Sabres will try to cool off Capitals' red-hot Ovechkin

WASHINGTON -- The Buffalo Sabres will try and do what the Detroit Red Wings and Carolina Hurricanes did not do this week when they play the Washington Capitals Saturday night at Capital One Arena.

Stop Alex Ovechkin.

Ovechkin tied his career-long point streak at 13 games Friday night with his second straight hat trick as Washington rallied for a 6-5 shootout win at the Carolina Hurricanes.
