Third period thread.

NHL: Buffalo Sabres at Washington Capitals Brad Mills-USA TODAY Sports

Sometimes the best defense is a good offense.

That’s what the Capitals figured, any way, as they found themselves down a man on the penalty kill. But instead of shrinking, Nic Dowd lifted a gorgeous backhand chip pass across center ice and to a streaking Chandler Stephenson, who beat goalie Carter Hutton to make it 1-0.

It’s 1-0 Caps after two.

Third period ahead...
