#CapsSabres Postgame Notebook: Getting Right

Caps get back in win column in Buffalo finishing the season long road trip with a 2-1-1 record

by Mike Vogel @VogsCaps / WashingtonCaps.com

Washington played a strong first 40 minutes against the Sabres in Buffalo on Monday afternoon, forging a 2-0 lead to take into the third period. There were some white-knuckle moments in the third as the Caps likely sat back a bit more than they intended, but Washington ultimately skated off with a 3-2 win over the Sabres. 

Coming in the wake of an ugly 7-1 thumping at the hands of the Blackhawks in Chicago on Saturday night, the Caps' win over the Sabres was a good response and a strong bounce back performance.

Statement from the Washington Capitals on Incident in Chicago

by Washington Capitals @Capitals / WashingtonCaps.com

The Washington Capitals are extremely disappointed by the intolerant behavior extended toward Devante Smith-Pelly by a select group of fans during Saturday night's game against the Chicago Blackhawks at United Center. The Capitals organization strives to be inclusive and has zero tolerance concerning any form of racism. Such behavior is unacceptable and has no place in hockey or society. As such, it is crucial to confront such appalling conduct, and the Capitals extend their appreciation to the Blackhawks organization and United Center security for swiftly removing the fans from the game.

The Capitals' Jekyll and Hyde persona was on display again on Saturday night in Chicago. Two nights after authoring a convincing 5-2 road win over the Minnesota Wild - which had been the league's hottest team on home ice for the previous month and a half - the Caps came into Chicago to face a last-place Blackhawks team saddled with an eight-game losing streak (0-7-1) and a seven-game slide (0-6-1) on home ice.
