Particularly Jonathan Quick, who posted his third shutout of the postseason after setting a franchise record with 10.
"He looks good," said Brodeur, who at age 40 is 14 years older than Quick. "I mean, Quick makes the saves that he needs to make. There's no doubt. But they're hard to play against. Put it that way.
"He's not seeing great quality chances. We don't have any room to get better shots on him, so we've got to find a way. It's not the work ethic, just execution."
The Devils played in the Pacific time zone for the first time since late October, and needed a plane to get to a road game for the first time since April 26 after playing Philadelphia and the New York Rangers in the previous two playoff rounds.
"I don't think that affected us at all, really," Parise said. "I thought we had good energy and we had good legs. Besides, both teams had to do it. It's not like we had a lack of jump or anything like that. The opportunities have been there for us. The difference is that they've been scoring on theirs and we haven't."
The other two teams that rallied from 3-0 deficits to win a series were the 1975 New York Islanders in the quarterfinals against Pittsburgh, and the 2010 Philadelphia Flyers in the Eastern Conference semifinals against the Boston Bruins.
