Winnipeg Jets 4 Vs Washington Capitals 2 = Home Game Loss

The Washington Capitals weren't very good in the season opening game, this past Saturday. Like the score shows, they weren't much better in the home opener on Tuesday night (January 22, 2003), when they lost to the Winnipeg Jets.

The Capitals looked just like what they were, a team undergoing change in the early days of a lockout shortened -2012--2013 NHL Hockey season. Although they had the advantage (?) of a couple days off, it was the Caps that looked like the tired bunch. They were not as sloppy as in game one, but several players just didn't put in the effort.

Discipline was out the window in this game too. Washington outdid Winnipeg in penalties, eight to six. The Jets outdid the Caps on the power-play, two to one. It wasn't until 18:44 into the third period, before right-wing Troy Brouwer (1 Goal) scored Washington's lone PPG. Forward Matt Hendricks (1 Goal, 2 Fights) got their first goal ten minutes into the game, at even-strength.

Other relevant statistics: Nicklas Backstrom (C) earned two assists, while Alex Ovechkin (LW/RW) and Mike Ribeiro (C) were credited with one each. Ondrej Pavelec earned the win for the 'Peg, while Caps goaltender, Braden Holtby, certainly partially guilty in earning the loss.
