LOS ANGELES — It is a pleasure to spend time around a successful coach such as Pete DeBoer, who doesn’t feel the need to belittle professional journalists covering the Stanley Cup playoffs or strike a pose as the man who wants to win more than anyone else in the world.

The Devils reflect the equanimity presented by DeBoer throughout the tournament in good times and bad, much as the Bruins followed the lead of coach Claude Julien on their way to last year’s Cup; poised from the start to the finish line that is now in sight.

It bears remembering the Devils are still twice as far away from attaining historic victory as they are from the summer in confronting a third consecutive potential elimination match in tonight’s Game 6 that will surely test the stamina of 40-year-old Martin Brodeur and his fellow senior travelers. The seeds of doubt, however, have been planted in a Kings team that has faced an absence of adversity in a run to a 15-2 record in the tournament prior to Game 4.

"Quite frankly, all the players are getting paid too much and all the contracts are too long," general manager Lou Lamoriello said. "But if you want to compete in this market and you want to win, there are some things you have to do."

Even (N)Єverson today was very kind to the Devils, which is weird because he always takes the negative slant:

-- From the hole that has been an escape-proof grave for 70 years, the Devils still held their beaten heads high. “I’d rather be,” Dainius Zubrus said, “in this locker room than anywhere else.” The other locker room was all high-fives and champagne as the Kings celebrated their first Stanley Cup last night. Yet the Cup runnerup Devils proclaimed pride in their team and their season. Zubrus, whose 15-year quest to return to the finals came up Stanley Cupless again, said he preferred the team that dreamed, the one that fought back from missing the playoffs last season, from trailing in every series this spring, that put a scare the 70-year streak without 0-3 finals comebacks.

-- Typical on this team of class gentlemen, Bernier stood up and faced the media music.

-- Still, only two victories shy of a fourth Cup, the Devils came a long way from missing the playoffs last year for the first time in 14 seasons.

(N)Єverson never writes about the Devils like that!
