Jets Vs. Capitals: First Period Between Washington, Winnipeg Ends Scoreless

The first period between the Washington Capitals and Winnipeg Jets Thursday had the feeling of a boxing match. There was a lengthy feeling out process, but no major blows landed as Washington and Winnipeg are scoreless after 20 minutes.

For once, the Caps had the upper hand in shot differential as they fired 12 shots to the Jets' four, but Ondrej Pavelec stopped them all as he faced a barrage near the end of the period. Tomas Vokoun has not been challenged thus far, but has stopped four shots.
