On paper, even on a back-to-back, the Buffalo Sabres seem like a cakewalk for the Washington Capitals.
The Sabres don’t look like they’re just going to roll over for the Capitals on Monday night, however. As you can see, things got heated between Nicklas Backstrom, Alex Ovechkin and the Sabres early in the game.
Ovechkin ended up getting four minutes of penalty time versus just two for Mike Weber. Buffalo cashed in on the power play chance that ensued.
As of this writing, Buffalo leads the game 2-1. You can watch on NBCSN or via NBC Sports Live Extra.
