Bet Tonight's Sabres vs. Rangers Game

Henrik Lundqvist will look to rebound after allowing four goals on 28 shots in that 4-3 loss to the Hurricanes on Thursday. The King fell to 33-20-7 on the year with a 2.44 goals-against average and a .921 save percentage but he's a good bet to bounce back tonight.

The Sabres will counter with Chad Johnson, who is coming off a 25-save, 4-1 win over Toronto on Thursday night and is now 20-16-4 on the year with a 2.38 goals-against-average to go along with his .919 save percentage. He's been steady in net for Buffalo, but New York boasts more overall talent than Toronto so Johnson will certainly be tested tonight.
