Washington @ Buffalo | 01/15 | 12:00 AM UTC

Washington -135

WIN

Ilya Samsonov was 16-6-2 last season with a 2.55 GAA and .913 save percentage before he injured for the season. Linus Ullmark was 17-14-3 last season with a 2.69 GAA and .915 save percentage, but the Caps have won 12 of their last 17 games straight up against the Sabres. Jack Eichel has been kept in check against the Caps with only three goals and five assists in 11 career games, and the Caps core has been together longer so no preseason should benefit them.

Washington -135

WIN

The last time Buffalo played a game was roughly 10 months ago against these Capitals. The Sabres won 3-2 in a shootout despite getting outshot 35-26 on March 9, 2020. Washington is loaded on offense this season and now on defense with the additions of Zdeno Chara and Justin Schultz. I love Ilya Samsonov in goal full time after going 16-6 with a 2.55 GAA last season. Washington is by far the more talented team and has won 12 of the past 16 vs. Buffalo.
