The New Jersey Devils go on the road to oppose the Buffalo Sabres in Tuesday NHL action.

The New Jersey Devils were denied consecutive victories in a 3-2 loss at Vegas on Sunday. New Jersey took a 2-0 lead in the first on goals from Nico Hischier and Ben Lovejoy with Keith Kinkaid allowing three goals on 28 shots to get the loss. 

Ryan Reaves scored in the first for Vegas with Brayden McNabb and Max Pacioretty supplying second period markers. Malcolm Subban picked up the win for the Golden Knights with a 36 save performance.

The Buffalo Sabres have been in a bit of a funk with losses in five of seven after dropping a 2-1 decision at Boston on Saturday. The Sabres only goal was an unassisted tally by Rasmus Ristolainen in the third with Linus Ullmark allowing two goals on 41 shots to get the loss.

The Bruins received scoring from Chris Wagner in the first and David Backes in the second while Tuukka Rask picked up an assist and made 31 stops to pick up the win.

Over is 3-0-1 in Devils last 4 Tuesday games and under is 7-1 in Devils last 8 games playing on 1 days rest and over is 6-1 in Devils last 7 vs. Atlantic. Over is 8-0-1 in Sabres last 9 vs. a team with a winning % below .400 and under is 6-1 in Sabres last 7 overall and Sabres are 2-10 in their last 12 vs. Eastern Conference. Devils are 6-0 in the last 6 meetings in Buffalo and Devils are 10-2 in the last 12 meetings and road team is 8-2 in the last 10 meetings. 

New Jersey isn’t a great team but with both sides struggling I wouldn’t pay the juice…

New Jersey +112

I have been a sports fan since I was old enough to pick up a ball and have always been drawn to competition. I don't participate in sporting events any longer but I do like to provide my opinion on games and writing gives me that outlet. I won't always be right but I always put 100% in to every article I do whether it's the World Series or an 0-10 college football team. Mitch shares that same passion and allows me to express myself in my own way.
