When the Capitals visit the Buffalo Sabres tonight they'll be facing a team looking to rebound from its worst loss of the season, an 8-1 shellacking in Columbus on Friday.
Even without Mike Green (groin) the Capitals blue line has combined for 12 goals and 36 assists for 48 points. In 21 games.
Capitals coach Bruce Boudreau said his players better be ready to play at a high tempo tonight when they face off against the 4-2-2 Edmonton Oilers at 9:30 p.m.
Say what you want about facing five backup goaltenders in their first seven games.
