Buffalo played well at the end of January, winning five times in six games. The Sabres had a streak of five wins in a row before the last one, but they could not beat Minnesota on the road, although they earned one point in the treasury - they lost 2:3 in the shootout. And in total, Buffalo has 56 points in 49 games, with which they are right to be in fourth place in the Atlantic Division standings but not in the playoff zone. Pittsburgh, eighth in the East, has just one more, so the team could already be there at the end of this meeting.
Carolina looks extremely powerful this season. The Hurricanes have lost only nine times in 50 games, which is an awesome result. So with 74 points, they are in first place in the standings of the Metropolitan Division and second place in the table of the entire East. Only Boston is ahead, with seven more. Now Carolina has an excellent winning streak of six straight victories. In the last game, they beat Los Angeles (5:4) in overtime.
Expert Betting Tips
Bookmakers see Carolina as the favorite in the upcoming game, and we agree. The Sabres also look good lately, but they could be better, they have less ambition, and their squad is weaker. The Hurricanes are scoring win after win, so they can take away two points. We suggest betting on the final win for the visitors, taking into account overtime and the shootout.
