The Jackets have gone 10-0-1 in their last 11 games overall and have won five straight on home ice while the Sabres have shown a little sign of life having won three of their last five games overall. The Sabres and Blue Jackets have split their two games this season, with each winning on the road.

Not a whole lot has gone right for the Buffalo Sabres this season and the trade deadline purge did nothing to improve the team down the stretch. The team is scoring just 1.89 goals per game this year and is giving up 3.29 – unbelievable.

The Sabres have won three of their last five games and have flexed a little offensive muscle over that span. Outside of a shutout loss to the Islanders two starts back, Buffalo has scored 15 goals in four games.

Brian Gionta has seven points in his last five games and Matt Moulson and Tyler Ennis each have six points in their last six games. Everyone is playing for a job next year – that pride looks good on the Sabres.

Andres Lindback will get the start between the pipes even though Matt Hackett could have played. Lindback is 6-14-2 on the year with a 3.16 GAA and .906 save percentage. He will give up his share of goals almost guaranteed.

The Sabres will be looking at the elusive finish line ahead of this game – no reason to think an uptick in production in either end of the rink is inevitable.

Well, it’s a case of a little too little, a little too late for the Columbus Blue Jackets who battled an almost unfair rash of injuries this season and will fail to make the postseason because of it. Absolutely everything is going right for this team right now as evidenced by their 10-0-1 record in their last 11 games.

Columbus has scored and astounding 45 non-shootout goals during their 11 game streak – no wonder they are winning games. Brandon Dubinski has six points in three games, Buffalo native Nick Foligno has five points in three games, Marko Dano has four points in three games, Scott Hartnell has 19 points in 19 games and depth players Cody Goloubef and Jeremy Morin each have two points in two games. The Jackets are suddenly a deep team playing with a ton of confidence on all four lines.

On the flip side the Jackets have allowed 26 goals in the last 11 games. The play of Sergei Bobrovsky is a big reason why the Jackets have exploded as the season comes to an end.

He’s gone 9-0-1 with a 2.25 goals-against average in his past 10 starts while posting a 2.16 GAA in winning his last five at home.

It is hard to fathom the Sabres defeating the hottest team in the game right now but it isn’t hard to imagine them scoring a couple goals – Buffalo is playing arguably their best offensive hockey of the season right now. The same goes for Columbus who has averaged over four goals per game their last 11.

It all adds up to a high-scoring affair Friday night. There is no value on the Moneyline so take the Over with confidence – this could be a 4-3 of 5-3 win for the Jackets.
