Lansing Murphy: How do you see this game playing out tonight?

Rob Berger: It depends on which team shows up. The Sabres have looked really strong in their last three games but were pushed around in the previous games in Vegas and San Jose. Inconsistency has been the story of the season for the Sabres and playing on the road will be a real challenge.

That being said, I like the Sabres winning 4-3 with another big night from Jeff Skinner.

Jacob Strozyk: This will be a tight checking game, and if it opens up much, I’ll be surprised. After a bunch of tough chances for goals, I see a 3-2 win for Buffalo.

Lansing Murphy: Alright homers, thanks for the predictions! One last thing, give us a wing joint recommendation in Buffalo!

Jacob Strozyk: Duffs Wings in Orchard Park is always a great option, otherwise a local place in the Village of Hamburg known as Butteras may have wings that are a little bit better. I’d recommend that place highly, plus they have craft beer and fresh brick oven pizza; you can’t lose at this place.

Lansing Murphy: Well gentleman thank you for your time and the great insight on the Buffalo Sabres.
