The Caps entered action in New Jersey against the Devils on Saturday not having played a good hockey game in seemingly forever. The Devs looked to force them to continue that dry spell as Alex Ovechkin was still searching for history.
Jesper Bratt’s silky mitts on a breakaway beat Ilya Samsonov to open scoring. Wayne Simmonds in front made it 2-0. Tom Wilson tipped home a John Carlson power play point drive to bring the Caps back into the game.
Alex Ovechkin has scored his 700th career goal.

Devils beat Caps 3-2.
The Caps have looked more like DoodleBob lately. https://t.co/0NIdm6oqNd

The boys are right back at it tomorrow against the Pittsburgh Penguins, everyone’s favorite opponent. Don’t show up against them in a good way this season and you will be embarrassed.
