“Finally! We are anteaters!”
The Buffalo tank job made a stop in DC, and boy was it fun. The Sabres scored the game’s first goal, and we were scared for a moment, but then tanks gonna tank.
No, really. There was a moment when the 2014-15 Capitals were losing to the 2014-15 Sabres. Johan Larsson actually beat Braden Holtby after the top line lost a defensive-zone faceoff and then got a little careless in their own zone. The Caps took over after that. Mike Green carried the puck all the way down below the goal line and set up Curtis Glencross for his second goal in a Caps uniform.
Jay Beagle ground out a goal in the second period, and Brooks Laich got the monkey off his back before the second intermission. Joel Ward made it 5-1 with a superhuman effort in the power-play paint, and Marcus Johansson got a Swedish wraparound on an uninterested Sabres defense late.
Caps beat Sabres 6-1.
I feel bad for bailamosing the Sabres, but I’m bailamosing the Sabres.
Because look at this:

Joe B suit of the night + Courage Caps
I wanted more for Ovi tonight in his return after missing one game to a lower body injury. This was a stat-padding game if there ever was one. Seeing what Tavares is doing on the Umbrella Corporation Out-of-town Scoreboard, they coulda used it. But instead of raining down hats, the Caps spread the goals around. I suppose I’m okay with that too.
Rangers up next. Have a good Saturday night, friends.
