Prediction

The Golden Knights have been playing much better lately and have won 6 of their last 7 games scoring an average of 4.5 goals per game on that strecht but already lost against the Sabres earlier this season at home. The Sabres are having a hell of a season and are the only team undefeated at home with a 12-0 in Buffalo. The Golden Knights will be playing on back to back games while the Sabres are well rested and it's really hard to go against them at home. Take the Sabres.
