The Buffalo Sabres hit the road for their only match-up of the season in our nation's capital, heading to Washington D.C. to face the Capitals on Sunday, January 12th at the Verizon Center (3 p.m. face-off). The Caps, who played in Buffalo on Sunday, December 29th, return to Buffalo on Tuesday, January 28th (7:30 p.m. face-off).

The Verizon Center, located at 601 F Street NW in downtown D.C., is not only home-base for the Caps, but also the NBA's Washington Wizards, the WNBA's Washington Mystics, and the Georgetown Hoyas men's college basketball program. The arena seats just over 18,500 spectators for hockey, and hosts more than 200 events each year - not only sports, but concerts, family entertainment, and horse shows.

The Verizon Center features 106 luxury suites, as well as the Captain Morgan Party Pavilion, which can host between 34 and 99 people. The Verizon Center is also home to Papa John’s Pizza, Dunkin' Donuts, Hard Times Café, my Oh! spot (gluten-free foods) and The Greene Turtle Sports Bar and Grille.

Tickets for the Sabres/Caps match-up can be purchased through www.ticketmaster.com; tickets range in price from $53 to $510 (plus taxes and fees).
