Oh thank goodness, there’s Caps hockey. Let’s all take a break from that conversation with our extended families about how the real world has become Purge: Anarchy and instead talk about how the Caps whipped the Sabres on Black Friday.
Daniel Winnik and his horseshoe mustache kicked us off by sticking with a scoring play started by Lars Eller. Marcus Johansson doubled Washington’s lead by rescuing Justin Williams’ interrupted pass and burying the puck behind Anders Nilsson.
Sam Reinhart ended Grubauer’s shutout bid in the third after some sustained pressure by Kyle Okposo. Hardworking Brett Connolly occupied the slot and slammed a goal with 4 minutes to go.
Caps beat Sabres 3-1!
