The Sabres are heading home and that will give the Sabres a partial advantage heading into the game here. However, the Sabres have to play a tough game against the Capitals in D.C. and that will definitely make it harder to get the win in this game as the Capitals will wear the Sabres down, but the Islanders play the Lightning in what could be a high scoring affair. Final Score Prediction, Buffalo Sabres win 4-3.
