The Line: Buffalo Sabres / New Jersey Devils --- Over/Under: See the Latest Odds
The Devils head into Buffalo looking for their fourth win in a row and will turn to Cory Schneider to get it done as he will go up against Linas Ullmark who will be making his NHL debut.
The Devils are starting to turn things around and are actually putting some goals up on the board which has plagued them over the last two seasons and was a cause for concern heading into this year as they don't have a ton of weapons that can light the lamp. Luckily, the Devils have Schneider who we discuss in every single article about them and rightfully so as he continues to be an underrated net minder who should be considered for some big time hardware despite his team's futility. New Jersey is 3-1-1 in Schneider's starts this season and against a rookie goaltender at the other end of the rink you can expect the Devils stopper to make a statement.

The Sabres have been exciting to watch to start the season despite their futile ways but last night they were absolutely trounced by the undefeated Canadiens and now they face another stiff test less than 24 hours later. Buffalo has a ways to go before they will be back in the discussion for a playoff spot and teams have them circled on their calendar this season as they are going to be among the league's worst and without Robin Lehner it makes things that much tougher. Ullmark could prove to be a solid goaltender but in this spot after the Sabres were shelled last night and one of the best goalies in the league coming in I think this is hands down a win for the road team.
