NEWS

Covers Preview - The Buffalo Sabres were supposed to head to Washington with a home game against the New York Rangers under their belt. Several feet of snow in the Western New York area curtailed those plans, however, giving the Sabres a little extra rest going into Saturday's date with the host Washington Capitals. Buffalo hasn't played since defeating the San Jose Sharks 4-1 on Tuesday night, while the Capitals are coming off a hard-fought 3-2 triumph over the Colorado Avalanche on Thursday.
