Situational Slaughter Total - Rickenbach NHL Rotation #57 Friday 10* Top Play OVER the total in New York Rangers vs Buffalo Sabres @ 7:05 ET - The Sabres used rookie goalie Jonas Johansson last night because Linus Ullmark is still out with an injury. That means Carter Hutton is likely to get the start tonight and he has been horrible on the road this season. Just 2 wins in 9 road decisions for Hutton this season. He has a 3.91 GAA in road starts. The Sabres should rally with a little momentum after scoring 3 third period goals to earn a point in last night's home ice shootout loss versus the Red Wings. However, Buffalo's struggles between the pipes continue and that means plenty of goals in this one. The Sabres will get theirs but they won't be able to stop the Rangers. New York has been on a run as they have won 7 of 11 games thanks in part to improved play in the offensive zone. Going further back, 14 of the Rangers last 22 games have totaled 7 or more goals. They tend to get involved in some wild, high-scoring games. In fact, in 13 of their last 20 games either the Rangers or their opponent have had 5 goals. That is why I love the over here at 6.5 goals and with no juice on the over. It is a solid value considering how wild Rangers games have been and how determined the Sabres will be in the offensive zone here battling for their playoff lives. The issue, again, for Buffalo is between the pipes and the Rangers will certainly show no mercy in the offensive zone either. The last two meetings between these teams have each totaled 8 goals and I expect this one will too! 10* OVER the total in New York Rangers
