Caps are flat on second game of back-to-back, get routed by Devils

When New Jersey’s Brian Boyle scored the Devils’ sixth and final goal of the game, fans started to serenade Copley, mockingly singing his name and he got back into position in net.

Washington Capitals goaltender Pheonix Copley hugged the post, attempting to seal off the right side of the net as the New Jersey Devils again swarmed in front of him. Blake Coleman’s shot found a hole anyway, and for a fourth time Thursday night, the Prudential Center goal horn sounded and Copley again tried to brace himself in net.
