Game 44: Devils Beat Capitals 2-1 in Overtime

    The New Jersey Devils defeated the Washington Capitals 2-1 at home in overtime on Saturday, January 17, 2004.

    Here are a few of my pictures from the game.

    Jaromir Jagr beat Corey Schwab 7:30 into the first period to give Washington an early 1-0 lead.   The first period ended with the Capitals leading the Devils, 1-0.   The Devils outshot the Caps 10-8 in the period.

    Patrik Elias beat Olaf Kolzig just 46 seconds into the second period on the power-play to tie the game, 1-1.   Elias' 14th goal of the season was assisted by Scott Niedermayer and Brian Rafalski.

    Rob Skrlac picked up a few more NHL penalty minutes when he fought Stephen Peat at 3:36 of the second period.   The two earned their minutes and gave the crowd a good show, as they scrapped for quite some time.

    The second period ended with the teams tied, 1-1.   The Devils outshot the Capitals 9-7 in the period.

    There was no scoring in the third period.   Patrik Elias recorded his second goal of the game at 2:17 of the overtime to win the game for the Devils.   Elias' 15th goal of the season was assisted by Brian Rafalski and Scott Gomez.

    The Devils now lead the season series, 2-0-1.   The teams will meet one more time before the end of the season, in Washington on February 19, 2004.

    The Devils honored the Captain Scott Stevens prior to the start of the game.   Stevens was on hand for the brief ceremony, but did not play in the game, due to an unknown health problem.
