Buffalo Sabres vs St. Louis Blues 02/25/2022 Betting Odds:
Pre-match predictions had believed the Sabres could easily dispatch the Montreal Canadiens. But it failed to come into fruition; instead they were demolished by the team with the worst record in the league. Coach Don Granato lamented his team’s poor start against the Canadiens. According to him, the Sabres were “sloppy” and that their lack of effort to begin the game has cost them the entire game. The current four-game slide has kept the Sabres from making headways as they are stuck at the second to the last spot in the Atlantic Division. As expected, Granato and the rest of his squad are huge underdogs at home against the Blues. It may be a long shot to win the game, but Buffalo would at least want to try to make the game competitive as much as possible.
Players to watch: T. Thompson RW (G 20, A 18, PTS 38), J. Skinner LW (G 20, A 16, PTS 36), R. Dahlin D (G 8, A 25, PTS 33).
St. Louis Blues
The Blues are back in their old form after absorbing one their most stunning defeats of the season. Save for the upset loss to the Canadiens, St. Louis actually looked formidable during their last four-game road trip as they scored wins against Ottawa, Toronto, and Philadelphia. They will be back home for a single game against the Sabres before hitting the road anew for a five-game swing. For the Blues, facing a team in the middle of a slide is a crucial opportunity they must not squander. A win will stretch the team’s winning streak to three, which could put them at a better position to play in the grueling stretch away from home.
Players to watch: V. Tarasenko RW (G 19, A 27, PTS 46), J. Kyrou C (G 18, A 27, PTS 45), P. Buchnevich LW (G 18, A 27, PTS 45).
