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."

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.

Boyd Off to Strong Start with the Capitals

Rookie forward takes advantage of opportunity in his first full NHL season

by Zach Shapiro @ShapZach / WashingtonCaps.com

Travis Boyd entered training camp focused on generating offense while playing responsibly in his own end. But after a strong showing in his first three preseason games, Boyd suffered a lower body injury which forced him to miss 10 regular season games. Boyd was cleared by the Capitals medical staff on Oct. 31 and was assigned to the Hershey Bears of the American Hockey League for a brief conditioning assignment. The trip to Hershey proved to be beneficial for Boyd, who appeared in two games for the Bears, recording an assist while slowly getting re-acclimated to game speed.
