New Jersey Devils        

The Devils ride into this evening’s matchup sporting a weak 9-10-4 record. With more losses than wins this season, it’s safe to say that 2018 is not panning out the way New Jersey hoped. Considering they’re coming off a playoff appearance, this is not the start New Jersey fans were hoping for. Nevertheless, it’s still early in the season and there’s plenty of time for the Devils to make the proper adjustments. Unfortunately they’re pegged against a top dog this evening and will have their hands full on the road. Looking at the stats, it’s clear that New Jersey will be outmatched offensively. Right now Washington ranks 6th in the league in scoring while the Devs rank 20th. Since they’ll be on the road, they’ll probably have an even harder time finding the net.

Players to Watch: Taylor Hall (7 G, 17 A, 24 PTS.), Kyle Palmieri (12 G, 9 A, 21 PTS.), and Travis Zajac (7 G, 7 A, 14 PTS.).

Washington Capitals

The Caps enter this evening’s action flashing a 14-7-3 record that nets them 31 points on the season. That 31 point tally ranks Washington 2nd overall in the Metropolitan Division. In fact, Washington is just one-point away from tying with the division leading Columbus Blue Jackets. Seeing as how they enter this evening’s matchup riding a 6 game winning streak, it’s safe to assume that they’ll make quick work of the ailing Devils at home.

Players to Watch: Alex Ovechkin (18 G, 10 A, 28 PTS.), Nicklas Backstrom (6 G, 22 A, 28 PTS.), and John Carlson (5 G, 21 A, 26 PTS.).
