The Buffalo Sabres and New Jersey Devils face off on Friday in an NHL showdown at the Prudential Center. 

Can Sabres Move to .500?

The Sabres sit with a 3-4 record overall but they are coming off a victory in the last game. In the last game against Ottawa Senators, the Sabres scored six goals and that was enough for the two goal victory. Tage Thompson scored two goals and added an assist. The Sabres are averaging 2.71 goals while their defense is giving up 3.14 goals per game. The offense is ranked 23rd. Rasmus Dahlin hasn’t scored a goal but he has had added seven assists. 

Devils Defense Looks to Move Back to .500

The Devils have had a decent start to the season, but they are coming off a bad loss in the last game. The defense really struggled in the last game giving up six goals and that led to the two gaol defeat. Tyler Toffoli had a strong game scoring two goals and adding another assist. The Devils are averaging 4.0 goals per game while their defense is giving up 3.67 goals per game. The offense is ranked 3rd in the defense is ranked 27th. 

Shane’s Free Pick

I don’t trust either of these defenses. The Sabres are giving up 3.14 goals per game while the Devils are giving up 3.67 goals per game. The Devils are also averaging 4.0 goals per game and they are going to have no issue running up the score here. Look for the Devils to have a game where they score five or six goals by themselves and this game is going to go over the total. 

The pick in this article is the opinion of the writer, not a PickDawgz site consensus.
