Mike Knuble added his second point of the night as Washington took advantage of a turnover by the Devils in their defensive zone. Alex Ovechkin set up the goal with a pass across the width of the ice to John Carlson, who found Knuble sneaking in from behind the net. Knuble finished off the play for an easy score on the home team's defensive breakdown.
The Devils are leading in shots on goal 20-8, but that doesn't help them much on the scoreboard when Michal Neuvirth is on his game. The young goaltender has made some very nice saves and looks comfortable in net.
