The Buffalo Sabres are beyond desperate for a win on Wednesday, after dropping their last 3 games. In addition, Boston is also looking for a turnaround, after losing their last game by way of shut out against The Flames.

For example, their only scoring 2.9 goals on 28.4 shots per game. Fortunately they’ve found some success with the powerplay, capitalizing on 21.6% of chances, which ranks 11th league wide.
Defensively, The Sabres cannot seem to stop forwards from shooting or scoring. As they are allowing a ugly 3.4 goals on 32.8 shots per outing. Slightly better is their PK%, shutting down powerplays at a 20.6% rate.
Worth noting, Buffalo’s goaltender Craig Anderson is dealing with an upper body injury, carrying a lot of uncertainty on reliability.

Free Boston Bruins vs. Buffalo Sabres NHL Prediction
This Eastern Conference battle could be closer then some may think, considering Boston’s troubles on the road, and Buffalos impressive powerplay. But Buffalo has struggled against Boston in the last decade, but then again things aren’t always so cut and dry in hockey.
As Boston is expected to edge a close game, and they’re a giant betting favorite, serious value lies within backing Buffalo. Keep in mind, The Sabres have the weapons to keep things close, and Boston is under 500 on the road so far this year.
