With the Kings and the Devils crossing paths in the 2012 Stanley Cup Final this spring, it's no surprise that the matchup has been a collision course -- literally -- in pursuit of hockey's greatest prize. It's been a long road to the top of their respective conferences for Los Angeles and New Jersey this postseason, so with everything on the line in the Cup Final, each team has been as determined as ever to disrupt their opponents' rhythm and win puck possession battles on every shift.

With game-breaking hits shifting the momentum on numerous occasions in this series, it's time to take a look at each team's best hit of the series and determine which was best.
     
1. Kings' captain Dustin Brown catches Zach Parise off-guard in Game 1, drilling the Devils' captain in the neutral zone.

2. Devils' blueliner Anton Volchenkov thumps Kings' forward Trevor Lewis to force a turnover in the first period of Game 3.

Quote of the Day

If you want to prove people wrong, you've just got to go out and do it. Yeah, we blew 3-2 series leads the last two years, but no one is going remember that if we go out there on Saturday night and beat these guys and go play in the Stanley Cup Final. We need to get back to work and we'll start to do that tomorrow.
