Mitchell's goal lifts Sabres past Capitals, 2-1

WASHINGTON (AP) Buffalo coach Ted Nolan would rather discuss perseverance than luck. The Sabres used a little of both to extend their winning streak.

Torrey Mitchell scored the tiebreaking goal with 7:42 left, Jhonas Enroth stopped 43 shots, and the Sabres beat the Washington Capitals 2-1 Saturday night for their third straight win.

Buffalo won despite being outshot 44-26, getting a goal after a perfect bounce off the back wall and surviving eight shots from Alex Ovechkin - including one that banged off the post.
