How to watch Capitals vs. Sabres originally appeared on NBC Sports Washington

After going on a 7-0-1 tear to start the month of March, the Washington Capitals‘ red-hot streak has cooled off. The Caps have lost two straight contests, both at home, most recently dropping a 5-2 game to the St. Louis Blues.

A trade deadline spree saw Washington re-acquire a familiar face in Marcus Johansson from the Seattle Kraken in exchange for Daniel Sprong and draft picks. Johan Larsson, formerly of the Arizona Coyotes, was also acquired as a depth piece to stabilize the Caps’ forward lines.

Washington is looking to get back into the win column and make up some more ground in the Metropolitan division. They’ve been trending water at a wild card spot for a few months now, so the Capitals will hope their fresh faces will help them with a late-season push. They take on the Buffalo Sabres on the road on Friday night.

Here’s everything you need to know before puck drop.

CAPITALS VS. SABRES WHAT TO WATCH

From NBC Sports Washington’s J.J. Regan:

“In Monday’s trade deadline, the Caps added forwards Marcus Johansson and Johan Larsson. Johansson was able to play Tuesday, but Larsson is still recovering from a sports hernia and is not yet ready to play. Nic Dowd and T.J. Oshie, meanwhile, are also injured. This put the Caps in a bind on Tuesday as they had only 11 forwards available and zero cap space. So the Caps did the only thing they could, they dressed 11 forwards and seven defensemen.” Read more.

From NBC Sports Washington’s Andrew Gillis:

“I think overall, in all three zones, we weren’t good enough,” Nicklas Backstrom said. “It starts from the back end and we weren’t good enough there and then a lot of turnovers and a lot of odd-man rushes. So I think that’s an area that we’ve got to clean up too if we want to be a great team.” Read more.

CAPITALS VS. SABRES PLAYERS TO WATCH

Capitals: Marcus Johansson, LW (51 games, 6 goals, 17 assists with Seattle): Johansson returns to Washington after a fruitful seven-year tenure here which ended in 2017. His stats took a bit of a dip since his departure from D.C., but perhaps he can get back to his old point-scoring ways now that he dons the red sweater yet again.

Sabres: Tage Thompson, RW (59 games, 25 goals, 21 assists): Thompson is Buffalo’s leading scorer this season, bolstering their forward lines on the right side. He’s put up four points in his last five games and will need to be a focal point of Washington’s defense on Friday night.
