The Sabres have been in attack mode their last two games. The result is Buffalo has scored eight goals. However, the Sabres have allowed 12 goals.
The Bruins can take advantage especially with their elite line of Patrice Bergeron, Brad Marchand and David Pastrnak. They've helped the Bruins produce 3 or more goals in seven of their last nine games. The Bruins have scored five goals in three of their last four games.
The Sabres have tallied at least 3 goals in six of their past eight games. Boston's net play has been disappointing.
I see a continuation of this type of scoring so 5 1/2 goals is a short number.
