Capitals Vs. Sabres: Caps And Sabres Tied Up 1-1 After Two Periods

The Washington Capitals and Buffalo Sabres go into the second intermission tied at one goal a piece. Although the period started well for Washington, it was Buffalo who quickly seized back momentum to tie it up.

After a disappointing first period that saw the Captials miss a big 5 on 3 advantage, they were able to come back in the second and scored on a relatively favorable bounce. Center Mathieu Parreault scored on a wrist shot thanks to a lucky bounce off the boards, giving the Caps an 1-0 advantage early in the second period.

And while the Caps power play continued to struggle, it was the Sabres who scored just 30 seconds into their first man advantage. After Brooks Laich was called for goaltender interference, Jason Pominville scored on a rising slap shot that snuck by Caps netminder Semyon Varlamov , tying the contest up 1-1. 

The Caps are outshooting the Sabres 34-18 through two periods, and have taken more shots in this game so far than they have in each of their last six games. They will need to continue to keep up that pace if they want to get another one past stud goaltender Ryan Miller.
