The Vegas Golden Knights head to Buffalo for a date with the Sabres tonight with puck drop expected to happen at 7:00pm EST.
Vegas comes into this matchup with one of the better records in the entire league at 12-2-0 while the Sabres enter with a 7-6 record. The Golden Knights are looking to remain at the top of the Pacific Division while Buffalo is trying to make up some ground in the Atlantic.
The Vegas offense has been awesome so far this season but it’s the play of the defense that has heled them get to this point. They are only allowing 2.14 goals per game including only 19 over their last eight games. An impressive number for a team that not many expected to be this dominant.
On the flip side, the Sabres offense has been their strength. They are averaging 3.85 goals per game on the year. The defense on the other hand is allowing 3.23 goals per game.
This should be a fun matchup between two teams that have opposite strengths. Vegas should be favorited in this matchup and will poise a real challenge for the Sabres.
Prediction: Golden Knights 5, Sabres 2
