The Washington Capitals hung on to beat the New Jersey Devils 5-4 to sweep all eight meetings between the teams this season. The Caps provided plenty of offense and made sure to close out the Devils down the stretch to secure the big win.

Travis Zajac gave the Devils a 1-0 lead with a goal at 3:17. The Caps would even things up at 9:16 with a nifty backhanded goal by T.J. Oshie. Alex Ovechkin and Brenden Dillon had the helpers and it was Oshie’s 11th of the season.
