Tampa Bay vs Buffalo: NHL Playoff Bound Lightning Host Cellar Dwelling Sabres

Tampa Bay vs Buffalo: NHL Playoff Bound Lightning Host Cellar Dwelling Sabres
As the dust settles on the National Hockey League trade deadline day, the race to the Stanley Cup Playoffs is now officially in full gear. Tampa Bay is chasing Montreal for top spot in the Eastern Conference while Buffalo is in a battle with Edmonton for ownership of the NHL cellar. The Lightning and Sabres hit the ice at 7:30 PM ET on March 3, 2015, at Amalie Arena in Tampa, FL. Back the Bolts!

Tampa Bay Lightning: Bolts continue to beat up on Buffalo

Sitting fourth overall in the NHL Eastern Conference, five points behind Montreal, the Lightning look to continue their dominance over the Sabres tonight. The Bolts have beat up on Buffalo in their last three meetings, all Lightning victories, by a combined 12-2 margin. Tampa Bay closed out a rather lackluster 6-5-2 February with a 4-3 loss to Florida on Sunday. Ben Bishop gets the start in goal and he has allowed one goal on 34 shots in two wins (5-1 and 2-1) versus the Sabres this season.

Jump on a plane to Florida and you could be a candidate to start in net for Buffalo tonight

Sellers at the NHL trade deadline, Buffalo has two new goaltenders on their roster as Anders Lindback and Chad Johnson have replaced Michal Neuvirth and Jhonas Enroth. Neuvirth was one of very few bright lights in Buffalo as he was almost single handily winning contests for the Sabres. Lindback will get the call for Buffalo and it will be his first action since he lost 3-2 to his new team as a member of the Stars back on February 7, 2015. Buffalo owns a -89 GF/GA differential.

Sabers vs Lightning NHL Prediction: Buffalo’s list of woes is a long one and includes being last in almost every major NHL offensive category. The Sabres are two loses from playoff elimination and we can’t see them having much jump in sunny Florida. We are laying the pucks being offered on the betting board at SportsInteraction and backing the Bolts with a 400 unit wager tonight.
