Stephen Nover Free Tuesday NHL Play

On November 1, 2016, in Free Picks, NHL, by Stephen

Sabres plus $1.60 at Wild

Devan Dubnyk is the hottest goalie in hockey, but the Sabres are a very live ‘dog here at a great price.

It’s short revenge for the Sabres, who lost 4-0 at home against the Wild last Thursday. The fans booed the Sabres in that contest, but the score was misleading in that Buffalo outshot Minnesota, 38-18, in that loss.

Dubnyk has been brilliant. Minnesota will have a huge goalie edge. However, the Wild also are dealing with multiple injuries. They either will be short-handed tonight, or have several inexperienced fill-ins. Due to injuries, illness and salary-cap related issues only 14 players practiced for Minnesota on Monday.

Right-winger Chris Stewart is expected to shake his illness and play for the Wild tonight, but Minnesota still won’t have Zach Parise, Marco Scandella, Erik Haula and Zac Dalphe.
