BUFFALO, N.Y. (WKBW) — In a battle between two of the top teams in the NHL, the Buffalo Sabres came up short. The Sabres fell to the Washington Capitals by a 6-1 score on Friday night, their first back-to-back losses of the season.

Henri Jokiharju scored his first NHL goal in the loss with assists from Evan Rodrigues and Rasmus Dahlin. Linus Ullmark made 28 saves, allowing the most goals he's had in a start this season.

The Sabres are now 9-3-2 on the season with 20 points and still sit near the top of the Eastern Conference standings. They'll be back at KeyBank Center on Saturday night when they host the New York Islanders.
