The Sabres enter action with an 0-3-1 record after a 3-2 loss at the Sharks on Thursday. The Kings are 2-0-1 following a 4-3 overtime loss at home to the Flames on Wednesday. The home team won the two meetings last year and the over-under went 1-1.

In Thursday's loss, Jason Pominville scored both goals for Buffalo. Jack Eichel and Zemgus Girgensons each had two assists. Robin Lehner made 23 saves on 26 shots to take the loss.

Los Angeles was paced by Dustin Brown in Wednesday's loss as he contributed two goals and an assist. Anze Kopitar had a goal and an assist. Jonathan Quick allowed four goals on 37 shots in the losing effort.

Bet on Sabres vs. Kings

Quick tends to bounce back quickly from his poorer efforts and the Kings are typically strong defensively. Buffalo can generate offense through Eichel, but he is still lacking in help around him and it's a team that can be shut down on any given night. This seems like one of those nights. Expect Los Angeles to get a lead and then sit on it in a defensive game.
