The NHL's Frozen Frenzy, which featured all 32 teams in 16 matchups in one night, was a huge success. As a result, 30 teams are off to prepare for later matchups.

There is one game on the post-Frenzy that will still have the NHL's attention. The Washington Capitals (1-3-1) are set to go on the road to take on the New Jersey Devils (3-1-1).

The Capitals are coming off a 4-1 home loss to the Toronto Maple Leafs after a huge game from center Auston Matthews and goalie Joseph Woll. The Devils went on the road to take down the Montreal Canadiens 5-2. New Jersey scored three goals in the third period with two of them coming from right-wing Tyler Toffoli, who had three total goals on Tuesday night.

The Capitals are looking to avoid a four-game losing streak on Wednesday night. They will need to have a much more productive on offense as Washington only averages 1.2 goals per game with six total goals scored in five games. Center Dylan Strome has scored two goals in only ten shots this season. Strome will need more opportunities if the Capitals want a chance to upset the Devils.

The Devils can continue to play their high-speed productive offense against the Capitals' reliable goalies. The Devils are averaging four goals a game and have yet to score under three goals all season.

Devils center Jack Hughes is playing at an elite level by accounting for 14 points with four goals and ten assists. New Jersey has four players who have scored three or more goals this season.

The biggest concern is the defense as they allow 3.2 goals per game. They are coming off their best defensive performance by only allowing the Montreal Canadiens to score two goals.
