At 7:05 pm, our selection is on the Buffalo Sabres over the Washington Capitals.  The Caps broke out of their six-game slump in a big way, beating the Red Wings in Detroit on Tuesday night and leap-frogging back into a Wild Card spot in the process.  But if they're going to win games consistently, the Caps are going to have to do something more than they have been -- shoot the puck.  Washington's shot production over the last two weeks has been abysmal.  Over their last seven games, the Caps have managed more than 26 shots on just one occasion.  With the exception of their April 4 loss to the Penguins (31 shots), the Caps have only averaged a measly 21.8 shots per game.  That scant offensive production won't get you many wins in the NHL and the Caps desperately need another win tonight to stay in the Eastern Conference Playoff picture.  The Sabres were eliminated from playoff contention, but this is their final home game of the season, so I don't expect a lackluster effort.  They have taken three of the last five meetings with the Caps, including a 6-2 thrashing in the last meeting on April 2.  The Caps are also 8-14 in their last 22 revenging a blowout loss of four goals or more.  Take Buffalo.  As always, good luck...Al McMordie.

Al’s Pick Buffalo Sabres: -130
