Deal-making Capitals end trip in Buffalo

The Washington Capitals finish a six-game road trip in Buffalo on Saturday afternoon, hoping to continue their strong play from the past two games.

Washington beat Toronto 3-2 on Thursday night, a win that came after a 3-2 decision over Los Angeles on Monday. Earlier in the trip, the Capitals handed San Jose a 5-1 loss, so they have been playing better after struggling for about a month.

Against a strong Toronto team, the Caps got 40 saves from goalie Braden Holtby, a short-handed score from Tom Wilson and a power-play goal from Alex Ovechkin. That was the 650th goal of his career.
