At this point, it seems like betting against the Buffalo Sabres is money in the bank. They’ve only won five times in their last 31 games, so there’s a pretty good chance that when they step on the ice, they’re going to be coming up short that evening.
As for the Rangers, they’re about as good as it gets these days which is why they are favorites tonight on NHL Odds in Betsson. They’ve now won 12 of their last 15 games and are really clicking. Goaltender Cam Talbot has stood tall between the pipes, allowing one goal or less in four of his last five (allowed two goals in the other start). So far this month, he has an incredible .966 save percentage. On the flip side, the Sabres have allowed at least three goals in six straight games while giving up an average of 4.0 goals per game.
-Injuries for Buffalo: Mark Pysyk, Jake Mccabe, Nathan Lieuwen, Chad Johnson, Zemgus Girgensons, Evander Kane, Patrick Kaleta, Josh Gorges, Cody McCormik…
-The Sabres have failed on all 11 power-play opportunities in the last six games and are 1-for-26 in the last 11.
I’ll take the Rangers.
