Somebody wake me when this one is done.
NJ: Jaromir Jagr is 41 years old and leading goal scorer. Come on now, you can't have a 41 year old being your leading goal scorer, especially when he only scored 13 goals. NJ has an average power play and a strong penalty kill unit. And they are the "better?"
offensive playing a back to back.
BUF: Now, while it is bad to have a 41 year old guy leading the team with 13 goals, its not a hell of a lot better to have a 24 year old being your leading scorer with 8 (EIGHT!) goals! BUF has a weak power play and an average penalty kill unit.
Two good goalies going in this one.
The last time these two teams met it was a 1-0 snoozer. Don't get me wrong, I HATE betting Unders, especially under 5. But, I just feel like the ceiling for one of these clubs is 1 goal, that means the other side would have to score 5 for me to lose. The last time one of these teams put up a 5 spot in this series was November 16, 2011. Maybe we'll see an offensive "explosion" tonight of 3-1. It might happen, but I think I'm that 3-1 snoozer is a lot more likely.
