Bruins at Sabres 12/29/18 - NHL Picks & Predictions

The Bruins are taking to the road to face the Sabres here. However, the road has not been that kind of a place to the Bruins in recent game play as the Bruins are only 7-9-4 on the road. However, the Bruins are facing a Sabres team that has been bouncing all around, but has been consistently good which is something that is very odd for the Sabres.

The Bruins are most likely going to send out Tukka Rask in this game here. Rask on the season has managed to pick up 8 wins for the Bruins and has given up 2.72 goals a game. Rask has saved 91.1% of the shots. The Sabres have been rebuilding and while this season was not projected to be one of the Sabres seasons to play high at, they have definitely bounced back from the projections and have showcased the team as one that is to be taken seriously as they have beaten a lot of the really good teams on the year.

Carter Hutton is projected to start in this game for the Sabres. On the year Hutton has been able to turn away 91.6% of the shots on the year. Hutton has also managed to pick up 13 wins with a 2.64 goals against average.

The Sabres have been playing great hockey this year and really have been able to shock a lot of teams as the Sabres are supposed to be rebuilding right now. The other thing that has helped the Sabres out is the fact that Hutton has shown up big in net on the season so far. Look for Hutton to continue to show up big in the game here and help to bring home a win as the Bruins struggle on the road again. Final Score Prediction, Buffalo Sabres win 3-2.
