The Eastern Conference Playoff race continued to heat up last night with the Buffalo Sabres taking it to the Washington Capitals. The score, 5-1 in favor of the Sabres, saw them jump into 8th spot and go two points up on the Capitals. Sure, the stay may be temporary with the same amount of games remaining, but Buffalo fans need to be happy to have such an exciting finish coming down the stretch. Washington for that mater should also.
Sabres’ Ryan Miller picked up his 30th win while Drew Staford netted his 18th and 19th goals on the season. Alexander Semin had the lone goal for the Capitals.
