The Buffalo Sabres and New Jersey Devils meet Tuesday in NHL action at the Prudential Center.
The Buffalo Sabres need a win after losing 10 of their last 12 games. The Buffalo Sabres are averaging 2.1 goals per game and are scoring on 22.5 percent of their power play opportunities. Sam Reinhart leads Buffalo with 13 goals, Taylor Hall has 17 assists and Victor Olofsson has 84 shots on goal. Defensively, the Buffalo Sabres are allowing 3.4 goals per game and are killing 80 percent of their opponents power plays. Carter Hutton has given up 39 goals on 341 shots faced and Linus Ullmark has given up 38 goals on 478 shots.
The New Jersey Devils need a win after losing five of their last six games. The New Jersey Devils are averaging 2.4 goals per game and are scoring on 12.9 percent of their power play opportunities. Miles Wood leads New Jersey with 11 goals, Ty Smith has 17 assists and Kyle Palmieri has 84 shots on goal. Defensively, the New Jersey Devils are allowing three goals per game and are killing 73.3 percent of their opponents power plays. Mackenzie Blackwood has allowed 64 goals on 701 shots faced and Scott Wedgewood has allowed 30 goals on 347 shots.
The Sabres are 15-52 in their last 67 road games and 14-37 in their last 51 overall. The Devils are 17-36 in their last 53 home games and 1-5 in their last 6 overall. The over is 7-2 in Sabres last 9 games playing on 2 days rest. The under is 9-4 in Devils last 13 overall. The Sabres are 4-9 in the last 13 meetings in New Jersey. The road team is 4-1 in the last 5 meetings.
I'm not running to the window to back either of these teams, but I'm certainly not laying juice with either side based on their current forms. The Buffalo Sabres have been downright awful, with an offense that doesn't score and just two wins in over a month. However, the Devils aren't lighting the world on fire in their own right. Also, three of the Sabres eight wins this season have come against the Devils. If there was a spot to finally back the Sabres and take advantage of plus money, it would probably be here.
