Washington Capitals vs Buffalo Sabres

Amidst the frenetic race for playoff contention in the Eastern Conference, the Washington Capitals have surged into the final wild card spot with a commendable 37-30-11 record, buoyed by a recent triumph. Despite their ascent in the standings, the Capitals have encountered struggles on the offensive front, mustering a modest 2.64 goals per game. While their defensive efforts have not been without merit, conceding an average of 3.14 goals per game has proven to be a hindrance to their overall performance.

In stark contrast, the Buffalo Sabres find themselves mired in disappointment, with a 37-37-5 record that has seen them tumble to the bottom of the conference standings. Their dreams of postseason glory have been dashed, extinguished by a string of defeats. Offensively, the Sabres have faltered, averaging a lackluster 2.96 goals per game. However, their defensive resilience has emerged as a silver lining amidst the gloom, allowing a commendable 2.99 goals per game.
