The Devils are 5-1 in their last 6 road games and 1-5 in their last 6 overall. The Capitals are 9-3 in their last 12 Tuesday games and 5-1 in their last 6 overall. The over is 5-2 in Devils last 7 road games. The under is 3-0-1 in Capitals last 4 overall. The Devils are 1-7 in the last 8 meetings in Washington and 5-21 in the last 26 meetings.

The New Jersey Devils are a team that just can't get out of their own way, and they haven't won back to back games since February 16-18. The Washington Capitals appear to have right the ship over these last two weeks and they're playing a Devils team they've treated like a punching bag over the years. The Devils simply don't beat the Capitals, and that includes an 0-3 record against them this season. I'll back the Caps at home and take the PL for extra betting value.
