WINNIPEG, Manitoba, March 2 (UPI) -- Braden Holtby earned his third shutout of the season Saturday, notching 35 saves in the Washington Capitals' 3-0 win over Winnipeg.

Mike Ribeiro registered a goal and an assist while Matt Hendricks and Troy Brouwer also found the net for Washington.

Ondrej Pavelec stopped 18-of-21 shots for the Jets, who lost for the first time in four contests.
