The Washington Capitals have won four in a row and the Buffalo Sabres have lost ten in a row. Would both of those streaks come to an end or would both be extended?
Evgeny Kuznetsov threw an innocent wrister on net from the half-wall that found its way past Carter Hutton to open the scoring. TJ Oshie danced through multiple Sabres before Nicklas Backstrom promptly slammed home a rebound to double the lead. Richard Panik took a beautiful feed from Dmitry Orlov and fired it home for the Caps third.
Nick Jensen sprung Daniel Sprong who converted top shelf on a breakaway to continue the beatdown. Garnet Hathaway got a piece of a Justin Schultz point-drive to start the third period. Ovi ties Esposito to make it six.
First career NHL shutout for Vitek Vanecek.
Caps beat Sabres 6-0!
Let us dance.

The Caps are right back at it tomorrow night against the East Division-leading New York Islanders who apparently are never going to lose a hockey ever again.
