We'll select goals, hits, saves and other clips from the 2012 Stanley Cup Playoffs that require your opinion. There's no wrong answer ... we simply want to know what you think.
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

Life's about opportunity and how you respond to that opportunity, and obviously he must have some swagger about him, some confidence about him, because he was solid. He made some good saves. He was 6-foot-3 on every shot, which is a good thing for a goalie. He played well. We got a win.
