Capitals Stop Buffalo Charge

BUFFALO, New York -- Michal Grosek scored with 4:31 left in the third period, lifting the Buffalo Sabres to a 2-2 tie with the Washington Capitals.


Buffalo had its winning streak stopped at three. The Sabres finished their club-record seven-game homestand with a 4-2-1 record.


Grosek's 11th goal was his first since Jan. 5. Steve Konowalchuk had given the Capitals a 2-1 lead with 6:12 remaining. Dominik Hasek made 27 saves for the Sabres. Jim Carey made 22 saves for Washington.


Red Wings 4, Stars 3 OT. In Detroit, Vyacheslav Kozlov scored 80 seconds into overtime as the Detroit Red Wings ended a six-game home winless streak with a victory over the Dallas Stars.


Kozlov's 17th goal -- and fifth game-winner -- came after Dallas defenseman Sergei Zubov couldn't control a bouncing puck played high into the Stars' end. Kozlov dug out the loose puck and backhanded it past Dallas goalie Andy Moog.

Sandstrom's assist was his first point in three games since Detroit acquired him last week in a trade with Pittsburgh.
