Jets vs. Capitals Prediction

I’m on the Capitals here. I get why you’d want to look at the Jets, as Winnipeg’s quietly been one of the most consistent teams in the NHL all year long, but the Capitals are playing the better hockey over the last couple of weeks and are the more desperate team to get back into the playoff hunt. It’s also a tough back-to-back spot for the Jets, who haven’t won in 10 straight trips to Washington. Give me the Caps here.
