If you believe Capitals coach Dale Hunter, the return of star center Nicklas Backstrom to the Capitals' lineup will need to wait at least a few more days.
The Capitals and Sabres both entered Tuesday nights game tied at 84 points, each with six games left and their playoff hopes in the balance.
With five games remaining in their regular season, there are 10 points still on the table for the Capitals.
Sorry, but I didnt see this one turning out to be lopsided in either teams direction.
If Tuesday nights game against the Buffalo Sabres was a measuring stick on the Capitals season of failed expectations, they have a lot of work to do if they hope to reach the Stanley Cup playoffs f
