It was like the end of the Wild Bunch if the Wild Bunch look bored while getting massacred by the Mexican army.
Friends, I love you too much to recap this game fully. I usually detail the goals here, but I like you too much to subject you to that punishment. Suffice it to say the New Jersey Devils scored a lot and the Washington Capitals did not score at all. The goals were ugly and avoidable. This was a solid hour of embarrassment– if only the Washington Capitals were capable of embarrassment.
This was the worst game of the Bruce Boudreau era. Devils beat Caps 5-0.
