Capitals lose to Devils 5-0
Parise scored from a sharp angle on the right after receiving David Clarkson’s backhanded, between-his-legs pass from in front of goal. New Jersey’s synchronization and finishing quality highlighted everything the Capitals lacked.
From that point, New Jersey capitalized on Washington’s gaffes.
Parise’s second goal was an uncontested rebound following Ilya Kovalchuk’s shot from the top of the right circle. The puck squeaked between goalie Michal Neuvirth’s arm and body. The Devils gained possession on the play by stealing the puck at their blue line from defenseman Mike Green.
Former Capital Dainius Zubrus made it 3-0 after Washington forward Alex Semin turned the puck over on a clearing attempt.
“We take a bad penalty, two bad turnovers and the puck is in our net all three times,” Brouwer said. “You can’t come back from that.”
Parise scored his third after Capitals defenseman John Carlson turned the puck over along the boards exiting the zone. New Jersey turned it into a 2-on-1 after Green tried to jump a pass but came up empty.
Patrik Elias completed the scoring with a short-handed goal that resulted from another 2-on-1.
“Our power play is absolutely killing us,” defenseman Dennis Wideman said. “We’re making wrong reads. We’re not backing each other up when there’s a bouncing puck. We’re giving up breakaways and goals every game, and we’re not scoring or even creating a chance.”
“We looked like a timid, beaten-down hockey team,” he said.
