BUFFALO -- Washington Capitals goaltender Braden Holtby stopped everything the Buffalo Sabres threw at him, while Alexander Ovechkin and Jay Beagle scored a pair of second-period goals to defeat the Buffalo Sabres 2-0 at First Niagara Center.

Ovechkin scored the first goal 19 seconds into the second period, assisted by Nicklas Backstrom and T.J. Oshie. Beagle's goal came at 12:55 of the second, assisted by Tom Wilson.

The Sabres were hoping to get back to the .500 mark for the first time since early November, but the red-hot Capitals, 27-6-2, had other plans. The Capitals have won 15 of their last 17 matches. The Sabres, now 15-17-4, has lost two of their last three games.

The Sabres will have a chance at redemption on Wednesday when they play Washington again in Washington D.C. The Sabres have never lost both games of a home-and-home series against the Capitals.

NOTES: 

  • With the loss, the Sabres fell to 6-11-1 when outshooting their opponents this season.
  • The Sabres were shut out for the third time this season. It was the first time the team has been shut out by the Capitals since a 2-0 loss on Nov. 25, 2009 (Semyon Varlamov).
  • Tonight's game was the first Sabres-Capitals game at First Niagara Center to be settled in regulation since Dec. 26, 2011 (4-2 Sabres win).
  • The Capitals have now won three straight road games against the Sabres for the first time in franchise history.
