For the second time in less than a week the Washington Capitals and Buffalo Sabres tangoed in some ice hockey action. This time the dance was in DC and just like last time it took a little while for this game to ramp up, but we got the same result.
Evgeny Kuznetsov opened the scoring within the first minute on a semi-breakaway, but we got nothing else in the remaining 19 minutes. Andre Burakovsky added some magic of his own in the second to extend the Caps lead to two.
One of the seemingly 19 Reinharts in the league cut the league in half within the first 15 second of the third. Ovi from his office, you know the deal. Lars Eller empty netter. Ovi added another just for fun.
Caps beat Sabres 5-1!

A lot of people ask "when do the Senators have to notify Avs what year's pick they'll give them, 2018 or '19?" The answer is: Ottawa can wait right up until the pick before theirs in this year's draft before letting Avs know
