ANALYSIS:

This is a play on the BUFFALO SABRES as part of our NHL Thursday Hat Trick. Buffalo has lost four straight games but all of those came on a four-game west coast roadtrip where they dropped to 10-19-4 on the highway. The Sabres have been the complete opposite at home where they are 19-10-4 and they have won four straight including three against current playoff teams. The Sabres are 5-1 in their last six games against the Eastern Conference. Pittsburgh snapped a six-game losing streak with a 7-3 win over Ottawa at home, the third worst team in the NHL. The Penguins are in fifth place in the Eastern Conference thanks to a 23-6-4 record at home but they are just 15-15-2 on the road. They are 3-8 in their last 11 games after scoring five goals or more in their previous game while going 0-5 in their last five road games. Here, we play against road teams off a home win scoring four or more goals going up against an opponent off two or more consecutive road losses. This situation is 66-31 (68 percent) over the last five seasons. 9* (50) Buffalo Sabres
