The Buffalo Sabres make their only trip of the season to our nations capital. No Evander Kane in the lineup for Buffalo, with the trade deadline under 48 hours away. Kane has likely played his last game as a Buffalo Sabre.

Justin Falk is the other healthy scratch for the game. Both Jordan Nolan and Nick Baptiste are in the lineup up front.

 

First Period:

19:10 - CAPITALS GOAL. Evgeny Kuznetsov wastes no time for the Capitals. He gets them out to an early 1-0 lead. Hard to imagine a worse start for the Sabres, putting themselves behind the 8-ball against a good team. 1-0 Capitals.

9:04 - The Sabres have had some good chacnes. Sam Reinhart had a quasi-breakaway, but was stopped. Evan Rodrigues drew a penalty and set up a nice chance by Kyle Okposo. Still trailing by 1 though.
