Capitals-Devils Preview

(AP) -- Washington's recent surge already includes a win at New Jersey, and it's been almost 16 years since the Capitals won two straight over the Devils in the Garden State.

The Capitals look to continue piling up the points Saturday night with their second victory over the Devils in two weeks.

Washington (15-10-6) has put together a 5-0-2 stretch, including a 4-1 road win over the Devils (12-16-6) on Dec. 16. The Capitals haven't won back-to-back visits to New Jersey in a single season since January and February 1999.
