Jets get quick rematch with Capitals

The resurgent Washington Capitals will aim for a third consecutive win when they visit the Winnipeg Jets on Thursday night.

The Capitals, after enduring a 1-5-1 stretch, have won two in row for the first time since a four-game winning streak in January. They will be looking to increase their lead in the Metropolitan Division.

Winnipeg, meanwhile, is tied for the second wild-card spot in the Western Conference despite being winless (0-2-1) in its past three games.
