The capital lost again to Buffalo and left the playoff zone.

“Washington” was able to break the painful series of defeats in the last match, beating “Detroit” on the road. And, most surprisingly, they were able to enter the wild card zone after their first victory in seven games. However, the situation is complicated because each point lost by the “capital” gives its competitors the opportunity to surpass them. “Buffalo” recently lost its theoretical chances of reaching the playoffs, while setting an anti-NHL record for this indicator. The teams met nine days ago and then the Blades defeated their opponents.

Alexander Ovechkin wasted no time in Buffalo and even managed to visit the Liverpool fans’ bar. It is true that the home match of the Europa League quarterfinals did not go well for Merseyside, they were defeated 0-3. Let’s see how Washington did today.

The teams played the first half of the match academically and created almost no threat to the goalkeepers. Things were heading towards logical zeros at the end of the period, but Buffalo knew how to take advantage of their half chances: Zach Benson played successfully on the rebound.

Having not made it to the end of the period, Washington, it seems, received a pretty clear instruction that he needed to improve. But no, the air of apathy grew even greater, which Buffalo finally took advantage of: Alex Tuck fired from the slot past Lindgren and put the guests in an even more difficult position.

But the good thing about the capital this season is the execution. He took advantage of his first opposing scoring opportunity in the second twenty minutes. Max Passioretty flicked the ball into the net, where Connor McMichael beat the rested Luukkonen.

The puck at the end of the second half gave some inspiration to Washington, which had the initiative in the first half of the final period, but Jack Quinn poured a refreshing shower on the backs of the Capitals players with his puck.

After Buffalo, he also scored into an empty net, but that wasn’t the point. The visitors found strength for another attack that ended with a goal.

Among the assists was Alexander Ovechkin, for whom this assist became the 697th of his career, which allowed him to take second place in the history of assists among Russian players. Alexander was ahead of his former teammate, striker Sergei Fedorov. The national record belongs to Pittsburgh Penguins forward Evgeni Malkin (794).

The capital made life very difficult for themselves, perhaps for them it was the main game of the year, but they lost and were left out of the playoff zone. Washington will have to hold the next two games with Tampa and Boston; Until the last game against Philadelphia, Alexander Ovechkin’s team may lose any chance of entering the eight.
