CAPITALS VS. JETS PLAYERS TO WATCH

Capitals: Alex Ovechkin (35 games, 20 goals, 18 assists): The Great 8 now sits just one goal behind the legendary Gordie Howe (801) for second all-time behind Wayne Gretzky. Can Ovechkin crawl a bit closer to Mr. Hockey on Friday?

Jets: Josh Morrisey (26 games, 6 goals, 33 assists): It's a bit odd when a defenseman leads the team in points, but that's the case with Morrisey and the Jets. His 39 on the season pace the squad.
