New York Rangers vs Buffalo Sabres 3/31/2023 Tips, Free Picks and Predictions

As the regular season winds down, the New York Rangers will head to Buffalo to take on the Sabres at the KeyBank Center on Friday. The Rangers, led by the talented Artemi Panarin, suffered an unexpected loss to the Devils in their last road game. The defeat was particularly concerning given that the Rangers are set to face the Devils in the playoffs’ first round. 

The Rangers’ lone goal came from left-winger Chris Kreider, who scored his 33rd goal of the season off a power-play shot assisted by center Mika Zibanejad. Despite the loss, the Rangers have won three of their last four games and have already secured a playoff spot, currently sitting in third place in the Metropolitan Division. Panarin has been the Rangers’ standout performer this season, tallying an impressive 84 points in 74 games with 25 goals and 59 assists.   

  • The total remained UNDER in 4 of the NY Rangers’ last 5 games on the road.
  • The total stayed UNDER in 6 of NY Rangers’ last 6 games on the road against Buffalo.
  • The NY Rangers are 6-2 SU in their last 8 games with a rival in the Eastern Conference.

The Buffalo Sabres will be staying on their home ice and will try to get back from their recent home loss with a victory over the visiting New York Rangers on Friday night. Buffalo (35-31-7) lost its 11th match-up in the last 15 contests played including a 4-3 home loss in a shootout competition to the Montreal Canadiens last time out. The Sabres’ hope for the playoffs have been shining in the early part of this month but Buffalo has been losing the grip easily following a 3-9 record in their last 12 contests played. On Monday, Lukas Rousek scored one goal with one assist for the Sabres while JJ Peterka nailed a goal on a power play and tied the score at 2-2. Riley Stillman nailed his first goal of the season giving Buffalo its first lead of the match at 3-2.

The Buffalo Sabres showed a bright future ahead of them out of any NHL’s teams with the team’s high-caliber skater in Tage Thompson. Thompson has set his career high in goal scoring with 44, in assists with 45, and in points with 89 in finishing 72 games this season.    

  • The total stayed UNDER in 6 of Buffalo’s last 6 games at home against the NY Rangers.
  • Buffalo is 4-8 SU in their last 12 games against an opponent in the Eastern Conference.
  • The total went OVER in 4 of Buffalo’s last 6 games played on a Friday.

New York Rangers vs. Buffalo Sabres. The NHL Pick for this contest is New York -163. This will surely be a mismatch between these teams as the Rangers have been playing like Stanley Cup contenders just recently while the Sabres are playing like an amateur. The NY Rangers will unleash the heat from last night’s disappointing loss and dominate this game on Friday. The prediction: New York Rangers will win 6-2.
