Newark, NJ (SportsNetwork.com) - Nicklas Backstrom scored a pair of goals and Alex Ovechkin notched a highlight-reel tally, leading the Washington Capitals to a 4-0 victory over the New Jersey Devils on Saturday at the Prudential Center. Mike Green also scored and Backstrom added an assist for the Capitals, who have won two straight and are 6-0-2 in their last eight games. Braden Holtby needed to stop only 21 shots for his second shutout of the season. (Ovechkin and Backstrom) carried us tonight, said Capitals coach Barry Trotz. We werent as sharp as we needed to be as a group. The big guys led the way when we needed a push. Cory Schneider was back in the net for the Devils, who were coming off a 3-2 shootout win over Tampa Bay behind rookie Keith Kinkaids first NHL win on Friday night. The veteran netminder finished with 17 saves. Wed all like to be more consistent, from me on out, said Schneider. I think as a group we can all be better every night. Green put the Capitals on the board just over three minutes into the second period, blasting a shot from the top of the right circle past a screened Schneider for his fourth goal of the season. The Devils nearly tied it on a goal mouth scrum with just under four minutes left in the second, but the Capitals counter-attacked on a bad New Jersey line change and increased their advantage with 3:22 remaining in the period. Jay Beagle carried the puck into the Devils zone and left a drop pass in the left circle for Backstrom, who ripped a shot off the post and into the net for his ninth goal. The Caps killed off a New Jersey power play early in the third period and Ovechkin gave Washington a three-goal lead at the 7:16 mark with a brilliant individual effort. Ovechkin, who twice hit the post earlier in the game, picked up a loose puck at center ice along the right wing, then slipped between New Jerseys Jon Merrill and Travis Zajac at the top of the right circle before cruising toward the top of the crease and lifting a backhand over Schneider for his 15th goal. I just wanted to make a move, said Ovechkin. It was a good play. A few minutes later, Ovechkin was pulled down on a breakaway and awarded a penalty shot, but Schneider closed the pads to deny him. He was dangerous all night, said Trotz about Ovechkin. He could have had five goals. He rattled a couple off the post, drew a penalty shot, scored a highlight goal. The Devils pulled Schneider with about three minutes to play and Backstrom scored into the empty net to seal it. They were fresher than us, bigger, stronger, faster, deeper, and their best players were their best players, lamented Devils coach Peter DeBoer. Ovechkin was very good tonight, Holtby was very good and that was not a great formula for us. Game Notes Beagle finished with a pair of assists, as did Colonia, New Jersey native John Carlson ...

"The sting from yesterday is not something we hid from or pretend didnt happen," Dineen said.ORLANDO, Fla. -- With possibly two lottery picks in next years draft, the Orlando Magic clearly have an eye toward the future. They may already have their two building blocks now. Arron Afflalo scored 21 points, rookie Victor Oladipo added 15 points and eight assists off the bench, and the Magic beat the Atlanta Hawks 109-102 on Sunday night to give them back-to-back victories for just the third time this season. Oladipo, the No. 2 pick in last seasons draft, also had five rebounds. "Hes pretty impressive and hes just starting this thing," Magic coach Jacque Vaughn said. "You get a pulse from him and a sense from him that he wants to do something special." The Magic have shied away from giving Oladipo a specific role. "His versatility is why weve stayed away from saying hes a point guard or a shooting guard," Vaughn said. "Hes a basketball player, and theres nothing wrong with saying that." Afflalo is no newcomer to the NBA. He entered the league in 2007 with the Detroit Pistons. But in his second season with the Magic, hes emerged as a star player. His game-time status, due to a turned ankle Friday night, was uncertain. But Vaughn said he didnt hesitate to play Afflalo after the guard told him pregame that his ankle was fine. "As soon as a player tells me theyre ready to go, then Im ready to go," Vaughn said. "So no trepidation." Jeff Teague scored 22 points for the Hawks in their second game without two-time All-Star Al Horford, who is out indefinitely with a torn right pectoral muscle. The Hawks were also coming off three straight, grinding overtime games, the latest of which was Saturday night at home against Charlotte.dddddddddddd While Afflalo and Oladipo led the way for the Magic, their victory was helped along by the kind of balanced team effort that would please any coach. All five Magic starters scored in double figures, as did two players off the bench. "Across the board, we had a lot of guys contributing," Vaughn said. "That all starts with guys sharing the basketball." The Magic overwhelmed Atlanta both inside and in transition, outscoring the Hawks 46-26 in the paint and 22-13 on fast breaks. The Hawks were coming off three consecutive overtime games, including one just the night before, at home against Charlotte. The Magic led most of the game, and held a 12-point lead several times in the second half. But the Hawks made a fourth-quarter run, eventually taking a three-point lead. But a 9-0 Magic run midway through the final quarter was too much for Atlanta to overcome. "I dont know when fatigue comes in," Atlanta coach Mike Budenholzer said. "Obviously, we had enough to come back and take the lead. I think you have to give Orlando credit more than anything. They made some plays and their defence picked up and we werent able to execute. We couldnt attack. They got deflections and steals." NOTES: It was Kyle Korvers 100th consecutive game with at least one 3-point shot made, extending the Hawks forwards NBA record. . The Magic had a season-high 30 assists. . It was the first time this season that the Magic won when the opposing team scored 100 points. Entering the game, they were 0-14 whenever the other team scored in triple digits.
