Winnipeg Jets Vs Buffalo Sabres responsible, two-way players and they’ll likely go head-to-head on Tuesday. O’Reilly snapped a five-game goal-less drought on Sunday, but has only four goals and eight points in 20 games against the Jets during his career. Little has a goal and three points during his past four games, but 10 goals and 23 points in 27 Winnipeg Jets Vs Buffalo Sabres games against the Sabres.
Keys to the game Picking up the slack
Winnipeg Jets Vs Buffalo Sabres Injuries are part of the game and despite being without top-line centre Mark Scheifele, who is expected to be out for six-to-eight weeks with a suspected shoulder injury, for the past four games and change, the Jets have gone 4-0-1 since the Christmas break. Strong goaltending and a balanced attack have been the keys to this recent stretch for the Jets.
Offence from the back end
With their top six blue-liners back together for the first time in 24 games on Sunday, the Jets got three assists from D-men Tyler Myers (two) and Jacob Trouba (one). The Jets also got a pair of goals from defencemen in Friday’s win over the Sabres, as Trouba and Dustin Byfuglien found the back of the net.
PK on the rise
Winnipeg Jets Vs Buffalo Sabres The Jets penalty kill has been an area of concern for the past few seasons, but a slow start seems like a distant memory. By allowing only one goal during the past six games while shorthanded, the Jets efficiency has increased to 81.5% on the season, which moved them to 12th in the NHL in that department. The Sabres feature the worst power play in the NHL.
Making it count
Winnipeg Jets Vs Buffalo Sabres Although he was limited to fewer than five minutes of ice time on Sunday, Jets winger Marko Dano scored for the second time in four games after missing 30 in a row as a healthy scratch. Dano’s nifty redirection proved to be the game-winner in a 4-1 victory, but he was left out of the rotation as head coach Paul Maurice cut down to three lines for the final 10 minutes.
Kane is able
Winnipeg Jets Vs Buffalo Sabres Former Jets left-winger Evander Kane has put together an impressive season for the Sabres, chipping in 16 goals (to lead his team) and 35 points (second on team and one point behind Jack Eichel) in 42 games. Kane has only one assist in four games against the Jets, but is going to be one of the most sought-after power forwards prior to the NHL trade deadline.

Buffalo Sabres vs. Winnipeg Jets – 1/9/18 NHL Pick, Odds, and Prediction
USA TODAY Sports
The Central leading Jets received a pair of goals from Mathieu Perreault with Mark Dano and Matt Hendricks also reaching the scoring column. Andrew Copp also provided Winnipeg with a pair of assists and that was more then enough support for Connor Hellebuyck who recorded 31 saves while Martin Jones stopped 26 shots in the loss.
With ten wins at this point in the season the Buffalo Sabres are last in the Atlantic standings and realistically out of the postseason. The Sabres have been struggling to score and keep the puck out of their own net and the result has been four consecutive defeats following a 4-1 loss at the Philadelphia Flyers on Sunday.
Winnipeg Jets Vs Buffalo Sabres The Sabres took a 1-0 lead in the second on Ryan O’Reilly’s goal with the man advantage but that was the only highlight. Sean Couturier topped the Philadelphia attack with a pair of goals with Ivan Provorov and Shayne Gostisbehere also lighting the lamp. Jakub Voracek posted two assists and the Flyers received 30 saves from Michal Neuvirth while Robin Lehner recorded 25 stops in taking the loss.
Over is 4-0 in Jets last 4 vs. a team with a losing record and under is 3-0-1 in Jets last 4 games playing on 1 days rest and under is 4-0-1 in Jets last 5 games following a win. Sabres are 0-4 in their last 4 vs. Western Conference and over is 3-0-1 in Sabres last 4 following a loss of 3 or more goals and under is 5-1 in Sabres last 6 games playing on 1 days rest. Jets are 1-4 in the last 5 meetings and over is 4-1-1 in the last 6 meetings and home team is 13-6 in the last 19 meetings.
Buffalo has enjoyed the bulk of the success in this matchup but Winnipeg is streaking and are trying to win the Central so I like them…
