POSTGAME NOTEBOOK: Jets 4, Caps 1

Caps play well in Winnipeg but succumb to adversity and the Jets, Vrana shows a knack for the first goal, more

by Mike Vogel @VogsCaps / washingtoncaps.com

The Best Laid Plans - Playing two games in as many nights is hard enough in the NHL, but Wednesday night's back half of a set of back-to-backs was more difficult than normal for Washington as it suffered a 3-1 loss to the Jets in Winnipeg. The Capitals were without three key performers for most or all of Wednesday's game, and another stalwart's status is in down as the Caps move on to Denver to face the Colorado Avalanche on Friday.

Caps Fall 3-1 to Jets

Weary and undermanned, the Caps put forth a valiant effort in the second of back-to-backs but lost a 3-1 decision late

by Mike Vogel @VogsCaps / washingtoncaps.com

Ben Chiarot's shot beat Caps goalie Pheonix Copley on the glove side, snapping a 1-1 tie with 7:09 left in the third period and sealing the Caps' fate, and halting Copley's personal winning streak at three.

"It was deflected and kind of dipped," says Copley of Chiarot's game-winner. "Obviously it was one I would like to have, but an unfortunate break."

Back-To-Back - It's been more than a month since the Caps have had to play games on back-to-back nights, but that run ends tonight in Winnipeg when they face the Jets, a night after a 5-2 win over the Wild in Minnesota. Washington has won the front end of all three of its back-to-back sets, but it is winless (0-1-1) in the back half.

by Mike Vogel @VogsCaps / washingtoncaps.com

Whip It Good - Lugging a two-game losing streak with them on a weeklong, four-game road trip against quality opponents, the Caps were in need of a lift. They played to a pedestrian 2-2-1 mark during a just completed five-game homestand and are still finding consistency elusive as the season's first quarter nears its end.
