(The Spread) – Will the Philadelphia Flyers be able to solve goaltender Ryan Miller and the Buffalo Sabres Saturday night?

Oddsmakers from online sports book SBGGLOBAL.com have made the Flyers -165 favorites in the contest, while the Sabres are listed as +145 underdogs on the money line. The over/under total for this game is currently 5 goals. Play begins at 5:05PM EST.

Miller was stellar in net in Game One of the playoff series as he stopped all 35 shots taken against him by Philadelphia as Buffalo posted a 1-0 shutout. According to the latest NHL trends, Philadelphia is 7-6-0 straight up against Buffalo over the last three seasons. Ten of 13 games in this series have gone during the last three seasons.

Claude Giroux led the Flyers in scoring during the regular season with 25 goals and 51 assists. Buffalo's Patrick Kaleta, who only recorded four goals during the regular season, scored the lone goal in the third period to send the Sabres to the victory.

NHL Free Pick: It was certainly no fluke that the Buffalo Sabres won Game 1. They have played some of the best hockey in the NHL since the end of the December and have the record to prove it. Throw in Miller, who has played the role of hero for the United States during the 2010 Olympics, and you have a team capable of beating any team on any given night. That includes the defending Eastern Conference champions. I have seen many teams get frustrated in the past during the NHL Playoffs when an opposing goalie stands on his head in the opener of the series. I'm getting the feeling this could be heading down that track. I see a lot of value in the Buffalo Sabres +145 here and I am going with them.
