Devils look to get back on winning track against Capitals

Dec 10, 2007 - 3:05 PM New Jersey (16-10-3) at Washington (10-17-2) 7:00 pm EST

WASHINGTON (Ticker) - The New Jersey Devils had their nine-game winning streak snapped on Sunday. They'll try to get back on the winning track when they visit the Washington Capitals on Monday.

The Devils had 12 losses in their first 19 games and were struggling to find any sort of consistent offense in front of goaltender Martin Brodeur and a normally stout defense. But a nine-game winning streak put them back top in the hotly-contested Atlantic Division.

New Jersey averaged over 3.5 goals per contest during the streak, and allowed more than two goals just once.

But the rival New York Rangers brought them back down to earth in a 1-0 overtime win on Sunday, during which the Devils managed just 17 shots on goal.

The Capitals have also had a hard time scoring this season, despite the presence of superstar left wing Alex Ovechkin. Washington ranks last in the Southwest Division with just 71 goals scored in 29 games.

New Jersey earned a 3-2 win last Friday against the Capitals, holding Ovechkin - who has four goals in his team's last four games - scoreless.
