Tips For Betting On Senators Sabres – Injury-Riddled Senators Continue Finding Ways To Win Games

Posted by Don Melrose on 3/12/2013 8:07:48 PM

The Ottawa Senators have lost a Norris trophy-winning defenseman in Erik Karlsson, an All-Star center in Jason Spezza, and an early Vezina trophy nominee in Craig Anderson through the first two months of the regular season. That hasn’t slowed them down one bit. Ottawa has gone 5-2-3 over its last 10 games to keep pace with the other playoffs teams in the Eastern Conference, and will look to extend their recent sports betting hot streak when they visit the Buffalo Sabres this Saturday.

The Sabres haven’t had nearly the same level of injury problems this season, but remained 10 points back of the Senators heading in to this week. Buffalo’s struggles have been well documented and led to the dismissal of head coach Lindy Ruff earlier this season, but that hasn’t changed anything as they continue to struggle under Ron Rolston.

Ottawa did welcome back Guillaume Lattendresse to the lineup earlier this week, and he made an immediate online beting impact with a goal in an overtime loss to the Boston Bruins on Monday night. With Spezza and Anderson close to returning, the Senators are going to continue to try and grind out points anyway they can, and their ability to limit the opposition’s scoring chances has been key. The Senators rank first in the NHL in goals per game allowed, and their second-ranked penalty kill has played a major role in that. Ottawa has also received big efforts from young centers Kyle Turris and Zach Smith, who have stepped up to fill the void left by Spezza.

The Sabres haven’t lost nearly as many man games as the Senators so far this year, but even with a healthy team they have struggled to maintain any level of consistency, and that includes at home where the team entered this week at two games below .500. Buffalo ranks 22nd in the league in goals per game, and just 26th in goals per game allowed thanks to one of the worst penalty-killing units in the NHL. The Sabres’ powerplay is the worst in the league, converting at just 11.8-percent, and it’s hard to win games when you aren’t getting the job done at either ends of the ice at even strength or on special teams.

NHL Betting Preview: Outlook & Pick

Injuries to their superstar players haven’t kept the Senators from winning games to this point, and there is nothing about this matchup that suggests that will change. Buffalo has been awful at home this season and continues to find ways to lose games, so don’t expect anything less when a hard-working team like Ottawa comes to town looking to grind out another big win in anticipation of both Spezza and Anderson returning to the lineup.
