Expect the Flyers to keep it rolling against Buffalo tonight
The Pick: Philadelphia -120 over Buffalo
If you listen to NHL coaches and analysts they always mention that when a team plays their first home game after a long road trip it's a difficult situation. That's what the Buffalo Sabres will be battling heading into tonight's game at home against Philadelphia. The Sabres had a successful west coast trip by going 2-0-1 and have only given up one goal in their last two. Although Buffalo is not scoring a multitude of goals, they are still finding ways to win. Tonight they face one of the more talented teams in the Eastern Conference in the Philadelphia Flyers who have won three games in a row and defeated Buffalo 6-3 earlier this season. The fact that Buffalo has a 6-17 record this season following a win, and have played under .500 at home this season bodes well for Philadelphia. Go with the more talented and consistent Flyers tonight at HSBC Arena.
