NEWARK, N.J. - Yes, Peter DeBoer noticed a couple of things behind the New Jersey Devils bench during Game 4 of the Stanley Cup final in Los Angeles.

But the Devils coach managed to keep his concentration on the ice, and not on porn star Taylor Stevens, whose, uh, assets couldn't be missed during the televised coverage of the game.

DeBoer initiated gales of laughter Friday afternoon when he was asked about his team's focus, considering the Devils were down 3-1 in the best-of-seven entering Game 5 Saturday.

"To focus?" DeBoer said. "I thought that question was going to be about the lady behind our bench last game. I thought we were heading that way. You saw my 100% focus on the game. That's discipline, I'll tell you."

Did DeBoer's wife notice his focus?

"Yeah, she saw the focus," DeBoer said.

Stevens told celebrity gossip website TMZ she deliberately tried to distract the Devils with her low-cut top. It didn't work, as New Jersey registered a 3-1 victory to force Game 5.
