NOTABLE:

Caps' D-man John Carlson played in his 272nd consecutive game Thursday, passing Calle Johansson for the most consecutive by a Washington rearguard in franchise history... Julien Brouillette and Patrick Wey, both called up from Hershey because of injury problems on the Capitals' blue-line, drew assists on Tom Wilson's third-period goal for the first points of their NHL careers.

 

QUOTABLE:

"I didn't even know that. I don't think it played a part in the game. They're beating us lately." -- Bryan Little on the Caps' six-game win streak against the Jets.

 

UP NEXT:

The Jets moved on to St. Louis immediately after the contest for the final contest of their pre-Olympic four-game road trip, Saturday against the St. Louis Blues (6 p.m., TSN Jets/TSN 1290).
