In a game from NHL, we will see Buffalo Sabres at Washington Capitals.
The Buffalo Sabres dropped a second contest in the last three outings and they are now 20-15. They suffered a big loss when they met the Florida Panthers on Tuesday and will be hoping to bounce back to winning ways. Goalie Carter Hutton is currently 13-11 on the year with a 2.60 GAA and a .917 save percentage. The Sabres are in the middle of the offensive and defensive rankings. They average 2.97 goals per game on offense and allow nearly the same amount on defense, 2.91.
The Washington Capitals failed to extend their winning streak when they hosted the Pittsburgh Penguins on Wednesday. The suffered a narrow loss by 2-1 in a game where did not manage to find the back of the net, even though they had chances. The Caps are 3rd in the highest amount of goals scored with 3.64 per game and they allow 3.06 goals per game.
Both teams met several days ago and Washington prevailed with a 4-3 win. The Sabres have won just 3 of their last 16 visits to Washington and they haven’t won here since 2014. I believe that the Caps will bounce back with a victory and get back to winning ways.
