Holtby makes 35 saves and Caps blank Jets 3-0
WASHINGTON 3, WINNIPEG 0

WINNIPEG, Manitoba (AP) -- Washington Capitals goaltender Braden
Holtby was happy to share the credit for his third shutout of
the season.



Holtby stopped 35 shots and Mike Ribeiro had a goal and an
assist and the Capitals blanked the Winnipeg Jets 3-0 Saturday.



"Goalies usually get too much credit for the good and too much
blame for the bad, that's how it goes," Holtby said.



"You could see in a game like this, it's not a shutout for
myself, that's a shutout for the team."



Matt Hendricks and Todd Brouwer, with his team-leading ninth
goal of the season, also scored as the Capitals improved their
record to 8-11-1.



Winnipeg goalie Ondrej Pavelec made 18 saves for the Jets, who
had a three-game winning streak ended.



The last time the Jets went scoreless at home was Jan. 12, 2012,
in a 2-0 loss to San Jose. The last time they were shut out was
in a 3-0 loss in Montreal on Feb. 5, 2012.



Evander Kane says the Jets need to move on to the next game.



"We're going to have to put this one behind us," Kane said.
"We've got (four) on the road here so we've got to be ready to
go and be the road warriors again like we were last time."



The Jets (10-10-1) won four of five road games before coming
home to beat New Jersey 3-1 on Thursday before being shut out
for the first time this season by the Capitals.



Just 41 seconds into the game, the Jets had to kill a penalty
when forward Bryan Little was called for holding.



The Capitals only got one shot on net with the man advantage,
and it was their only shot during the first 10 minutes of the
period.



Winnipeg ended up outshooting Washington 15-5 in the scoreless
first.



Ribeiro said those stats are deceiving because several of them
weren't quality chances.



"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.



The play continued and Hendricks redirected a shot by Ribeiro
that went over Pavelec's shoulder and into the net at 10:56 for
Hendricks' fourth goal of the season.



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.



Brouwer scored when his wrist shot went over Pavelec's glove at
3:24.



Ribeiro then flipped the rebound of an Alex Ovechkin shot over
Pavelec's stick at 4:16 for the 3-0 lead.



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.



"The numbers aren't great and they haven't been great," Noel
said.



"We've been winning in spite of it, and we knew that this could
happen so we just know that it's got to come around."



Note: The Jets head out for a four-game road trip next week,
with a pair against Florida, one against Tampa and the last
against New Jersey on their way home.
