NEWARK - Devils fans began congregating in Championship Plaza outside the Prudential Center for Game 1 of the Stanley Cup finals as early as 6 a.m. this morning.

Most of those fans were waiting in line for wristbands that would allow them to purchase left over tickets to the first game.

Other fans were greeted by many opportunities to support their squad, with vendors selling T-shirts and pucks. There was also a giant letter D where fans could write messages of encouragement.
