Capitals go for weekend sweep of Devils

The New Jersey Devils will stand a better chance against the Washington Capitals on Sunday if they can put together a 60-minute game.

The Devils needed little time to reflect on what went wrong in Saturday's 5-2 loss to the Capitals, the first game of a two-day doubleheader and a five-game homestand.

"As a group, from the goalie out, that first period was as bad as I've seen out of our group," coach Lindy Ruff said.
