Pittsburgh vs Buffalo: High Flying Penguins Host Toothless Sabres

Pittsburgh Penguins: NHL leaders in goals per game

Two words – scoring juggernaut – is the best way to describe the Pittsburgh offense early in the 2014-15 NHL season. With 36 goals, through their first nine games, the Penguins lead the league with a 4.00 goals for per game average. Led by Sidney Crosby, who has registered seven goals and eight assists, Pittsburgh (6-2-1) has earned at least a point in seven of their nine games played. The Pens top three scorers, Crosby, Evgeni Malkin and Patric Hornqvist, have combined to post 39 points in nine games – the entire Buffalo team has registered 31 points in eleven games. Pittsburgh has been lethal on the powerplay as they have converted 39.5% of their chances. Buffalo has been shorthanded 41 times this season – 27th worst in the league.

Buffalo Sabres: Slumbering season continues in upstate New York

Two words – really bad – is the best way to describe the entire Buffalo team as the Sabres get set to battle Pittsburgh in the first of three meetings this season. Buffalo (2-8-1) earned their fifth point of the year as they dropped a 3-2 OT decision at home versus Boston on Thursday. The schedule makers have not been kind to Buffalo as the Sabres are playing their sixth game in eleven days. Five of those have been road contests including a tough three game swing through California. It’s rather shocking that Buffalo has earned three points in their last three games (1-1-1) as they were outshot by a 104-40 combined count in those contests.

Sabres vs Penguins NHL Prediction: With the 2014 MLB season now complete, congratulations to the San Francisco Giants and Madison Bumgarner, getting in on total studs versus total duds NHL action becomes a top priority for us moving forward. While the prices will never be anything to write home about, steadily building our bankroll is and always will be our main objective. Pittsburgh is post-Halloween monster chalk on the SportsInteraction betting board but the Penguins have covered the puck line in all six of their wins this season. Buffalo meanwhile has lost by two or more goals in seven of their eleven games. The Pens have two days off before heading to Minnesota so they should bring a full effort to the rink tonight. Soar with the Penguins and load up with a 1000 unit wager on the puck line at the SportsInteraction sportsbook.
