Holtby, Backstrom lead Capitals past Devils

NEWARK, N.J. (AP) Speed, strength, talent and depth. The Washington Capitals had it all against the New Jersey Devils and it showed.

Braden Holtby made 21 saves, Nicklas Backstrom had two goals and an assist and Alex Ovechkin scored a highlight-reel goal as the Capitals continued to roll with a 4-0 victory on Saturday night.

"I think we're doing what we've wanted to do all season, but we're now finding a way to do it consistently," Holtby said after posting his second shutout of the season. "We're using our speed and size to our advantage. There aren't a lot of teams who can match up with us there. We now know it's our strength."
