The New Jersey Devils are beginning to find their identity and are on a three-game winning streak heading into Monday night’s game against the Washington Capitals.

The Capitals have won three of their last four contests and are off to a decent start. However, Washington has yet to find a way to win the trip as the Capitals are 0-2-0 outside his One Arena.

The Devils’ first two games weren’t great, but they got off to a very impressive start to the season. Their 3-2-0 record may not look like much on paper, but the underlying numbers hold great promise for the rest of the season.

Washington Capitals

The Washington Capitals got off to an average start to the season. They say he is 3-3-0 but unfortunately has lost some key pieces due to injury. Playing without Niklas Backstrom, Tom Wilson, Karl Hegelin and Conor Brown had a huge impact on their offensive production. The Capitals’ expected goal percentage is 46.1%, which ranks him 25th among other teams in the league. They also rank 25th in expected goal difference with a rating of -1.84.

The Capitals’ biggest concern so far is their special teams. Over the past decade, they have been known to have one of the deadliest powerplay units he’s ever had, but last season they started seeing a drop in production that carried over into this year. rice field. The Capitalsman Advantage unit conversion rate is only 23.8% of his, and his penalty kills are even worse. They have a penalty killing unit where he ranks 28th, which he converts only 66.7% of the time.

Another source of concern is the goaltending situation. Washington, as most people know, brought in Darcy Kemper, who helped the Colorado Avalanche win the Stanley Cup last season. However, Kuemper was plagued with a cup hangover earlier this year. Sure, he has his 3-2-0 record, which is fine, but right now he’s skating at .899 SV% and his 3.04 GAA. Kemper needs to step up his game for the Capitals to win consistently.

The Devils may not light up the stat sheets, but their offense is absolutely buzzing. The Devils currently lead the league in expected goals percentage (65.64%) and average shots per game. With a number of 39.2, they are second in the league.

This three-game winning streak has awakened the Devils’ big shot. Jesper Bratt had 5 assists during the winning streak, Nico Hischier had 2 goals and 4 assists, Ondrej Palat had 3 goals and Jack Hughes also had 1 goal and 2 assists.

New Jersey has no problem creating an offense, but they definitely need to do a better job at the finish.

On the defensive side of the pack, the Devils are better. They minimized the amount of shots on goal and just per game he surrendered against 21.2 and Mackenzie his Blackwood got off to a strong start in blue paint. Blackwood he started the season 3-1-0 with a .904% SV% and a 2.02 GAA for him.

The Devils have been great during this streak, so I hope the momentum continues.

Capitals vs. Devils pick

After a poor first two games of the season, the Devils have become one of the league’s biggest surprises, at least statistically speaking. New Jersey may not be the best team, but they have a lot of talent on their roster and can compete with every team in the league.

The Capitals need to tighten things up a bit and find a way to play better on the go.The Caps have scored just four goals in two road games but have played very well at home. The battle with the Devils team that is in should continue.

I think the Devils will continue to ride the momentum they gained during this streak. I trust Blackwood between pipes. I like the devil to keep this train running.
