Sabres could pose road block for Capitals

WASHINGTON -- Returning home from a loss in Florida, the Washington Capitals will be looking to bounce back against the lowly Buffalo Sabres.

That may be harder than it sounds.

While still mired in last place in the Atlantic Division, the Sabres (18-32-11) have become road warriors of late as Marco Scandella's goal with 0.2 of a second remaining in overtime Thursday lifted Buffalo to a 3-2 victory in Detroit.
