Anaheim Ducks vs Buffalo Sabres prediction

The Anaheim Ducks have actually played their best hockey on the road this season, but they've been a mess overall and aren't a team I'm excited to get behind. The Buffalo Sabres are coming off a nice overtime road win over the Wild and need to take advantage of games like this if they're going to make this last stretch of the season interesting. No excuses for the Sabres here. Give me the Sabres and the PL for max betting value, as I have little use for the Ducks the rest of the way.
