Washington confidently defeated its rival to reach the playoffs.

Washington and New Jersey faced off today at Capital One Arena. The teams are desperately fighting for the playoffs and this game had the status of a four-point game.

It didn’t take long for the hosts to show their advantage in the first minute: Alexey Protas shot at goal from the right wing circle and Connor McMichael immediately ambushed a rebound from Niko Dawes. Then, throughout the first half, there was an even game with a slight advantage for the “devils.” New Jersey finally scored one of these attacks: Nemets’ cross was blocked by Holtz.

In the second half, the visitors had more of an advantage, but could do nothing against the magic of Connor McMichael: the Canadian forward first surrounded Nosek with a handkerchief and then Dawes, literally rolling the puck towards the goal. The Kuznetsov case is still alive! Even in his absence.
