Washington Capitals vs Buffalo Sabres Preview
The Capitals kept rolling with Thursday’s 4-1 home win over the Vancouver Canucks that followed a 7-1 crushing of the visiting Ottawa Senators on Sunday. Alex Ovechkin had a three-game goal streak snapped by the Vancouver Canucks, but Evgeny Kuznetsov recorded two goals and an assist and Braden Holtby made 29 saves for his league-high 28th victory.
The Buffalo Sabres was dealt a fifth straight defeat in regulation at First Niagara Center with Friday’s 4-1 loss to the Boston Bruins. Buffalo has been outscored 17-6 while producing just two even-strength goals over that stretch, which began with a 2-0 setback to the Capitals on Dec. 28.
NHL Starting Goalies
- Washington Capitals -> Braden Holtby
Braden Holtby turned aside 29 of the 30 shots he faced as the Capitals came up with another win on Thursday night. Washington beat Vancouver 4-1, as Holtby won his fourth straight game and is now unbeaten in regulation in his past 22 contests. The 26-year-old improves to 28-4-2 with a .933 save percentage and 1.90 goals against average.
- Buffalo Sabres -> Chad Johnson
Look for Chad Johnson to get the start against Washington Saturday night. Robin Lehner returned to action Friday night against the Bruins, his first game since October 8th, so it is unlikely he will play in back-to-back contests. Johnson, who will now resume the role of Buffalo’s backup, has a 10-2-2 record with a 2.46 goals against average and a .916 save percentage
