The Washington Capitals (17-14-2, 36 points) visit the Buffalo Sabres (16-15-3, 35 points) on Monday night with the puck slated to drop at 7:00 p.m. Eastern. Tune in to CSN+, but not CSN, to catch the game; CSN is carrying the Washington Wizards' NBA season opener against the New Jersey Nets instead.
Buffalo is just 8-9-3 on its home ice and has lost three straight games by an average score of 5-2, so Washington certainly has an opportunity to improve its unimpressive 6-9-1 road record.
Here is everything you need to know about the Capitals vs. Sabres game:
Game Date/Time: Monday, Dec. 26, 7:00 p.m. ET
Location: First Niagara Center, Buffalo, NY
Radio: Capitals: Capitals Radio Network; Sabres: WGR 550 AM
