WASHINGTON (AP) - Troy Brouwer had a goal and an assist in the second period of the Washington Capitals' 5-3 victory over the Buffalo Sabres on Sunday night.

Jason Chimera added his first regular-season goal in nearly a year for the Capitals (12-15-1), who broke out of an offensive slump in which they had scored only seven times in five games - losing four.

Alex Ovechkin got the Capitals going with his 350th NHL goal, scored only 19 seconds in, and Marcus Johansson and Matthieu Perrault also had a goal and an assist each as Washington beat Buffalo at home for the seventh time in eight games.

Cody Hodgson scored twice for the Sabres (10-15-4), who have lost five straight road games and have won just once in seven games overall.
