Capitals Defeat Devils at Home, 3-1
    The New Jersey Devils were defeated at home by the Washington Capitals 3-1, on Friday, March 29, 2002.
    Kevin Constantine put Patrik Elias and Petr Sykora on a line with Joe Nieuwendyk - which was anticipated by many when the trade happened.   The line combination did not happen sooner because both Elias and Sykora had been ill with the flu.
    Patrik Elias gave the Devils a 1-0 lead at 10:01 of the first period by beating Olaf Kolzig with a nice shot.   Elias's 26th goal of the season was assisted by Petr Sykora.
    Andrei Nikolishin beat John Vanbiesbrouck at 14:37 of the first period to tie the game, 1-1.
    The first period ended with the game tied.   Shots were also tied, 7-7 in the period.
    Ken Daneyko had an excellent opportunity to end his goal scoring drought just 40 seconds into the second period, but failed to put the puck past Kolzig.
    There was no scoring in the second period - each team had a single 2 minute power-play, but was unable to convert.   The Devils outshot the Capitals 9-4 in the period.
    At 9:55 of the third period, Peter Bondra scored for the Capitals to give them a 2-1 lead.
    With John Vanbiesbrouck on the bench for the Devils, Peter Bondra got an empty net goal at the 19:00 mark of the third period to take away any hope for a Devils comeback.
    The game ended with the Capitals winning, 3-1.   The Devils outshot the Capitals 11-5 in the third period and 27-16 in the game.
    Jim McKenzie, Sergei Nemchinov, Andreas Salomonsson, Andrei Zyuzin, and Mike Commodore were the scratches for the Devils.
