WINNIPEG, Manitoba (AP) - Braden Holtby made 19 saves for his fourth shutout of the season and Alexander Ovechkin had a goal and two assists in the Washington Capitals' 4-0 victory over the Winnipeg Jets on Thursday night.

Nicklas Backstrom added a goal and an assist for Washington, while Troy Brouwer and Marcus Johansson also scored.

Holtby also blanked Winnipeg 3-0 on March 2, giving him the only shutouts against Winnipeg this season.

Ondrej Pavelec faced 25 shots for the Jets, who had their three-game home winning streak snapped.

Winnipeg stayed in the Southeast Division's top spot and third place in the Eastern Conference, two points ahead of the Carolina Hurricanes, who lost 4-1 to New Jersey on Thursday night.

The Jets and Washington play again Friday night in Winnipeg.
