Analysis
NHL Wednesday 10* Top Play OVER 6.5 in Buffalo Sabres vs St Louis Blues @ 7:05 ET - I know Binnington has been playing very well for the Blues and he is likely to be in goal for St Louis tonight. However, this is still a tough road venue and Buffalo enters this game with a lot of confidence off last night's 7-2 win at Montreal. The trouble for the Sabres is because this is a back to back and that means, with Eric Comrie out with injury, Ukko-Pekka Luukkonen is likely to be in goal. He has very little NHL experience and has lost 11 of 14 starts and he gave up 4 goals in his only start this season! The fact he has to face the red hot Blues is a tough draw for Ukko-Pekka Luukkonen as St Louis has averaged scoring 4 goals per game during their red hot 7-game winning streak. As for the Sabres, Buffalo had allowed about 4 goals per game during the losing streak of 8 games that preceded last night's win Also, prior to the 8-game losing streak, the Sabres had a 3 game winning streak in which the games averaged 9 goals apiece. Last night's win for Buffalo, coincidentally, totaled 9 goals! Look for this one to get at least 7 as Sabres can be tough at home but Blues so red hot right now and should enjoy continued success against the #3 goalie for the Sabres. 10* OVER 6.5 in Buffalo
