WASHINGTON - Braden Holtby made the only mistake in a game of stellar saves, getting caught behind the net and practically gifting Mike Cammalleri a third-period goal in the New Jersey Devils' 1-0 win over the Washington Capitals on Friday night.
Racing behind the net to clear the puck, Holtby instead passed it straight to Cammalleri inside the right circle ? a perfect setup had the two been wearing the same colour sweaters. Cammalleri easily drove his shot inside the far post with 10:22 remaining for his seventh goal of the season.
Corey Schneider made 30 saves for his first shutout of the season for the Devils, who have won two straight after a four-game skid. They also snapped the Capitals' winning four-game winning streak.
