Capitals Look to Stay Hot Against Buffalo

The Washington Capitals will take on the Buffalo Sabres Sunday night in First Niagara Center. It will be the first time the teams face each other in the 2013-2014 season. Buffalo’s 10-24-4 record is a little misleading as of late, the team is 4-4 in the last 8 game, taking a point in 4 of the last 5.

The Capitals come off a Friday victory over rival New York Rangers, going 1-2 in the 3 game home stand.

“It felt great. We’ve kind of toyed with between winning games in regular time or else we’ve gone to a lot of overtime and a lot of shootouts, which, we are getting our points but it’s a lot better when we finish off in regulation,” defenseman Mike Green said.

It looks like Brookes Laich will miss another game due to his groin injury. Hillen and Latta are still on the IR. Cody Hodgson missed Buffalo’s last game on Friday night with a broken finger.
