Zach Parise’s father shared with him the story of when he played for the New York Islanders and rallied from a 3-0 series deficit to win a playoff series.
Parise, Travis Zajac and the New Jersey Devils took the first of four steps needed to complete the feat in the Stanley Cup Finals. They beat the Los Angeles Kings 3-1 in Game 4 to trim L.A.’s series lead to 3-1.
Game 5 is Saturday in New Jersey at 7 p.m. (NBC).
UND’s Matt Greene led the Kings with five hits and continued his dominant play on the penalty kill. The Devils were 0-3 on the power play and are now 0-13 in the series.
