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.
