The Capitals came to Winnipeg needing two wins in regulations to get back into the playoff hunt. Mission accomplished. Washington is within five points of first place in the Southeast Division after a 6-1 win over the Jets Friday at MTS Centre. Mike Green added a goal in the third period, on a screen provided by Brooks Laich in front of Winnipeg goaltender Al Montoya.
Listen to the final moments here, as the Capitals improve to 14-16-1 on the season. The road trip concludes Sunday in New York against the Rangers.
