Monday Roundup/Sabres 3, Caps 2

[Boxscore - Recap - Postgame Coverage]

The Caps entered the third period of Sunday's game with Buffalo down a goal (a minor miracle after being outshot 21-11 through two periods - thanks, Olie Kolzig) and after killing off an early penalty would have the benefit of the game's last three power plays (including two in the last seven minutes). But they didn't score on any of the three, and in fact allowed the eventual game winner to be scored on them shorthanded. The team was clearly tired from Saturday night's marathon followed by a return home and a mid-afternoon start, but there really is no excuse for dropping a game that was gift-wrapped for you so plainly late.

The Caps now find themselves in the midst of their longest losing streak of the season (four games) and are off until Thursday when they'll visit the Panthers in Miami. The WaPo's recap of last night's game can be found here, WTimes' here.
