The Washington Capitals took on the Buffalo Sabres for the second time this season. It was a hockey night in Buffalo as the Caps looked to bounce back from a loss to the Pens 24 hours earlier.
Lars Eller struck first as he potted a saucy feed from Conor Sheary behind Ukko-Pekka Luukkonen. Vinnie Hinostroza capitalized on a bad defensive change from the Caps and tied things up with a breakaway tally.
Will Butcher gave the Sabres their first lead of the game as he jumped up into the play. Martin Fehervary tied the game once more as Alex Ovechkin fed him a one-timer. We got nada in overtime so here are your shootout bullets.
Capitals beat Sabres 3-2!

The Caps have a handful of days off before another game. They’ll be on the road in Chicago when things get back going on December 15…hopefully healthier.
