WASHINGTON (AP) Andre Burakovsky scored in the first period, and Braden Holtby and Pheonix Copley combined for a shutout in the Washington Capitals' 1-0 victory over the Buffalo Sabres on Sunday night in the exhibition opener for both teams.

Copley stopped six shots in the first period, and Holtby made 19 saves over the final 40 minutes. Nathan Lieuwen made 24 saves for the Sabres.
