The Winnipeg Jets and the Ottawa Senators meet in NHL action from the Canadian Tire Centre on Tuesday night.

The Winnipeg Jets will look to bounce back after a 3-1 loss to the Toronto Maple Leafs on Monday night. Neither side would get on the board in the opening 20 minutes but Toronto would break the seal just over five minutes into the 2nd period and would double their lead with 1:22 to go in the middle frame. Kyle Connor responded for the Jets just 34 seconds later to make it 2-1 heading to the 3rd, but despite outshooting Toronto 12-6 in the final frame, the Jets wouldn’t find the equalizer as Toronto potted the empty-netter to lock things up in the dying seconds. Connor Hellebuyck took the loss, giving up 2 goals on 37 shots to fall to 1-1 on the year.

The Ottawa Senators will also be looking to rebound after a 3-2 loss to Toronto in their last outing. Nicholas Paul opened the scoring for the Senators just after the midway point of the opening period, but that lasted all of 3:22 before Toronto tied the game at one. Toronto took a 2-1 lead early in the 2nd and held the lead into the 3rd period where the Leafs added an insurance goal on the power play just under three minutes into the final frame. Tim Stutzle responded for the Sens with just over eight minutes to go, but like Winnipeg, the Sens wouldn’t find the tying goal down the stretch as Toronto held on for the win here. Matt Murray got the loss, falling to 1-1 after giving up 3 goals on 40 shots faced in the losing effort.

Winnipeg is 2-6 in their last 8 road games and 2-5 in their last 7 games playing on no rest while the under is 4-1 in their last 5 road games. Ottawa is 4-1 in their last 5 home games and 16-35 in their last 51 games overall while the over is 4-1 in their last 5 games as a home favorite. Winnipeg is 6-2 in the last 8 meetings between these two teams.

I think you could make a case for either side in this one but I’m going to side with Ottawa. The Sens have shown some promise early on this season and the jury is still out on Winnipeg for the most part. Furthermore, the line has shifted in Ottawa’s direction and we’re still getting a cheap price on a rested Ottawa team against a Jets team on a back-to-back. Give me Ottawa here.
