Capitals 3 Devils 2

Sorry my large staff of one has been in transit the last couple of days, but that didn't stop the Capitals from putting back-to-back wins together with a 6-3 victory over Atlanta on Saturday and a 3-2 victory over New Jersey last night. Jeff Schultz score 53-seconds into the second period to give the Caps the lead and Quintin Laing scored his first NHL goal that would eventually be the game winner. Olie Kolzig stopped 20 of 22 shots and the team looked much better then they did in last Friday's meeting with the Devils in New Jersey.

Of Note:
  • Jeff Schultz has goals in back-to-back games. He has 3 goals in his career.
  • Alex Ovechkin extended his most current points streak to 5 games with an assist on the Schultz goal. He has 9 points in the 5 games. His assist gives him 234 career points tying him with Joe Juneau for 25th on the Capitals All-Time points list.
  • The Caps scored their first power play goal in 4 games and did not allow New Jersey to score with the man advantage. Both teams had 3 chances.
  • The Caps out shot the Devils 24-22 and have out shot their opponents in each of there last 7 games.
  • Since Bruce Boudreau took over behind the bench 9 games ago, the Caps are 5-3-1 with 27 goals for and 23 against.
