The Detroit Red Wings have been faded material on the road for years, and their hit-or-miss efforts this season generally don’t inspire much confidence. The Buffalo Sabers are off to one of their best starts in recent memory, and their defensive effort is encouraging. The Sabers are enjoying one of their best stretches in quite some time. This line is soft. I’ll be rooting for the Sabers at home.
