Quick, name this year’s Stanley Cup foes

An unlikely duo, led by its goaltenders, will play for the NHL’s biggest prize
Los Angeles Kings goalie Jonathan Quick has been, well, quick this postseason. The 26-year-old leads playoff netminders in goals-against average (1.54) and save percentage (.946). He has eight road wins in as many starts, posting a 1.55 goals-against average and a .948 save percentage in those games.
Martin Brodeur is a four-time Vezina Trophy winner. He has played in 24 career Stanley Cup final games, posting a 15-9 record with a 1.91 goals-against, losing only a series to Colorado in seven games in 2001.
The Devils and Kings – led by their captain, Dustin Brown – are very similar in their approaches. Both want to establish the forecheck, create pressure and have it lead to offense.
Led by Ilya Kovalchuk – whom the Los Angeles Kings pursued in free agency before the Devils signed him – New Jersey is just the second No. 6 seed to reach the Stanley Cup final. The 2004 Calgary Flames, who were coached by current Kings’ head coach Darryl Sutter, were the other.
