WASHINGTON CAPITALS WIN AGAINST BUFFALO SABRES
Mon, 21 Feb 2011 03:53 PM EST

The Buffalo Sabres seem unable to return to their winning form. They thought they could pull it off against the Capitals but they still look like they don’t have what it takes. It is their third consecutive loss and things could go very bad for their season. Odds.

The first period started with the Capitals creating many more chances than their opponents. However, Ryan Miller was a giant and proved to be almost unbeatable. Both teams had good opportunities but the first period belonged entirely to the goalies. None of them was beaten and the score remained 0-0.

The Capitals looked like the stronger side and they were relentless in their effort to break the deadlock. That finally happened in the sixth minute of the second period when Mathieu Perreault finally managed to put the puck past the goalie. It was 1-0 and even though the Capitals looked better, the Sabres were still in it. That fact was proven right before the 9 minute mark when Jason Pominville defeated the odds and managed to score. It was 1-1 and all the Capitals’ hard work was for nothing. They continued to harass their opponents but Ryan Miller was up to any challenge they could throw his way. Scores.

“I just took a golf swing at it, closed my eyes and it went in,” Perreault stated. “Sometimes you play a great game and the bounces aren’t going to come your way, and then today they came my way, so I’ll take advantage of it.”

“We had like five unbelievable chances and we just knew Ryan Miller was in one of those zones,” coach Bruce Boudreau stated. “We had to persevere if we were going to succeed. … We got a little bit lucky. But if you put enough shots at the net, good things usually happen.”

In recent times, the Capitals were struck by misfortune in the third period and couldn’t really get the job done. However, this was not the case in this game. The Buffalo Sabres managed to even things out but the Capitals were still creating many serious chances. It looked like it would take a bit of luck for them to grab the win this time. And indeed, Lady Luck was a Washington fan as Perreault’s shot got deflected right to Marcus Johansson. The man didn’t need to be told what to do with it and adeptly put it past Ryan Miller. The final score was 2-1 and the Sabres should thank Miller for keeping the score so low. Las Vegas odds.
