Hellebuyck makes 34 saves to lead Jets past Capitals 3-0

WINNIPEG, Manitoba (AP) Connor Hellebuyck stopped 34 shots for his fifth shutout of the season, leading the Winnipeg Jets to a 3-0 victory over the Washington Capitals on Thursday night.

Dmitry Kulikov, Kyle Connor and Mark Scheifele scored for Winnipeg, which killed off three penalties and is 16 of 16 on the penalty kill in its last 10 games.

A big reason has been Hellebuyck, who tied Columbus' Elvis Merzlikins and Vegas' Marc-Andre Fleury for the NHL lead in shutouts.
