After chipping away all game, the Capitals came away with two points in a 2-1 win in Buffalo against Ryan Miller and the Sabres. After the game, Marcus Johansson, who scored the go ahead goal, told the media the Capitals deserved to win after a full sixty minutes of play. “I think we worked hard to get it,” Johansson said. We worked hard all game and we really fought for it. “When we play like that we deserve two points.”

The Capitals look to build on this game with a difficult matchup in Pittsburgh against the Penguins on Monday.
