Buffalo Sabres

Can the Buffalo Sabres Shutdown Mcdavid and the Red-Hot Oilers?

As the red-hot Oilers head to Buffalo to take on the Sabres, the question to ask yourself is: “Can the Sabres shut down Mcdavid?”

Well, the Oilers are on the second game of a back-to-back and don’t have their starter in the net. That is a good sign for Sabres fans as they are on their first game of a back-to-back as they face the Edmonton Oilers and the Toronto Maple Leafs.

The Oilers are coming off of a win in Boston with a game that they had been trailing for the most part, which means they are going to put up a fight against Buffalo on Friday at 7 pm EST.

As for the Sabres, they are coming off of a 5-3 loss to the Capitals on Monday and are looking for a bounce-back game as they have dropped four of their last five games and are currently in the middle of a four-game losing skid. They are now in sixth place in the Atlantic.

With Skinner in the net for the Oilers and Tokarski in the net for the Sabres, these two teams are both going to be putting up a battle, as the Sabres who haven’t won since the 4-3 overtime victory over the Ducks on October 28. While the Oilers have won quite a bit lately they didn’t play a great game against the Bruins. They were trailing basically the whole game, their defense didn’t play the greatest, and they gave the puck away way too often. We all know that they are going to bounce back.

I think that the Sabres can shutdown the Oilers down if they play to their strengths. Like they were when they were 5-1-0 at the beginning of the season. If they don’t play t their strengths they could find themselves in the middle of a five-game losing streak.

Who do you think is going to win? The Oilers or the Sabres? Can the Sabres shut down Mcdavid and Draisaitl?
