Having trouble scoring goals? Missing your top two rightwings? Back-to-back games against Martin Brodeur and the red-hot Devils should cure what ails you.

Some numbers:
All that said, these are winnable games for the Caps because they'll be low-scoring games and the Devils don't blow teams out - they've only won two games by more than two goals since the New Year (both against Montreal). The Caps will have their chances. The question is, can they take advantage of those opportunities and surprise a Conference giant?
