I get the case that could be made for Boston here as the Bruins are easily the better team while the Sabres have nothing to play for but pride, with that said, the Sabres have found the heart to give the Bruins a battle every time they take the ice this season, and I could see a one goal game here, so give me Buffalo +1.5 in this one.
