The Washington Capitals kept to their winning ways with a convincing yet sloppy victory over the Buffalo Sabres on Thursday night.
After Alex Ovechkin took a couple swings against Buffalo goalie Linus Ullmark, Nicklas Backstrom said “bro i got this” and did it himself. Tom Wilson extended the lead in the second period with a very welcome shorthanded goal. In the third, Conor Sheary cleaned up a rebound on a great rush play. But then Victor Olofsson ended the shutout with a power-play goal that clipped the top of Vancek’s net.

Two wins in a row? That’s officially a trend. There’s been some real respectable play lately, dating back to that last loss against Pittsburgh, if you ask me. But this weekend’s gauntlet will be a real test. Meet you here, then.
