CAPITALS 5, SABRES 3: Troy Brouwer had a goal and an assist in the second period of Washington's victory over Buffalo on Sunday.

Jason Chimera added his first regular-season goal in nearly a year for the Capitals (12-15-1), who broke out of an offensive slump in which they had scored only seven times in five games -- losing four. Alex Ovechkin got the Capitals going with his 350th NHL goal, scored only 19 seconds in, and Marcus Johansson and Matthieu Perrault also had a goal and an assist each as Washington beat Buffalo at home for the seventh time in eight games. Cody Hodgson scored twice for the Sabres (10-15-4), who have lost five straight road games and have won just once in seven games overall. Brian Flynn added a goal the Sabres, who outshot the Capitals 30-25. Washington busted out of its scoring slump with three goals during a 5:22 stretch of the second period.

SENATORS 4, JETS 1: Jakob Silfverberg scored twice to lead Ottawa over Winnipeg. Guillaume Latendresse and Kyle Turris added goals for the Senators (15-8-6), who got 25 saves from Robin Lehner. Zach Bogosian scored the lone goal for the Jets (15-12-2). Ondrej Pavelec made 38 saves, but Winnipeg's three-game winning streak was snapped.

OILERS 3, PREDATORS 2: Jordan Eberle had a goal and assist and Edmonton topped struggling Nashville. Magnus Paajarvi and Lennart Petrell also scored for the Oilers (11-11-6), who have won three of four. Shea Weber and Roman Josi had goals for the Predators (11-12-6), who have lost the first three games of a four-game trip.
