The Washington Capitals looked to bounce back after their regulation defeat in Philadelphia a few nights ago. To do so, they would need to take advantage of a further sliding New Jersey Devils team that has lost three in a row, giving up five goals on average in those three games.
Nico Hischier, Nikita Gusev, and Blake Coleman kicked things off with three unanswered goals for the Devils. Jakub Vrana, newly promoted to the power play, got the Caps off the snide in the second. Hischier’s second restored their three goal lead not long after. Miles Wood empty netter.
Devils beat Caps 5-1.
Torts: “there is no more overrated stat than plus-minus.” 😍

Mitch Marner, TJ Oshie, David Perron and Quinn Hughes go to All-Star. Last men standing.

The Caps have three in a row coming also against the Metro Division. It’d be nice to win a couple of those.
