    Japers' Rink: Capitals vs. Blue Jackets Recap: Washington Blanks Columbus 4-0

    NHL

    This was a highly anticipated divisional battle, and the Capitals came in hot. After taking a commanding 3-0 lead in the first period and chasing Sergei Borbrovsky out of the Blue Jackets' crease, Braden Holtby and the Capitals held on to beat Columbus 4-0. Tonight marks the 11th-straight game that Washington has scored three or more goals.

    Here's Saturday night's Plus/Minus:

    Plus: The Capitals came to play tonight, but no one came to play more than Braden Holtby. He made all 28 saves tonight to notch his 34th career shutout, and he is now one shy of tying the franchise record set by Olaf Kolzig.

    Fansided: Columbus Blue Jackets Host Washington Capitals at Nationwide

    The Columbus Blue Jackets will battle the Washington Capitals tonight in a match-up that'll decide who leads the Metropolitan division. The Capitals are hot right now, with a record of 8-2-0, meaning that the Blue Jackets will be in for a fight.

    The Blue Jackets are in a rough situation, they should have a much better record than they do however they've blown two of the last three games which they should've won. The same almost happened in Philadelphia, but thanks to Seth Jones the Jackets were able to walk out with a win.

    Consensus betting prediction from the Covers.com community:
    Washington Capitals
    (56% consensus). The Washington Capitals make their first visit to Columbus since wrapping up a first-round playoff series with a six-game victory over the Blue Jackets last season. Columbus won the first matchup of the season with a 2-1 victory at Washington a month ago but emotions still should be high at Nationwide Arena when the top two teams in the Metropolitan Division clash Saturday night... http://bit.ly/2B4fcqv

    vs.

    Tonight is Part 2 of the rematch of last year's playoff series. The Jackets drew first blood in a game a month ago in Washington. Can they guarantee at least a split of the season series? A win would also leap the Jackets over the Caps for first place in the Metro, where those two teams have separated themselves from the pack (5 points ahead of third place Pittsburgh).

    Late in Thursday's OT win over Philadelphia, Werenski saw himself stapled to the bench, and Seth Jones partnered with Ryan Murray again.
