The Caps and Sabres met for the 97th time in the last two weeks. With the way things went tonight, the Caps probably wish they could play Buffalo a few more times.
A whole lot of nothing happened and then Playmaker Passmaster Jay Beagle made a beautiful feed to TJ Oshie to get the Caps on the board first. The Caps went up by two on Jakub Vrana’s first NHL goal off of a beautiful zone entry and pass from Evgeny Kuznetsov. Kyle Okposo potted a power play goal to pull the Sabres within one because the Caps COULD NOT STOP TAKING PENALTIES. But then, and no this isn’t one of those fake news stories, John Carlson scored a goal! Marcus Johansson added the empty net goal.
Caps win, 4-1!
