It’s pretty safe to say that the Capitals did not play well in Chicago against the Blackhawks on Saturday Night. Their next test was the Buffalo Sabres in wintery western New York. A battle between a beast of the east and well… the Buffalo Sabres. Nothing for ya through twenty minutes but some good goaltending from Philipp Grubauer and Chad Johnson. Alex Ovechkin opened the scoring as his chase for goal #600 continues. John Carlson squeaked one home to double the advantage. Kyle Okposo scored late to make the ending of this one interesting. Kuznetsov empty netter. Evander Kane garbage time goal. Caps beat Sabres 3-2!
