7-Unit Play. #025. Take Buffalo vs Carolina (Friday, January 11 at 7:35p.m.)
As per this selection on Buffalo, we like how the club has responded after losing their Captain, Jack Eichel for a short period of time. His absence has meant that Jeff Skinner is now the focal point of the attack and he has delivered in a big way so far. Now Skinner makes his return to Carolina where he spent his first 8 years, and you know when a player returns to his former stomping ground, that team plays extremely hard for him to get the win. We like the fact that Buffalo is rested and is going off a good win against New Jersey. The Sabres have played just four games in January and have had two days off between their last two games. We believe they will have the fresher legs tonight and that'll make the world of difference. Carolina, on the other hand, is going off a 3-1 loss last night to Tampa and will be playing in back-to-back situations tonight, after traveling. That's tough to do. Not to mention, this is Carolina's third game in four nights, a spot in which they've won only 5 times in their last 20 games in the third game of a 3-in-4 situation. The Sabres come in with some great trends to bank on, as they are 4-1 int heir last 5 after scoring 4 goals or more in their previous game and are 6-2 in their last 8 games playing on 2 days rest. We believe Buffalo is trending in the right direction and they will be the better team tonight and secure the two points and cash our ticket.
