Buffalo Hit with Defense Injuries
Experts say that one of the factors that have placed the Buffalo Sabres as underdogs for this game is that Jake McCabe, one of their top defensemen, has made it to the injury list after undergoing thumb surgery.
McCabe was hurt in their game against the Ducks where they lost 4-3. In addition to this, Zach Bogosian, also an important asset to Buffalo’s defense had hip surgery last month. This of course, ended his participation in the 2018 NHL betting season early.
