Bet Tonight's Sabres vs. Red Wings Game

Petr Mrazek is coming off a rough outing in which he was pulled in the second period of Saturday's 7-2 loss to the Penguins. He allowed four goals on 27 shots in just over 35 minutes of play and now has just one win in his last four decisions. Mrazek's record now stands at 27-16-6 this season and owns a 2.31 GAA and a .921 save percentage.

Things went much better for Buffalo's Chad Johnson on Saturday. He allowed two goals in the first period to the Winnipeg Jets but then was perfect the rest of the way as the Sabres won, 3-2. The 29-year-old is now 19-5-3 on the year with a 2.39 goals-against-average and owns a .918 save percentage.

Detroit is in a tailspin as it desperately tries to stay in playoff contention. But the Red Wings are just 1-4 in their last five games coming off a loss of three or more goals and they're 2-5 in their last seven when their opponent allows two goals or less in their previous game. Johnson enters play as the hotter goaltender and thus, Buffalo is worth a play as a heavy dog.
