Holtby helps Caps down Jets

Winnipeg, MB (Sports Network) - Braden Holtby made 20 saves to notch his second consecutive shutout of the Winnipeg Jets in the Washington Capitals' 4-0 triumph at MTS Centre.

Alex Ovechkin aided Holtby's cause by registering a goal and two assists, while Nicklas Backstrom scored once and assisted on Ovechkin's tally in the victory. Troy Brouwer and Marcus Johansson also lit the lamp for Washington, which posted a 3-0 decision in its most recent visit to Winnipeg on Mar. 2 behind a 35-stop effort by Holtby.

The Southeast Division leading Jets lost for just the second time in five games, with Ondrej Pavelec accumulating 21 saves in the setback.
