Devils-Capitals Final Score: New Jersey Falls To Washington 3-1

The New Jersey Devils played host to the Washington Capitals on Friday night at the Prudential Center in Newark to kick off game one of their two-games series.

And they’re not off to a good start.

That because the Capitals were able to pull ahead in the third period and never looked back, winning by a final score of 3-1.

The Devils drew first blood in the opening frame when Adam Larsson (assisted by Dainius Zubrus and Patrik Elias) wristed one in at the 13:06 mark to put the homers up one-zip.

Washington tied it up in the second stanza thanks to Alex Ovechkin’s wrister (assisted by Dennis Wideman and Nicklas Backstrom) with less than two minutes to play in the period.

The Caps scored the go-ahead goal to open the third period on a short-hander by Jason Chimera (assisted by Troy Brouwer and John Erskine) before Marcus Johansson (assisted by Karl Alzner) made it academic with a 13-foot backhand at 10:33.

The Capitals improve to 10-4-0 with the win while the Devils drop to 7-6-1 in defeat.
