The Capitals may not be getting much out of Ovechkin recently but they are getting great play out of Alexander Semin. He has five goals and five assists during the Capitals winning streak. He had a career-high five points in Wednesday's 5-1 win over Carolina. "He's on a roll right now," said linemate Nicklas Backstrom. Semin gets to play on the same line as Ovechkin and he has taken advantage. "I hope he's going to play the same way - he's going to be the best player in the league," Ovechkin said. Ovechkin had a goal and an assist in the win and has scored in two straight games after going nine straight without scoring.
New Jersey has not played well since losing Brodeur to injury and it doesn't look to get any easiesr. "We've got to find a way to stay in the hunt," Devils coach Brent Sutter said. "We're not going to use excuses. The easiest thing to do is say it's injuries. The bottom line is, the guys who are playing have to be rock solid." New Jersey has lost three straight and is up against it on Friday against a red-hot Washington team. "We're playing hard and doing a lot of good things, but we're making too many mistakes," Devils captain Jamie Langenbrunner said. "They're killing us and we're not capitalizing on our opportunities."
