The Washington Capitals traveled to New Jersey to take on the Christmas clad Devils for the first time this season. It’s also the 900th game that Alex Ovechkin and Nicklas Backstrom have played together on the Caps.
Kyle Palmieri slipped an early power play goal by Ilya Samsonov to kick things off. Alex Ovechkin from Nicklas Backstrom like clockwork. Backstrom put his own away only seconds later.
Blake Coleman tied the game on an odd man break to start the second frame and Nicky put home his second of the night to end said frame. John Carlson from Michal Kempny below the offensive zone dots. Jonas Siegenthaler with a snipe to extend the lead and Richard Panik added on. Devils got a garbage time goal.
Caps beat Devils 6-3!
