Monday night, January 14th brings you an exciting NHL matchup between the Buffalo Sabres and the Edmonton Oilers live from Rogers Place. The Sabres are coming off a tough loss to Tampa Bay on Saturday by a score of 5-3, and the Oilers lost a close one to Arizona 3-2 at home, also on Saturday night.
After their hot start to the season, the Sabres now sit in the 9th spot in the Eastern Conference, tied with the New York Islanders with 52 points, just one point off of 7th behind Montreal. Buffalo aren’t doing themselves any favors at the moment, having lost two games in a row, and four of their last six.
Jack Eichel is Buffalo’s points leader with 15 goals and 34 assists while Jeff Skinner leads the team in goals with 30 on the year. Projected starting goalie Carter Hutton has a 14-13-3 record with a 2.62 GAA and a .916 save percentage. The Sabres are averaging 2.91 goals per game while giving up an average of 2.89 goals per game against.
Injury Report: D Casey Nelson is listed as “out” for Monday’s game.
The Oilers have been on a recent slump as well, losing three out of their last five games, and barely hanging on to any playoff hopes, sitting two points off the coveted 8th spot in the west. With a .500 home record, a win here is not a guarantee even though the Sabres are coming in with a pretty lousy 9-10-3 road record.
Connor McDavid is the Oilers leader in points with 27 goals and 40 assists, he also leads the team in goals scored. Projected starting goalie is Cam Talbot who has a 9-13-2 record with a 3.17 GAA and a .896 save percentage. Edmonton is averaging 2.80 goals per game and are giving up an average of 3.20 goals per game.
Injury Report: RW Kailer Yamamoto and D Alexander Petrovic are both listed as “questionable” for Monday night while Defensemen Oscar Klefbom and Andrej Sekera are both listed as “out” for the contest.

Free Buffalo Sabres vs. Edmonton Oilers NHL Prediction:
With both teams struggling at this point of the year, it’s hard to pick a clear cut winner in this game. Buffalo looks to be the healthier of the two teams at the moment, but coming off of two straight losses is a hard thing to overlook.
With that said, I still am going with the Sabres to win this game on the road and get one back in the win column.
