New Jersey Devils
New Jersey is performing far from the best defensive game. Among all teams in the Eastern Conference, the Devils have the second-highest number of goals conceded (105). Only Montreal is worse (109). The visitors are conceding an average of 3.5 goals per game.

Expert Betting Tips
The bookmakers couldn't decide on a favourite, but in our opinion, it's evident. New Jersey has lost six games in a row, and it's not as if their opponents have been stronger than them. On the contrary, Buffalo has shown their mettle in the last three games, taking points from Minnesota and Winnipeg. We believe the Sabres will win in the end. Prediction: Buffalo Sabres will win.
