The Washington Capitals looked darn good in Tuesday’s convincing road win over the New Jersey Devils, who aren’t even really trying at this point.
Andre Burakovsky began the scoring with a smart release. The Devils replied with one second left in the first period, when the Caps got a bit careless in their own zone. The second period was a bonanza. Brett Connolly caught a pass from Djoos to hit twenty goals for the first time in his career. Then the Devils surrendered odd-man breaks to allow both Tom Wilson and Evgeny Kuznetsov to score. A speedy third period ended without a change to the scoreboard.

The Caps now return home for the single toughest game of the season. They’ll go in tired against the best team in the league, who will be rested. I can’t wait. Let’s see what they’ve got.
