Riding a six-game winning streak, the Washington Capitals are on a roll and appear unstoppable. They're getting scoring from all four lines, including a lot more consistency from Andre Burakovsky, and Braden Holtby has been outstanding as the season enters its final stretch. However, they're in for a true challenge Sunday, as the Winnipeg Jets roll into town having won three of their last four matchups.
With a victory, the Capitals can maintain a hold on the Metro Division lead and also tie their longest-winning streak of the season with seven victories, a feat they haven't reached since November. And despite their offense handling things well, they'll have to stack up against Winnipeg's offensive arsenal that put up eight goals against the Hurricanes Friday.
Here's how to tune into Jets-Caps Sunday. The puck drops at 7 p.m. ET on NBC Sports Washington.

JETS AT CAPITALS PLAYERS TO WATCH
Alex Ovechkin, F, Capitals (46 G, 31 A, 77 P)
Nearly a year ago, Ovechkin scored two goals against Winnipeg to reach 600 career goals. The 33-year-old leads the league with 46 tallies this season and has 12 points in his last 10 games, including eight goals. He's also lethal against the Jets, having put up 47 goals and 91 points in 64 career matchups with Winnipeg.
Blake Wheeler, F, Jets (19 G, 64 A, 83 P)
Winnipeg's captain has been dominant of late, serving as the main catalyst for the Jets heading into their final push before the playoffs. He's on an eight-game point streak, which includes a four-game goal streak, and has seven goals and 15 points over that span. Look for him to continue to roll against Washington as he approaches yet another 20-goal season and potentially a new career-high in points after putting up 91 last season.
