Game 33: Devils Fall to Caps, 3-2, Late Rally Not Enough

    The New Jersey Devils were defeated, 3-2 in Washington by the Capitals on Friday, December 27, 2002.

    Here are a few of MY PICTURES FROM THE GAME.

    With just 7.7 seconds left in a good first period for the Devils, Steve Konowalchuk beat Brodeur to give the Capitals a 1-0 lead.

    The first period ended with the Capitals leading, 1-0 but outshot by the Devils, 8-5.

    The Capitals got goals 53 seconds apart (at 16:36 and 17:29) from Peter Bondra and Jaromir Jagr to give the Capitals a 3-0 lead after two periods.   The Devils outshot the Caps 12-9 in the second period.

    The Devils rallied in the third period, breaking their 13-game drought of no goals on the power-play.

    Jamie Langenbrunner wrecked Olaf Kolzig's hopes of a shutout just 1:07 into the third period, on the power-play.   Langenbrunner's 10th goal of the season was assisted by Patrik Elias and Brian Rafalski.

    Sergei Brylin recorded his 8th goal of the season at 13:12 on the power-play.   Brylin's goal was assisted by Brian Rafalski and Patrik Elias.

    Joe Nieuwendyk had a glorious chance to tie the game with only 3:12 remaining, but Kolzig was able to get his glove on the puck.

    The late rally was not enough - the game ended with the Capitals winning, 3-2.   The Devils outshot the Caps 11-3 in the third period and 31-17 in the game.

    The game was the first half of a back-to-back home-and-home series, with the second half to be played on Saturday at Continental Airlines Arena at 8:00PM.

    Oleg Tverdovsky (flu) and Christian Berglund (healthy) were the Devils scratches.

    I will be attending both games, so updates to the site will be delayed.
