With the general skill difference between these two teams, it's easy to select away team to win this matchup. Even though Sharks have been up and down this season, they have been able to win close games.
Buffalo is the worst team in the league with mere 10 points. Furthermore they are missing their defenseman Josh Gorges who is consistently one of the top shot blockers in the league. Blocking shots and protecting your own net is especially important in a team like Sabres who get dominated for most the games. Without Gorges, Buffalo's defence are in trouble with skillful Sharks offensemen.
