On Saturday, June 24th, 1995, the New Jersey Devils defeated the Detroit Red Wings at Brendan Byrne Arena in East Rutherford, New Jersey to win the 82nd Stanley Cup Finals four games to none. It was the first Stanley Cup championship for the Devils franchise, and the first that was won in New Jersey. These are the top five players that I felt most stood out during the series.
