The three goals in the period equaled the Devils’ total offensive output in the previous three games.
And New Jersey wasn’t done.
Hedberg kept the shutout intact with a sparking glove save on Alexander Semin midway through.
“I liked that glove save,” Hedberg said. “That felt really good. That just gave me some confidence.”
“I’ve never been a guy who had a lot of shutouts, so it’s nice when I get one,” Hedberg said. “I think the guys showed that they really want to help me out, throwing themselves in front of pucks and diving in front of pucks to knock them out of the zone.”
Notes: The Devils presented a video tribute and a moment of silence for Pat Burns before the game. Burns, who died on Friday after a long bout with cancer, coached the Devils to the 2003 Stanley Cup championship. The team will wear memorial “PB” patches for four straight home games. The jerseys will then be signed by the players and auctioned off with the proceeds going to a cancer hospice in Burns‘ memory. … Caps RW Mike Knuble missed a second straight game after taking a puck in the face. … The Devils recalled D Mark Frayne from Albany (AHL) on Monday. … Semyon Varlamov, recalled from Hershey (AHL) on Monday, was the Capitals‘ backup goalie. … Semin and Ovechkin each had five shots to lead Washington.
