Buffalo Sabres vs New York Rangers 03/22/2021 Betting Odds:
The Buffalo Sabres could not break the spell. Their 4-1 loss to the Boston Bruins marked the 13th straight loss that buried them deeper at the bottom of the standings. The team is still in search of answers to their horrendous season. One major change that was already brought to action was the firing of Ralph Krueger as head coach of the squad. Don Granato took the vacant spot on an interim basis, but it appears that solving the team’s problem requires more than just a coaching change. A major overhaul is necessary in order for them to regain the identity of being a contender. It’s almost close to impossible that Buffalo could turn things around and change its fate in the second half of the season. But for the sake of having a respectable exit, the Sabres are still expected to show up and bring their 100% in their remaining games.
Players to watch: B. Marchand C (G 12, A 22, PTS 34), D. Pastrnak RW (G 14, A 12, PTS 26), P. Bergeron C (G 10, A 15, PTS 25).
New York Rangers
The Rangers may be outside of the playoff line right now, but that does not mean they are already out of contention. After alternating wins and losses in their last five games, New York will be aiming to seize its first win streak when they take on the reeling Sabres at MSG. It’s a one-night home ice opportunity that the team must take advantage. With still six points separating them and the final playoff spot, the Sabres would definitely exploit the chance of bringing themselves closer by taking the easy task of defeating the worst team in the NHL. Their push to make it to the postseason has just gotten a major boost with Mika Zibanejad slowly rediscovering his lethal form after a slow start of the season. After a series of setbacks, including a COVID-19 battle, Zibanejad is now starting to make some noise to the delight of the rest of the Rangers. The team expects him to sustain his exploits on Monday night with the rest vowing to provide support to ensure the victory.
Players to watch: P. Buchnevich RW (G 10, A 17, PTS 28), A. Panarin LW (G 8, A 17, PTS 25), R. Strome C (G 10, A 14, PTS 24).

Sabres vs Rangers Betting Picks
The Rangers will win and there will be no doubt about it. Wth Mika Zibanejad nearly back at his ultimate form, the chance for the Sabres to even make the match up interesting is already thrown out of the window even before the puck is dropped. Backing Buffalo at value prices in the NHL Betting Odds market is not an option worth taking. The Rangers will impose their dominance as the Sabres are set to be sent to their 14th straight defeat.
Score Prediction: Sabres 1, Rangers 6.
