After losing two straight games by a combined score of 8-4 this week, your Washington Capitals are back in action tonight against the Buffalo Sabres in the first half of a weekend back-to-back series.
The Capitals will once again go with seven defensemen and 11 forwards tonight as Nic Dowd is a late scratch. With Matt Irwin getting only 29 seconds of game time last game, we must wonder which defenseman will Peter Laviolette infinity bench tonight? Ilya Samsonov will get the start.
Tonight’s game is on NBC Sports Washington. Here are today’s Capitals Daily Deals on the NHL Shop.
