The Capitals are 1-4 in their last 5 road games and 4-1 in their last 5 games as a favorite. The Devils are 31-64 in their last 95 games as a home underdog and 0-4 in their last 4 home games. The over is 17-8-1 in Capitals last 26 games as a favorite. The under is 6-1 in Devils last 7 home games. The Capitals are 9-3 in the last 12 meetings in New Jersey and 20-6 in the last 26 meetings.

The Washington Capitals have shown signs lately of getting back on track and past years have shown us its not long before a run comes. The New Jersey Devils have been a tough team to figure out all season and they haven't had a great deal of success at home. Early games usually favor the home team and a win from the Devils wouldn't surprise me, but I have more trust in the Caps in this spot.
