Ben Bishop will start Tuesday night against Buffalo. Bishop was selected as the NHL's second star of the week for the period ending March 10. He posted a pair of shutouts, while stopping all 59 shots he faced. Bishop has a mark of 22-14-2 this season with a 2.13 goals-against average and .930 save percentage.

Buffalo Sabres Fantasy Spin

Jack Eichel has been suspended for two games for an illegal check to the head on Colorado's Carl Soderberg. Eichel got a two-minute penalty on Saturday for the hit. He won't get to play in Buffalo's upcoming two-game homestand, but he will be eligible to return on March 16 versus Carolina.

Betting Trends


The Stars are 4-1 in their last five games overall.


The Sabres have not fared well as an underdog recently, posting a 1-5 record over their last six games in that spot. They’re also winless over their last four games.

Our Prediction

The Sabres have been forced to shuffle their lines with the suspension of Echel. Casey Mittlestadt skated on the team’s top line at practice on Monday and will be on the first unit between Jeff Skinner and Jason Pominville. Buffalo also called up Alexander Nylander from the minors on Sunday and will make his debut tonight on the second line. This much reshuffling offers good value if you jump on the Stars now. Dallas’ odds jumped from -130 late Monday night to -141 on Tuesday morning so act fast. The Stars are a perfect 4-0 in their last four games versus the Sabres while the favorite has also cashed in the previous four meetings between these two teams.

Tuesday NHL Prediction: Dallas Stars -141
