Capitals vs Devils Third Period Thread

NHL: Washington Capitals at New Jersey Devils Noah K. Murray-USA TODAY Sports

After a grim four-shot first period, the Capitals got down to business in the second. Goals from Brett Connolly, Evgeny Kuznetsov, and Tom Wilson means it’s 4-1 Caps after 40. Nicklas Backstrom also notched his 50th assist of the season. Hopefully they can keep this momentum going after intermission, because they looked good in this middle period.

Kyle Palmieri update: nothing official, but he did not return for the second.

Take a breather, third period coming up...
