The Buffalo Sabres and the Ottawa Senators meet in NHL action from the Canadian Tire Center on Tuesday night.

The Buffalo Sabres will look to build on their 6-3 win over Philadelphia last time out. Tage Thompson leads the Sabres in scoring with 28 points including 14 goals while Rasmus Dahlin also has 28 points with a team-high 21 assists and Jeff Skinner has 27 points with a team-high 16 goals. Kyle Okposo also has 23 points with 7 goals and 16 apples this season. Dustin Tokarski’s gone 4-5-3 with a 3.28 GAA and a .903 save percentage in goal for Buffalo while Ukko-Pekka Luokkonen is 2-5-2 with a 2.74 GAA and a .917 save percentage and Aaron Dell is 1-7-1 with a 3.92 GAA and an .893 save percentage.

The Ottawa Senators will look to add to a 2-1 win over Columbus in their last game. Drake Batherson leads the Sens in scoring with 33 points including a team-high 21 assists while Josh Norris has 26 points with a team-high 18 goals and 8 assists. Brady Tkachuk has 27 points with 12 goals and 14 assists as well this season. Filip Gustavsson’s gone 3-8-1 in goal for Ottawa, putting up a 3.80 GAA and an .893 save percentage while Anton Forsberg is 7-6-1 with a 3.01 GAA and a .912 save percentage.

Buffalo is 1-4 in their last 5 games played on 2 day’s rest and 2-7 in their last 9 games after scoring 5 goals or more in the previous game while the under is 6-1-1 in their last 8 road games. Ottawa is 1-5 in their last 6 games as a favorite and 1-4 in their last 5 games as a home favorite while the under is 5-1 in their last 6 division games.

I get why you’d look at Ottawa here as the knock on Buffalo is that they can’t win on the road. However, the Sabres just beat Ottawa in their own arena not long ago, and I’m not eager to back Ottawa at this price as the Sens just aren’t world-beaters and don’t win consistently enough to justify this price, even against Buffalo. Give me the Sabres and the plus money here.
