After losing 6-3 to the New York Rangers Friday, the Washington Capitals hoped that a quick turnaround Saturday would turn things around. Yet, things continued to spin out of control after a 5-1 loss to the Buffalo Sabres.
Chimera's goal actually cut the Sabres' lead to 2-1, but less than 30 seconds later, Kassian's first NHL goal restored Buffalo's lead to 3-1. Two goals in the third sealed the victory for the Sabres.
A two-game win streak earlier this week gave way to two losses in as many days for the Caps. Washington, after starting the season 7-0-0, have lost 10 of 15.
