The surprising New Jersey Devils look to keep the good times rolling Friday night when they host the Washington Capitals at the Prudential Center, a game that features two of the highest scoring teams in the NHL.
That the highly skilled Capitals (2-1-1) scored 16 goals and averaged four per game to start the season is not stunning, especially with superstar Alex Ovechkin accounting for half that total and recording a pair of hat tricks in the first two games.
The Devils (3-0-0), though, scored the fewest goals in the Eastern Conference each of the last two seasons. So, to see New Jersey score six goals in each of their last two games, and 16 in the opening three games, is rather shocking.
