Capitals try to cut inconsistencies versus Sabres

BUFFALO, N.Y. -- After one of their worst -- and most surprising -- losses of the season, the Washington Capitals will have a good chance at ending their road trip on a high note Monday when they take on the struggling Buffalo Sabres.

The Capitals (33-18-8) were stunned Saturday in a 7-1 loss to the Chicago Blackhawks, who snapped an eight-game losing streak.

Consistency has been an issue for the Capitals lately. Despite Washington's solid record and playoff positioning -- second in the Metropolitan Division, it has largely rotated wins and losses during the past month.
