|BUF (-120) @ pinnacle|
I'm playing on BUFFALO. Washington eked out a shootout win when these teams met here on Thursday. The Caps deserve some credit for that victory, as they were seriously short-handed. They'll still be short-handed for this one, too. Facing a revenge-minded and highly motivated Buffalo team, I expect it to catch up with them. The Sabres have had had too many lean years of late. Off to a slow start, they badly want a victory before this (shortened) season slips away on them, too. Slow start notwithstanding, this Buffalo team is more talented than recent editions. Healthier and hungrier, expect them to bounce back with an important "W."
