Washington earned a gut-check 4-3 win if there ever was one Saturday night in a 4-3 shootout victory over the Sabres.
A high scoring first period turned into a defensive affair as Washington needed overtime and a shootout to get past the Rangers.
Caps on Friday picked up right where they left off on Thursday with another strong game against the Jets. In the two game series, the Caps out-scored their division rival 10-1.
For the second time in the last three weeks Washington blanked Winnipeg in their own barn, taking the first game in this rare “double-header”, 4-0.
