. Fayne Fail. Zidlicky Fail.
Besides the power play utterly gutting the Devils’ efforts, it should come to no surprise that two of three Fails listed here are defensemen. Because, honestly. This was a difficult game to watch. Whiffing on shots and passes? Check. Taking dumb penalties? Check. Not contributing much to make up for all that? Check. Kovalchuk obviously unhealthy but still getting a large amount of ice time? Check that too.
With a final score of 4-0, the Kings and their goaltender Jonathan Quick decimated the Devils.
