Sixty minutes of play couldn’t decide it, so the Washington Capitals and Winnipeg Jets went to overtime with the game tied 1-1. That had been typically good news for the Capitals. Heading into Saturday, the team was 2-1 in three-on-three overtime. The Capitals sport some talented stick-handlers — Alex Ovechkin, Nicklas Backstrom, TJ Oshie, and Evgeny Kuznetsov — who take advantage of open ice.
Kuznetsov had scored both of the Caps’ OTGWGs this season, dominating the overtime periods with his stickwork and skating ability.
