Jets v Caps: Episode 2 - Third Laine

New, comments

The Jets and Caps face off in what is sure to be a wild ride.

NHL: Washington Capitals at Winnipeg Jets Bruce Fedyck-USA TODAY Sports

On Monday the Jets and Capitals played in Winnipeg with the Jets losing 3-2, this can only mean in tonight’s game in Washington, the Jets pull off a win of their own. On Tuesday, Brayden Holtby stood on his head to stop the Jets from pulling of a victory, despite outplaying the Capitals. (That’s so Jets).

The injury bug has taken a massive toll on the Jets this season, thankfully though, the Jets have called up Andrew Copp to replace the injured Shawn Matthias. He’ll be on the fourth line tonight with Alexander Burmistrov and press box warrior Marko Dano.

Who Do We Hate?:

Alexander Ovechkin is the obvious choice here, but let’s not make Laine sad by boo-ing his childhood hero. Tonight, let’s hate Brayden Holtby for making Tuesday’s game end up the way it did.

Let us know down in the comments your thoughts on the game!
