About the Jets

Critical contest in their playoff pursuit and the first of two games in two nights, followed by Saturday in Nashville. The Jets have two two-games-in-two-nights scenarios remaining, the final being March 30-31 in Raleigh and Tampa... The Jets' 26 points earned on the road is the third-worst total in the NHL, ahead of only Edmonton (25) and Columbus (24)... Bryan Little's two goals against the Pens gives him 21 this year, his highest total since scoring 31 in '08-09... Dustin Byfuglien is tied for third in scoring among NHL defencemen (heading into Thursday) with 11 goals and 35 assists.


About the Capitals

Return home from a road trip that finished up in Philly on Thursday... Own one of the NHL's best home records at 23-10-3... Intriguing stat: Dennis Wideman leads all Caps in average ice time at 23:51... Troy Brouwer leads Washington with five game-winning goals... Alex Ovechkin has 32 goals this year, matching last year's total, but his point total will be a career low. He has 56 points this year, last season he had a career-low 85... Caps' star Nik Backstrom remains sidelined with a concussion, but has resumed skating.
