Puck Line Pick
The Sabres have been a bit of disappointment this season, but they’ve been a completely different squad at home, going 14-7-3. Unfortunately, they’ve hit a bit of a skid, as they’re 6-10-1 since December 14th, although only four of those losses came in Buffalo. After slightly turning around their rough stretch by winning three straight earlier this month, they’ve since dropped a pair to Nashville and Ottawa.
Over Under Pick
The Canadiens are similarly disappointing, although they are 4-2 over their last six. That stretch includes a pair of road wins, and that’s a good sign for a squad that previously hadn’t won a road game since December 23rd. Montreal is actually better on the road this season (12-9-3) and they’ve done admirably playing as underdogs (12-13-3).
