Buffalo -½ +220 over SAN JOSE

10:38 PM EST. Several members of the San Jose Sharks organization have been placed in the COVID protocol according to Curtis Pashelka of the Mercury News. Head coach Bob Boughner is also out tonight, leaving the team to assistant John MacLean in his absence. Seven players have been put in the protocol; Andrew Cogliano, Jonathan Dahlen, Erik Karlsson, Jacob Middleton, Matthew Nieto, Radim Simek and Marc-Edouard Vlasic will all not play tonight. Additionally, San Jose Barracuda player Noah Gregor has also been placed in the protocol.

In the meantime, the team has recalled Nicolas Meloche, Ryan Merkley, Nicholas Merkley, John Leonard, and Jaycob Megna to fill out the roster for this evening. Kevin Kurz of The Athletic tweets that there are ongoing discussions with the league, but for now the game is still scheduled to proceed. The game has been delayed 30 minutes, however, to allow for the completion and analysis of further test results.

We’re not sure why the Sharks are priced like they’re healthy and good but we’re not going to worry about it. Buffalo’s stock has been so low for such a long time that perhaps the market trusts they’re going to come crashing down any time now. That may be true but what we know for sure is that Buffalo is 5-2-1 and you won’t find another team in the NHL with a bigger chip on its shoulder than the Sabres. Most of their wins have been deserved and even if they were not, Buffalo still holds a significant edge over San Jose in scoring chances differential, puck possession in the offensive end and many others. Now the Sabres will play a team that is one third minor-leaguers. Another big overlay.
