The Caps Capitalize by Momma Gouche

The Washington  Capitals were all over the Winnipeg Jets in the 1st period on the 23rd and the Jets were not able to keep the puck out of their end. Winnipeg had 4 power play chances, on which Andrew Kane was able to score on one. Kane was not able to get past Braden Holby on a penalty shot. Perhaps the Jets were not in good shape, having played an away game against the Buffalo Sabres the night before; which they squeaked by 2-1. Alex Ovechkin was ever present, getting a goal and an assist. The win by the Washington Capitals clinches their lead in The Southeast Division and gives them a playoff spot. The Jets have only one more door open for them to make the playoffs, and it is all iffy. They must beat the Montreal Canadiens on the 25th, but the Ottawa Senators or the New york Rangers have to lose some games. The Senators play the Capitals, away, on the 25th and the Bruins, away, on the 28th. The Ranger play the Hurricanes,away, on the 25 , and the  Devils, home, on the 27th. A slight chance the Jets will get to the playoffs, but if I stick to my  game plan …. we just might make it. However, as my Scottish father would say …” The best laid schemes of mice and men go aft agley!
