More about hockey fashion: Caps vs. Devils in NJ. But just passed a guy wearing a Flyers hat and Sharks jersey. My head almost exploded out of sheer frustration.

About the home team, which was shut out for the second time in HOTF and is 2-5-0: Struggling to believe THIS is the (Devils) team that’s 23-4-2 in their last 29. The mites at intermission looked better.

Arena rating: 3.28 out of 6.00
