The Senators are 17-39 in their last 56 games playing on 2 days rest, 16-54 in their last 70 road games and 37-76 in their last 113 overall. The Penguins are 143-66 in their last 209 home games, 136-62 in their last 198 games as a home favorite and 0-6 in their last 6 overall. The under is 4-1 in Senators last 5 games playing on 2 days rest. The over is 5-2-1 in Penguins last 8 home games. The Senators are 6-21 in the last 27 meetings in Pittsburgh and 2-6 in the last 8 meetings.

The Ottawa Senators have been able to string a few wins together the last couple of weeks, but that hasn't stopped them from being the second worst betting team in the league behind only the Detroit Red Wings. The Pittsburgh Penguins have gone ice cold out of nowhere, but this seems like a good spot for a bounce back performance, especially with them outscoring the Senators in the last two meetings, 10-5. The Penguins have won seven of the last 10 meetings against the Senators and six of those seven wins were decided by two or more goals. Give me the Penguins and the PL.
