Atlanta Thrashers VS Buffalo Sabres match analysis

Probably, there  is still one chance for Buffalo to win points. The Sabres already won against the same opponent, 4:1 in Atlanta a week ago. It was just their first match on which they scored four or more goals. They did that again only in New Jersey winning 6:1 two matches later. However, they are not among teams with least number of scored goals, because they on almost every rest match scored two or three. On the last three matches the first period were ended with exactly two goals. They are ranking sixth with an average of 33.8 shots pucks on net per game.  Now, they have again in lineup forward Pominville who recovered from a concussion. Questionable for this match are defender Shaon Morrisonn and blueliner Andrej Sekera. Atlanta allowed the most goals in the league, even 33, but they scored almost the mostly, 29. It means that their matches are efficients. Six different players scored goals and 11 collected points for Atlanta in a 6-4 win Wednesday over the New York Rangers. Many players are in good mood to score, it could be good thing for Trashers, but experience some other teams says that it is not good, because that cannot be tendency, and the question is who will score on the next matches. But, I hope, that they can score against Buffalo in the first period, for 1:1, for example. It would be progress since they scored the first and only goal on previous match against the same opponent, two weak ago, not until the third period. Five of their nine matches ended with exactly two goals on the match. They are ranking second with 36.6 shots on net per game. Tonight they will be without injured defenders Zach Bogosian and Freddy Meyer.  How many goals these two teams can score and allow on this match is difficult to predict, but I believe that goals will be in the first period, 2 or 3 I would say, and 5 or 6  at the end. But, because of my minus I have to try with higher odds, like this one for exact number of goals in the first period. There are a many facts to believe that there will be exactly two. I did not find out bet on the exact, and If it had existed I would have tried with 1:1. But, anyway, 2:0, 1:1 or 0:2, I predict two goals in the first period. There is value on that bet.
