Last night at Verizon Center:


1 NHL game played by Jeff Schultz, who made his debut last night, playing for an injury-ravaged defense. He was the second of Washington’s three first-round draft picks in 2004. Schultz, who is 6-foot-6 and 212 pounds, had been called up earlier but wasn’t used.


About 100 Caps fans, most wearing darkly tinted shades, heckled Devils goalie Martin Brodeur during his pre-game warmups. Brodeur’s complaints about Alex Ovechkin’s shield prompted the league to ban mirrored visors.


The left wing’s eight-game points streak, the second longest of his career, came to an end when he was shut down by the Devils.
