Game #3 -- Jets 4 Capitals 2
Jets get their first win of the season tonight as they dominate the Capitals for a full 60 minutes.
The forward lines were as follows:
Kane - Jokinen - Wheeler
Ladd - Antropov - Little
Ponikarovsky - Burmistrov - Scheifele
Wright - Slater - Thorburn
Kane and Wheeler meshed well together and both had goals. Jokinen hasn't impressed me yet. A lot of turnovers and bad decisions.
Defensively, Byfuglien is still solid in his own end. Surprise?
I thought Postma has his best game as a pro. He was making some good plays.
Enstrom picked up a quiet 3 assists.
Pavelec was strong in net again.
Decision on Scheifele has to come soon. I'll have a piece on this in the AM. Should he stay or should he go?
These new lines seemed to work pretty good. Expect Noel to stick with them for their next outing.
The power play was MUCH better.
Jets picked up 3 of possible 4 points on back-to-back road games. They're not road warriors yet, but they look good this year away from home.
Next up; vs Pittsburgh, Friday 1/25
