Hockey Night Live Blog: Caps vs. Devils

Before we get started, I'd like to say that I'm live blogging tonight in honor of the Edmonton Oilers blog Covered in Oil.

Please join me as the Washington Capitals host the New Jersey Devils. The Caps are coming off an emotional, come-from-behind 4-3 victory on the road against the Pittsburgh Penguins on Friday night and are 3-1-0. In other news, Chris Bourque, son of Hall-of-Famer Ray, will be in uniform for Washington tonight after being called up. Brent Johnson will get the start in goal tonight in favor of Jose Theodore.

Last season, Alex Ovechkin accounted for more than 47% of the team's offense, but so far he's only scored two goals in the team's first four games. If anything, it seems that other teams are keying on Ovechkin mightily, yet the rest of the offense has suddenly kicked to life. The Devils are also 3-1, coming off a 1-0 win over the Thrashers in Atlanta. Tonight is the last game of four-game road trip for them as Martin Brodeur continues his assault on the record book. He better be on his game, as New Jersey has yet to score more than two goals in a game this season.

Join us after the jump.
