The Washington Capitals have won seven of their last eight games. Their lone loss? Last Saturday, when they were beat in overtime by the Buffalo Sabres. Luckily, the NHL schedule has offered the Capitals a chance to get instant revenge.
Tonight, the Sabres invade the Verizon Center for a 7 p.m. game, in a matchup between two teams that are playing very well. The Sabres have gone to overtime in each of their last five games, winning four. They last played on Monday, defeating the Vancouver Canucks 4-3.
Ryan Miller will once again be in net for the Sabres. Miller is playing in his third game since missing six games with an injury. His presence was big on Saturday, as he held the Capitals to just two goals on the game.
Michal Neuvirth will get the start for the Capitals this time. Braden Holtby was the Caps' netminder last Saturday.
