(Sports Network) - The Buffalo Sabres are about to get their road prowess tested a little.
The Sabres, who have thrived away from HSBC Arena this season, begin a four- game trip Saturday when they visit the Washington Capitals at the Verizon Center.
The Sabres are 11-1-0 away from home this season, including a 10-0-0 mark to begin the season. Buffalo's lone road loss came on November 18 in Ottawa.
On Friday the Sabres were at home and managed their second straight win against the New York Rangers. This time it was a 4-3 shootout affair, after Tuesday's 2-1 overtime tilt.
In the latter match, Daniel Briere scored the lone shootout goal and Ryan Miller came up with some huge stops in overtime to anchor the win.
