WASHINGTON -- Washington goalie Philipp Grubauer insisted his focus Friday night was like any other, even with his parents watching for the first time.Whatever he did worked.Grubauer made 32 saves in relief of normal starter Braden Holtby, helping the Capitals scrap their way to a 3-1 victory over the Buffalo Sabres on Friday night.When the puck drops, its all business, said the German-born Grubauer, who also turned 25 on the day his parents first watched their son in an NHL arena. But its pretty special for me. Its one of my favorite moments.Marcus Johansson scored his eighth goal of the season, and Daniel Winnik and Brett Connolly also added goals as Washington closed its five-game homestand with its fourth victory.Connollys goal on a late third-period power play added some needed insurance.With Holtby resting for Saturdays game at Toronto, Grubauer made 26 saves after the first intermission, and seven seven came against a Buffalo power play that entered Friday ranked ninth in efficiency.He played really well, (and) we played well in front of him, Capitals coach Barry Trotz said of Grubauer, who has won three of his five starts. When things got a little hairy on the penalty kill, he came up with a couple of big stops.Sam Reinharts third-period goal helped Buffalos NHL-worst offense avoid being shut out for the third this time this season. The Sabres are averaging 1.81 goals.Anders Nilsson made 29 stops for the Sabres, as coach Dan Bylsma also gave No. 1 netminder Robin Lehner the night off.We dont have the bounces with us right now, Nilsson said. Weve been having to work really hard for every goal we score. Hopefully we can turn it around soon.Two days after Alex Ovechkins hat trick pushed the Capitals to a 4-3 victory over St. Louis, Washington grinded out a more workmanlike victory, with each goal coming off a rebound or redirection.Winnik put Washington ahead early in the first after Lars Ellers shot from the left struck off Nilssons pads.Johansson made it 2-0 about a third of the way through the second on another broken play that began when he found Justin Williams on the right to spark an odd-man rush.Williams tried to pass across the crease to Nicklas Backstrom. The puck knocked off defender Josh Gorges skate and to the trailing Johansson, who beat Nilsson over his stick side.Reinhart cut it to 2-1 midway through the third. But the Capitals added insurance on their fourth power play with 3:55 left, as Connolly slammed home a rebound after Ovechkin forced Nilsson into another pad save.It was a good time of the game to get one, Connolly said. They were coming pretty hard there and it was good to see that one go in.Buffalo was left frustrated by its inability to find a similar goal.I think we couldve probably had more than a handful of scoring chances with the power play, but nothing to show for it, Bylsma said.Game notes The Capitals have earned at least a point in 13 of their last 15 home games against the Sabres. ... The Sabres have scored two goals or fewer in 12 of their last 13 games. ... Washington RW Nate Schmidt was a healthy scratch for the first time this homestand. ...

While hell be dialed in to that tournament on a course he loves, you can forgive him if his eyes glance down the calendar just a bit, towards April. Louisville winds up ACC play this weekend pretty much knowing that a win over Wake Forest isnt going to be enough to get the Cardinals into the conference championship game.That would take a complete collapse by undefeated Clemson over the next two weeks.But the No. 6 Cardinals (8-1, 6-1 ACC) still harbor hopes of snagging one of the four spots in the College Football Playoff as they prepare to host Wake Forest Saturday. Kickoff is at 7 p.m. ET with ESPN2 telecasting from Papa Johns Cardinal Stadium in Louisville.After the Demon Deacons (6-3, 3-2 ACC) the Cardinals go out of conference play with a trip to Houston and a home game against instate rival Kentucky winding up their regular season.Impressive wins in their last three games could provide them with an argument to be included in the playoff, but Cardinals coach Bobby Petrino wants his players to focus only on the Deacons, who nearly upset the Cardinals last year in Winston-Salem.All I told them was we can only control how we play, how we go out and perform, and how we win games, Petrino said. That is the only thing we can control right there.How they win games is usually big. The Cardinals romped past Boston College 52-7 last week and earlier whipped North Carolina State 54-13, Florida State 63-20, and Syracuse 63-28.Quarterback Lamar Jackson has been the main catalyst and early on established himself as the favorite for the Heisman Trophy. He has rushed for over 131 yards a game, passed for nearly 306, and has accounted for 45 touchdowns -- 19 on runs and 26 on passes -- while throwing just six interceptions in 288 pass attempts.But the Cardinals also have had some close calls.They scored a late touchdown that came with the help of a late penalty against Duke for a 10-point win at home over the Blue Devils, and they scored with just 13 seconds left for a 32-25 win at Virginia after falling behind 25-24 with just over two minutes left. The Cardinals lost by six at Clemson after falling behind by 18 points.ddddddddddddThe close calls could have affected Louisvilles placement when the first CFP rankings came out last week. The Cardinals were No. 7 then.I know that last week when the rankings came out our players were upset about it, Petrino said. Really what we talked about was that we really just need to go out and play well and execute and play the type of ball that we know how to play.I do think it motivated us.The result was the 45-point destruction of Boston College.Wake Forest, with its aggressive and veteran defense, could be a different matter.Their defensive front will be as active as anybody we have played this year, Petrino said. What I mean by that is they really rush the passer, they play great technique on the run, their linebackers are fast and sprint to the football, and very experienced secondary.While the Cardinals came into the season looking to compete for a national championship, the Deacons have already achieved their goal. Coach Dave Clawson made no secret of the fact he was intent on getting his team into the postseason. With six wins already and a plethora of bowls, that seems a certainty.I was very open about it and very frank about it at the beginning of the year, that I thought it was a very realistic expectation to go to a bowl game this year, he said. I would have been very disappointed if we didnt get into a bowl.Quarterback John Wolford, who has started since his freshman year, has been a key figure. He had a 64-yard touchdown run in Wakes 27-20 win over Virginia last week and is second on the team in rushing with 456 yards, behind running back Matt Colburns 463. The Deacons have already rushed for more yards in nine games (1,476) than they had all of 2015 (1,262).This was a big goal for us going into the year, Wolford said of reaching bowl eligibility. But we cant be satisfied. Cheap Jerseys 2018 NFL Jerseys From China Wholesale Authentic Jerseys Cheap Jerseys Wholesale Wholesale Jerseys 2019 Wholesale Nike NFL Jerseys NFL Jerseys Wholesale ' ' '
