Article excerpt

Evander Kane had a goal and an assist, Chad Johnson stopped 33 shots, and the host Buffalo Sabres beat Washington 4-1 Saturday night to hand Capitals goalie Braden Holtby a rare loss.

Phil Varone, Tim Schaller and Cody Franson also scored for Buffalo, which snapped a six-game home losing streak and has now won three of four overall.

Marcus Johansson ruined Johnson's shutout bid 2:54 into the third period with an unassisted goal.
