NHL Scores Pittsburgh Penguins vs. Buffalo Sabres

The Pittsburgh Penguins come into Buffalo to take on the Sabres in NHL action tonight. They are looking to compete with the Islanders and the Capitals for top spot in the Metro Division. If the Penguins can snag a victory from Buffalo, they will be tied for second with the Islanders in their division. Moreover, the Penguins are coming off a win against the Capitals where they actually snapped their seven-game winning streak by a 5-3 score.

The Buffalo Sabres are looking to solve their recent competitive issues after falling to the Dallas Stars by a shutout score of 2-0. They simply couldn’t solve the red-hot Ben Bishop, who has now had three consecutive shutout victories. Of course, this should be a fun game to watch and wager on.

Pittsburgh Penguins

When the Penguins squared off against the Capitals, they started off with a 1-0 deficit upon the heels of Jakub Vrana’s goal in the first period. Vrana also added a goal against the Penguins to make a 2-0 score. However, Jake Guentzel and Sidney Crosby each scored goals to make it a 2-2 tie. Crosby then scored again in the second to make it a 3-2 advantage for the Penguins. What with the momentum shift, a couple of goals were traded across, but in the wind-up the Penguins stopped the Capitals winning ways with a 5-3 score.

Buffalo Sabres

In the Sabres’ game against the Dallas Stars they pretty much met their match against Dallas goal Ben Bishop. They lost the game 2-0 upon the heels of two goals from brand-new NHL rookie Roope Hintz. Although Dallas had their opportunities, they could not capitalize and the game finished with yet another shutout for Bishop.

NHL Scores Pittsburgh Penguins vs. Buffalo Sabres

When I look at this game, the one main thing that sticks out at me would have to be the fact that Pittsburgh is on fire right now. Moreover, they are competing for a divisional spot. I’m not saying that the Sabres don’t have some talent, but the Penguins are definitely the more motivated team. Not to mention the fact they have the wind at their sails from snapping a potent Washington Capitals team. I call this upcoming game for the Pens.

NHL Pick: Pittsburgh Penguins -160.
