The Buffalo Sabres and the Carolina Hurricanes will both be gunning for a victory on Friday when they meet at PNC Arena.

ABOUT THE SABRES (16-16-9): Anders Nilsson could make his second start in two nights – and third straight overall – as Robin Lehner did not accompany the team on its brief two-game road trip due to a bout with the flu. Linus Ullmark, who went 8-10-2 as a rookie last season, is serving as Nilsson’s backup while Lehner recovers. Friday may mark the return of Tyler Ennis, who has not played since Nov. 7 due to groin surgery.

ABOUT THE HURRICANES (19-15-7): Elias Lindholm enters Friday with a season high-tying four-game point streak after notching an assist against the Blue Jackets in his return to the lineup. The 22-year-old Swedish center, who had missed five games with an upper-body injury, has collected two goals and three assists during his run. Andrej Nestrasil, who has recorded a goal and four assists in 18 contests this season, cleared waivers and was assigned to Charlotte of the American Hockey League earlier this week.

gtbets-sportsbook currently has the Hurricanes listed as 200-moneyline favorites versus the Sabres, while the game’s total is sitting at 5  

The Carolina Hurricanes have been one of the NHL’s best home teams over the last two months and aim to continue their dominance at PNC Arena when they continue a four-game homestand against the Buffalo Sabres on Friday. Carolina won its final five home contests in November and proceeded to go 5-0-1 in its own building in December before beginning this month with a 3-1 loss to visiting New Jersey.

The Hurricanes have not let that setback derail them, however, as 19-year-old rookie Sebastian Aho capped his second career two-goal performance with the overtime winner against Boston in the opener of the homestand on Sunday before Victor Rask and Jeff Skinner each recorded a tally and two assists in a 5-3 triumph over Columbus two nights later. Buffalo had its month-opening four-game point streak halted Thursday as it dropped a 4-2 decision at Tampa Bay. Evander Kane scored his 11th goal to pull within one of Kyle Okposo for the team lead while power-play specialist Matt Moulson netted his ninth tally overall this season but just second at even strength. Carolina is looking to complete a sweep of the three-game season series after limiting Buffalo to a total of two goals in a pair of victories last month.

Last time out for Carolina, they were a 5-3 winner as they battled the Blue Jackets at home. Moneyline bettors who got the Hurricanes at -126 were rewarded, while the 8 combined goals moved the game OVER for totals bettors.

Last time out for Buffalo, they were a 4-2 loser as they battled the Lightning on the road. Moneyline bettors who got the Lightning at -162 were rewarded, while the 6 combined goals moved the game OVER for totals bettors.
