The Washington Capitals held morning skate at the MTS Centre in Winnipeg on Tuesday morning. The Capitals face the Jets tonight in the first of a home-and-home set. Puck-drop for tonight’s game is 8PM. The same two teams will again do battle on Thursday night at Verizon Center. 

MORNING SKATE
The Capitals practiced with the same lines used in the previous two games, and will unlikely make any changes for tonight’s game. This means Daniel Winnik and Taylor Chorney will be the healthy scratches again tonight.

Connor Hellebuyck will get the start in goal for the Jets. Braden Holtby will get the start between the pipes for the Capitals. Braden met with the media following practice this morning:

Head coach Barry Trotz also met with the media following this morning’s practice:

The Capitals return to Virginia late this evening, and will have off on Wednesday. The Caps return to practice at Kettler on Thursday at 10:30 AM. For a complete game preview for tonight’s Caps-Jets game, click here:

  • Coach Trotz stated last week he’d like to get Taylor Chorney in a game on the western Canada road-tip, but with tonight’s scratch, Chorney will once again sit. Chorney has not played in a game this season.
