The Capitals now are three points back of eighth place in the Eastern Conference.
With two straight wins over Winnipeg, the Caps are also five out of the division lead. "We're getting in a groove, you can feel it in the dressing room," said goaltender Braden Holtby. "The guys are confident and guys are ready to make a push here. It's a good feeling and that's what we've been waiting for all year."
