It's one of the most lopsided spreads you'll see in any hockey game but the thing is that it's completely justified. We've got a really good San Jose Sharks team that's very good on home ice taking on arguably the worst team in hockey that just keeps finding ways to lose. There's really only one way to play this game and that's the way we're going to go here but it still makes sense. Buffalo actually took a one goal lead against the Anaheim Ducks the other night before allowing the Ducks to score five straight goals en route to a 6-3 win. Jhonas Enroth suffered the same fate that Ryan Miller has on many occassions this year and somewhere Thomas Vanek must be smiling that he managed to get out as soon as he did. This might get ugly on Tuesday night because the Sabres just aren't even in San Jose's league. The only chance for the Sabres is if the Sharks take this game lightly but even then it could still be a multiple goal defeat, that's just how bad Buffalo is this year.
