Caps come up short thanks to mistakes, inept offense

Via: Washington Times

'Peter Bondra scored Washington's only goal (on his only shot) and hit two pipes but the Sabres held a commanding 40-22 advantage in shots. Actually, what hurt the Caps was taking the second period off — they had two shots and one was a gift — as the Sabres, winners of one of their last nine games, were minus their leading scorer.'
