Capitals’ stars rise to occasion in win over Sabres
Question of the Day
Buffalo’s pressure continued in the third until Backstrom and Ovechkin converted a two-on-one opportunity with Ovechkin bombing a one-timer past Miller to ultimately seal Washington’s second straight win.
“We made pretty plays by our simple plays,” Ovechkin said. “It’s nice when you make pretty plays and when you score the goals.”
The victory comes on the heels of 4-1 win over the New York Rangers and signifies that the Capitals might finally be starting to gain a little momentum — something that’s avoided them since Hunter’s hiring.
Now, they head to Columbus for Saturday night’s tilt on a high note.
“A couple wins going on the road is always a big confidence-builder,” said Brouwer. “And for us, we’re going into tomorrow night back-to-back. There’s areas of our game we want to clean up, and hopefully we’ll be able to do that tomorrow and have just a solid road game a lot like the two we played here at home.”
