The Winnipeg Jets got their offense on track with a 4-2 win over the Capitals on Tuesday, keeping Washington winless to start the new NHL season.
The Jets (1-1-1), who had scored just twice in two opening defeats, fell behind 1-0 to Washington before Evander Kane and Andrew Ladd netted power-play goals to give the visitors a 2-1 lead in the first period.
Blake Wheeler and Jim Slater padded the Jets' lead to 4-1 in the second before Troy Brouwer scored a consolation goal late in the third. Ondrej Pavelec made 32 saves for the win.
Alex Ovechkin assisted on a first-period goal to Matt Hendricks for Washington (0-2-0), who suffered a 6-3 loss to Tampa Bay in their season-opener on Saturday.
