Buffalo is one of the regular underdogs of the NHL. This season is no exception, as the Sabres failed in the first half of the regular season. Nevertheless, they suddenly transformed themselves in March, enabling them to beat such powerful clubs as Vegas, Toronto, Calgary, Vancouver and Pittsburgh. All these efforts were enough for the Blue-Yellows to move up to 12th place in the Eastern Conference standings.
Washington is having an unsuccessful regular season by their standards. They would make the playoffs, but they suffered a significant slump in the middle of the regular season, which has left them in eighth place in the Eastern Conference standings. Their losing streak has been broken and in the last ten meetings, the Red and Blue have won seven games, while losing three. Now, Washington will have to improve their position.
Expert Betting Tips
Buffalo has been on an impressive run lately, winning five of their previous six meetings, but Washington is the favourites for the upcoming clash. Peter Laviolette's side is extremely motivated right now, as they need to improve their standings. In the current regular season, the Capitals beat the Blades in both head-to-head encounters. Therefore, we suggest betting on Washington to win for 1.76.
Buffalo and Washington have been a solid pairing lately to score. In their previous four head-to-head encounters, the two teams have combined for 27 goals (6.75 goals per game average).

Alexander Ovechkin continues to chase Wayne Gretzky in the battle for the title of the best shooter in NHL history. Currently, the Russian has 124 pucks left to reach this legendary mark. He's already 40 goals in 63 games played and is unlikely to catch up with Auston Matthews, who is already six goals behind, but the game with Buffalo is a good chance to improve his mark. You can bet on Alexander Ovechkin Total Over 0.5 for 1.862.
