Video: Capitals, Sabres go in opposite directions

The Buffalo Sabres and Washington Capitals essentially went into last night’s big game in the same place and Buffalo’s lead is small yet substantial, but more than anything else, it feels like so much more.

Keith Jones and Mike Milbury went on NBC Sports Talk to discuss the rising Sabres, the falling Capitals and some surprising struggles for the Pittsburgh Penguins in the video below.

    I stopped wanting the Flyers to take the one spot. I think I’d rather tangle with the Pens than face Buffalo right now.

    You are correct. Pens are perfect picks to go out in one round. Rack up a ton of points in regular season and then hit the links in mid-April.
