Karl Alzner was happy with the resiliency the Capitals showed in their 3-2 overtime loss to the Devils.
Coach Adam Oates had described his team as "fragile" a day earlier. The message was sent, as they went down 2-0 but came back to grab a point. "We've been a pretty weak minded team the last few games," defenseman Karl Alzner said. "Tonight was the first night we showed a little bit of resilience and actually battled. ... Everyone was just so mad at the way we were playing and the results that we're not getting. No one's happy about that, so guys were battling as hard as they possibly could."
