In a Stanley Cup Final in which every break, every timely bit of luck and every fortunate bounce of the puck went the Kings' way over the first three games, nothing broke their way in Game 4 Wednesday at Staples Center.

Breakaway shots flew wide or high or were gobbled up by New Jersey Devils goaltender Martin Brodeur.

Anze Kopitar and Justin Williams fired shots that bounced off the left post - Williams' shot coming so close to going in the red light actually went off for a brief moment indicating a score.

Only it wasn't.
