Devils at Sabres: Projected starting goalies
Scott Wedgewood (1-3-0, 2.80 GAA, .900 SV%, 1 SO) at Carter Hutton (1-2-0, 2.65 GAA, .899 SV%)
Wedgewood held his own in a 4-3 shootout loss to these same Sabres Saturday afternoon. He is expected to get the start yet again, as G Mackenzie Blackwood didn’t travel with the team as he remains on the COVID-19 list.
Hutton is expected to be ready to go after missing time due to an undisclosed injury – he last played Jan. 19. If not, it will be G Linus Ullmark again. Ullmark stopped 31 of 34 shots and all three shootout attempts in Saturday’s win against the Devs.

Devils at Sabres: Odds, lines, predictions and picks
Devils 3, Sabres 2
Money line (ML)
The DEVILS (+140) came up short Saturday, but they should be able to cash in the second end of this double dip. While New Jersey is 0-4 in the past four trips to Buffalo, the Devils have connected in 12 of the previous 17 meetings in this series.
Against the spread (ATS)
The Devils +1.5 (-200) will cost you two times your potential return. There is no reason for the insurance, especially at this price. Just take the Devils on the money line instead. PASS.
UNDER 5.5 (-110) is the way to go. The Devils enter with the Under hitting in six of the past eight games as road underdogs, and they’re 7-3 in the past 10 on the road dating back to last season. The Under has cashed in five in a row for Buffalo following a victory, while going 5-2-1 in its past eight at home. The Under is also 4-1 in the past five in the second end of a back-to-back situation. With an early-afternoon puck drop following a day game, the legs should be awfully sluggish, too.
