There will be NHL action at the KeyBank Center on Tuesday evening, as the Buffalo Sabres welcome the Vancouver Canucks. Both sides will be looking to return to winning ways in the NHL, as both have been on long losing streaks coming into this fixture.
Before Betting On Canucks vs Sabres
This could be a pivotal game for both the Canucks and Sabres, as both sides come into this fixture off the back of long losing runs in the NHL. The pressure is likely to be mostly on the Sabres, as they have home advantage. They will be looking to end a run of five straight defeats in the NHL, while they have recorded just three wins in their previous ten games.
At present, they sit second bottom in the Atlantic Division standings, but they could rise up the standings should they turn their form around. A fifth straight defeat in the NHL was inflicted in their previous fixture over the weekend, as they were easily beaten by the Boston Bruins. The Sabres took the lead in the first period, but they conceded three across the final two periods.
The Vancouver Canucks come into this fixture in a very similar position, as they also sit second bottom in their division. They have won just four games from 16 in the NHL this season, and only the Anaheim Ducks have picked up fewer points in the Pacific Division.
The Canucks come into this fixture after being beaten in their previous three games, while they have suffered five defeats in regulation in their last ten games. Their most recent defeat was also suffered against the Boston Bruins over the weekend, as they were beaten 5-2 at TD Garden.
Canucks vs Sabres NHL Offshore Odds
This is a difficult game to judge, but we will be taking a chance on the Sabres. They have won their previous three against the Canucks, and we could see them ending their losing run at home on Tuesday.
