In the National Hockey League, the Washington Capitals were playing at home, with a chance to grab sole possession of second place in the Metropolitan Division and it seemed like they had the right opponents. Because Buffalo are not in a good way right now. The Sabres came in having lost eleven straight road games.

The second-longest away skid in their history, Washington on the attack in the first period and Jason Chi-mera’s shot goes in off the defender’s stick.

The Capitals take an early 1-0 lead and Buffalo goalie Ryan Miller perhaps thinking "Here We Go Again." But the Sabres get a power play chance late in the period, Christian Ehr-hoff rejected but Tyler Ennis knocks in the rebound and that effort ties the score at one-all.

Washington trying to go ahead in the third period but Miller makes a fantastic save to keep things knotted up. Another look from overhead Mikhail Gra-bov-ski lunges and Miller just tips the puck away.

Cody Hodgson slips the puck past Philip Grubauer and Buffalo come away with the 2-1 victory, in the US Capital.
