GAME PREVIEW

Group A traveled to Belleville, Ontario to take part in their second Kraft Hockeyville NHL exhibition game at Yardmen Arena. The game is sold out which holds 3300 fans.

Mark Scheifele
is set to start tonight's game on the top line with Evander Kane and Devin Setoguchi.

"He has some good skill," Kane said of Scheifele. "He moves the puck well, sees the ice well. He tries to make plays. I think he's trying to transition his junior game into NHL. I think that obviously is a process, and I think he's done a really good job so far."

Jacob Trouba and Josh Morrissey are also part of the group that is in Belleville for the game tonight as well as Nic Petan and J.C Lipon.

Kane, Slater and Bogosian are wearing A's tonight and Chris Thorburn was a late scratch and will not be playing. Eddie Pasquale gets the start in net.

The first period came to a close in a scoreless tie. The Caps lead the Jets 9-8 in shots on goal.

SECOND PERIOD

4:33: Evander Kane puts the Jets on the board early in the second period. Devin Setoguchi dropped the puck off for Kane who was racing across the bliueline late. He took half a second before snapping a hard shot on net that flew past a screened Braden Holtby right under the cross bar. 1-0 Jets.

       Kane's screen shot finds top blocker corner. 1-0 vs Caps. Setoguchi and Melchiori assist.       @RickRalphTSN


6:08: Scott Kosmachuk made it 2-0 Jets as he dug the puck out of the corner and finished a textbook wrap-around play. Nic Petan picks up the assist on the play.

      Phiipp Grubauer replaces Braden Holtby in the Caps net. Eddie Pasquale, who has been fantastic, will stay in the goal       @WFPEdTait


14:07: Jack Hillen gets the Capitals on the board as he snaps a quick shot from the top of the circle through traffic.

14:32: 25 seconds later, Stanlislav Galiev makes it 2-0 on a redirection infront of Pasquale.

Through two periods, things are all tied at 2-2. Third period coming up!

THIRD PERIOD

6:14: The Scheifele, Setoguchi, Kane line was back at it again pressing hard in front of the Caps net. Setoguchi was robbed twice on scoring chances but Kane finally finished things off after Scheifele found him open in the slot.

8:37: Troy Brower evens the score on the power play with Mark Scheifele in the box for tripping. He connected with a perfect pass in the slot and made no mistake putting it past Pasquale.

      Sweet passing play by Nicklas Backstrom to Marcus Johansson to Troy Brouwer for one-timer and PP goal from slot as tie #NHLJets 3-3       @WeibeSunSports
The score after 60 minutes remained 3-3...this one would need overtime....
