Will the Sabres be able to confirm that their success at the beginning of the championship was not by chance? We’ll pick a few options to bet on at once.Get Your Welcome Bonus!
Seattle have assembled a lineup
The management of the new NHL team is criticized for a reason. Seattle have been assembled with an extreme bias towards offense. That’s not to say when third-string center-forward Jared McCann is the team’s leader in scoring with 7 points on goal+passes but a -3 utility rating. That imbalance has hindered the team’s success thus far. Dave Hakstol’s team is coming into the game against Buffalo in last place in the Pacific Division with only three wins in 9 games.
Are Buffalo done?
No sooner have Sabres fans rejoiced than Buffalo began to resemble themselves with each successive game of recent seasons. Don Granato’s team approached the game in Seattle with two straight losses - 2-3 to Los Angeles and 3-5 to San Jose. In general, the upcoming meeting will be the fourth away for the Sabres. Before the losses to the Kings and the Sharks, they managed to outscore Anaheim 4-3 in overtime.
