BELLEVILLE, Ontario (AP) - Mike Green scored in the fourth round of a shootout and former Belleville Bulls goalie Philipp Grubauer stopped all four Winnipeg attempts in the Washington Capitals' 4-3 victory over the Jets on Saturday night in the exhibition opener for both teams.
Capitals star Alex Ovechkin briefly left the game in first period after taking a high stick to the face from Jets defenseman Ben Chiarot.
Jack Hillen, Stanislav Galiev and Troy Brouwer scored in regulation for Washington. Grubauer made 25 saves after taking over for Braden Holtby midway through the second period.
Evander Kane scored twice for Winnipeg, and Scott Kosmachuk added a goal. Edward Pasquale, also a former Belleville goalie, made 36 saves for the Jets.
