3,629 - Number of shots faced by the two probable goaltenders in tonight's Caps/Devils game, Braden Holtby and Cory Schneider, who rank first and second in the League in shots-on-goal-against, irrespectively. Holtby and Schneider also rank first and third (respectively) in minutes and third and first (respectively) in saves. Schneider has a slight 2.17 to 2.18 edge in goals against average, and the advantage in save percentage, .928 to .924.
