Goals Have Been Hard to Come By For Bruins, Sabres

Buffalo heads east tonight looking for a rare win against the Boston Bruins. The Sabres have actually been pretty good of late as they’ve cashed the puckline in their last five games, in which they are 4-1 straight up.

SHARK BITES
  • The Sabres are 2-7 in their last 9 games against the Bruins.
  • The total has gone UNDER in 6 of the Bruins' last 7 games against teams with losing records.
  • The total has gone UNDER in the Sabres' last 6 games with 1 day off between games.

Robin Lehner has been the main contributor to the Sabres’ resurgence as he’s won three of his last four games with a combined save percentage of .961. During that span, his team has scored an average of just two goals a game in front of him and he’s just 3-6 for his career against the Bruins.

Boston had been equally as stingy until their blow-up against the Rangers but fair play to them – everyone’s been getting blown up by the Rangers.

The UNDER is trending in the direction of both teams tonight and if Lehner and Tuukka Rask start between the pipes, you can go ahead and take the UNDER whether the total is 5 or 5.5. Buffalo has given up the third-fewest goals in the league and Rask has given up just 1.98 goals per game in his seven starts.
