The NHL brings more action on Wednesday evening as the Ottawa Senators will face the Buffalo Sabres at KeyBank Center in Buffalo, New York. The Senators will head into this game after a 6-5 home loss to the Jets, while the Sabres were beaten 5-2 by the Maple Leafs in Toronto.

Buffalo Sabres Form
The Buffalo Sabres well fell victims to a determined Maple Leafs team on Monday. The Sabres have now lost six of their last eight games. Buffalo does not have much to play for in the league except for pride and prestige. Their aim to start the rebuilding process as soon as the season ends and their eyes are already on the next season.
On the offensive side of the game, The Sabres have been very poor as they come in ranked 31st in the league in scoring at 2.38 goals per game, converting on 18.7% of their chances. At the defensive part of the game, their stats are poor as they are ranked 29th in goals allowed, letting in an average of 3.33 goals per game, allowing the opposing teams to score on 22.4% of their chances.
This season, Ottawa and Buffalo are two worst teams in the Eastern Conference. Both teams had a poor season, but this clash has a good chance of being an entertaining encounter
The Senators have been poor in scoring goals this season. On the other side, the Sabres have a poor defensive record this year, especially in their last 10 games. However, Buffalo scored 15 goals over their last four games. I think that this will be a very tight game, with the Sabres coming out on top.
