Free NHL Pick For March 12: Canadiens vs. Sabres
Montreal Canadiens (2.33) vs. Toronto Maple Leafs (1.68); Total 5
7:05 PM ET starting time for this game.
Let’s start with the Canadiens. They are coming off a 4-1 win over the Canucks on Saturday night and have now won 2 games in a row. Budaj was in goal on Saturday and will get the start tonight in Buffalo too. The return of Markov to the lineup seems to have provided a spark but it is too little way too late for the Habs this season. As for the Sabres they still have playoff aspirations. They are tied for 9th in the East with the Jets just 4 points behind the Capitals. The Sabres are coming off a big 4-3 win over the Senators in Ottawa and look to keep it going at home tonight. These two teams last met in Buffalo on Feb 17 and the Habs escaped with a 4-3 win. That loss by the Sabres had them sitting dead last in the East. Since then the Sabres have gone 8-2-1 and have themselves in playoff contention.

Canadiens vs. Sabres Prediction:
I will be backing the Sabres in this game. Ryan Miller is definitely playing much better than he was at the start of the season. In his last 10 starts Miller is 8-1-1 with a 1.76 GAA. And there is no Carey Price is goal for Montreal. Budaj one his last start but that is just 1 game. This is a tough scheduling spot for Montreal as well. They played just 2 nights ago in Vancouver and have to make the long trip back East with just one off day in between. The schedule most certainly favors the Sabres in this game. Expect a much fresher Buffalo team compared to Montreal. Yes, Montreal one the last meeting between these teams but Buffalo has still won 6 of the past 7 meeting with Montreal. I like the Sabres chances in this game. Currently the Sabres are a 1.68 (or -147) favorite at 5 Dimes Sportsbook. Or for a better price we can play the Buffalo Sabres in regulation time (-0.5 puck) for 2.11 (or +111) at 5 Dimes Sportsbook. I will play a half a unit on each of these outcomes above.
