Braden Holtby nets shutout as Capitals down Jets
Question of the Day
“I could have probably stopped those ones from the side,” Ribeiro said. “(They) weren’t dangerous shots like they had at the start and we knew that.
“We just played simple. Our (defensemen) chipped the puck out most of the time and let the forwards race for it a lot of times. That’s what we need on the road, just a simple game.”
Washington scored first during a possession that looked as if it was going to cost Winnipeg more than a goal.
Winnipeg forward Blake Wheeler slid to block a point shot by Capitals defenseman John Erskine and then buckled to the ice in pain.
Wheeler was still lying on the ice during the goal. He was helped off by teammates as he kept his weight off his right foot.
Despite looking like a bad injury, Wheeler was back on the ice a few shifts later and finished the game.
Jets coach Claude Noel said Wheeler “has probably a heavy-duty bone contusion” on the side of his leg.
Jets forward Anthony Peluso left the game in the first period after getting into a fight with Capitals forward Aaron Volpatti, who was playing his first game after being picked up on waivers.
Peluso, who got in the most punches on the helmetless Volpatti, is “week to week” with a hand injury, Noel said.
The Capitals turned the tables in shots on goal in the second period, outshooting Winnipeg 13-4. They kept the pressure going in the third and it paid off with goals 52 seconds apart.
Noel said he thought his team played hard and it would have helped if they’d scored on the power play.
Winnipeg is 1 for 32 on the power play in its past 12 games.
