"ï"ï ABOUT THE CAPS

Alex Ovechkin's 30 goals lead the team, and the league, heading into tonight's game. The Great 8 has 51 points on the season.

Lost in Ovechkin's second-half charge is the matter of centre Mike Ribeiro's fine season. He has 47 points, only four fewer than Ovechkin.

The Jets own a victory in their only previous appearance this season in Washington, a 4-1 win on Jan. 22. Washington won all three in Winnipeg this season.

One reason the Caps lead the Southeast Division heading into tonight's game -- they are 14-3-0 in games versus division opponents this season.

The Caps' power play will be of concern to the Jets tonight. Washington is leading the NHL in power-play percentage at 26.1. That will be a tough unit to stop. On the penalty-killing side, the Caps are 28th, at a poor 77.8 per cent.
