Sabres at Devils: Projected starting goalies

Jonas Johansson (0-4-1, 3.91 GAA, .883 SV%) vs. Mackenzie Blackwood (5-8-1, 3.12 GAA, .900 SV%)

Johansson has made six appearances this season, and he has allowed four or more goals in each of his past four starts. He hasn’t yet faced the Devils and has been limited to three appearances against the Philadelphia Flyers, two against the New York Islanders and one against the Pittsburgh Penguins. This projects as his easiest assignment.

Blackwood has dropped six consecutive starts, with his last victory coming Feb. 25 in a 4-3 overtime win at Buffalo. He is also 1-2-0 with a 3.04 GAA and .907 SV% in three starts against the Sabres this season. He is better on the road than at home, too, going 1-7-1 with a 3.20 GAA and .887 SV% in nine home games, while going 4-1-0 with a 2.99 GAA and .917 SV% in five road games.

Sabres at Devils: Odds, lines, predictions and picks

Prediction

Devils 3, Sabres 2

Money line (ML)

The DEVILS (-165) are worth playing lightly, as they’re catching a poor Sabres team coming off a 6-0 dusting on home ice against the Washington Capitals Monday. The Sabres have been shut out in back-to-back games, so the Devils are catching them at a really good time.

Against the spread (ATS)

Neither of these teams are playing well enough to trust on the puck line. I expect the Devils -1.5 (+165) to get by in this one, but they are 0-2-2 in their past four games.

Each of their past three wins since Feb. 18 was by one goal. PASS.

Over/Under (O/U)

UNDER 5.5 (-105) is the way to go, as the Sabres cannot buy a goal lately. The Under also hit in the past two games for the Devils, and they are averaging just 2.48 goals per game to rank 26th in the NHL. Their power play is also just 28th, which is bad news for the offense.
