Bet Tonight's Sabres vs. Penguins Game

Marc-Andre Fleury is coming off back-to-back starts over the weekend in which he allowed four goals in two victories. He stopped 25 of 27 shots in Sunday's 3-2 overtime win over the Rangers and is now 34-17-6 on the season and owns a 2.29 goals-against-average to go along with his .921 save percentage.

As of this writing Chad Johnson is listed as the starter for Buffalo but the Sabres played in Detroit on Monday night so this isn't set in stone. Johnson made 26 saves in a 3-2 loss to the Red Wings and has been serviceable of late. He's 19-16-3 and owns a respectable 2.38 GAA and a .919 save percentage.
