Mon, Dec 26th:  Washington Capitals @ Buffalo Sabres (7:00pm) CSN+

On Tuesday night, while the Wizards will play their first game at Verizon Center, the Washington Capitals will be in Buffalo to face-off against the Sabres as it will be back to Applebees for the struggling Caps.  (Caps get the CSN + Treatment).  The Sabres are only 1 point behind the stagnant Capitals in the standings , but the Sabs have lost 3 in a row giving up a whopping 15 goals in those 3 contests combined.

The Caps are coming off of a 4-3 shootout loss to the Devils, where they went into the 3rd period down 3 goals and fought back in the game to get the OT pity point.  Hopefully the Caps can come in and play with the same desire and fight that they had in that final period on Friday night.

The Sabres game earlier in the year was the end of Bruce Boudreau.  The first time these two teams met in late November, the Sabres manhandled the Caps winning 5-1 in Buffalo.  The Caps were terrible in that contest giving up 2 shorthanded goals, but if Friday's game against the Devils is any indication, a feat like that could be repeated by the Sabs.  Enter Dale Hunter...

Why are the Predators a Sabretooth Tiger?  I keep clicking on their logo when I mean to click on the Sabres.  My mind can't deal with that...

Thomas Vaneck, the Sabre's leading goal scorer (17)  & Brad Boyes are questionable for the Sabres...Neuvy getting the start again, haven't seen Voko in a while...
