Caps aim for season-opening sweep of Sabres

The Washington Capitals did not have much trouble scoring goals Thursday in their season-opening victory at Buffalo. They won't have long to wait for another chance to produce against the Sabres.

The Capitals, who prevailed 6-4 on Thursday, will play in Buffalo again on Friday. Washington and Buffalo will face each other four times over their first six contests in the abbreviated 56-game season.

Washington provided a reminder of why it ranked second in the NHL last season with an average of 3.42 goals per game. T.J. Oshie had a goal and two assists, John Carlson and Nicklas Backstrom each recorded one goal and one assist, and Alex Ovechkin added two assists.
