Buffalo Sabres vs Boston Bruins 04/13/2021 Betting Odds:
It is obvious that the Buffalo Sabres are playing with less pressure on their backs and it manifested to a rare win against one of the better teams in the division. Buffalo played like a well-oiled machine as they pulled off a 5-3 upset win over the Philadelphia Flyers on Sunday. Playing under interim head coach Don Granato could also be a factor in the team’s fine play following a horrendous 18-game losing streak. Since then, the Sabres have accounted for 40% of their total wins in just seven games played. The players admit that the team is now starting to discover their identity on ice, and though it may be too late for them to make a push for the playoffs, the Sabres are willing to buy into the new system as they continue to trust the process.
Players to watch: S. Reinhart C (G 14 A 12 PTS 26), V. Olofsson RW (G 11 A 13 PTS 24), T. Hall LW (G 2 A 17 PTS 19).
The Bruins were left deflated after they got subdued ultimately by the No. 1 team in the East last timeout. And the fact that it happened inside their home arena added to the puzzle the team will try to unravel when they host the Sabres on Tuesday. On the brighter side, much-needed help could be on its way with a number of significant additions, including Mike Reilly from the Ottawa Senators and 2018 MVP winger Taylor Hall from the Sabres. Boston stays on top of the playoff line but its spot is anything but guaranteed. More grind and effort must still be employed for them to stave off any potential collapse that might lose them their ticket to the next round.
Players to watch: B. Marchand C (G 19 A 29 PTS 48), P. Bergeron C (G 16 A 19 PTS 35), D. Pastrnak RW (G 16 A 16 PTS 32).
