The Ottawa Senators and Edmonton Oilers meet Sunday in NHL action at the Rogers Place.
The Ottawa Senators need a win here to snap a seven-game losing streak. The Ottawa Senators are averaging 2.1 goals per game and are scoring on 11.8 percent of their power play opportunities. Chris Tierney leads Ottawa with three goals, Nikita Zaitsev has five assists and Brady Tkachuk has 35 shots on goal. Defensively, the Ottawa Senators are allowing 4.5 goals per game and are killing 75.8 percent of their opponents power plays. Matt Murray has allowed 25 goals on 177 shots faced and Marcus Hogberg has allowed 10 goals on 75 shots.
The Edmonton Oilers look for a win after splitting their last six games. The Edmonton Oilers are averaging 2.9 goals per game and are scoring on 20 percent of their power play opportunities. Leon Draisaitl leads Edmonton with six goals, Connor McDavid has nine assists and Ryan Nugent-Hopkins has 30 shots on goal. Defensively, the Edmonton Oilers are allowing 3.7 goals per game and are killing 75.9 percent of their opponents power plays. Mikko Koskinen has allowed 31 goals on 296 shots faced.
The Senators are 10-41 in their last 51 road games and 15-41 in their last 56 overall. The Oilers are 1-4 in their last 5 home games and 4-11 in their last 15 overall. The over is 9-4 in Senators last 13 games playing on 2 days rest. The over is 6-2 in Oilers last 8 home games. The Senators are 11-1 in the last 12 meetings in Edmonton and 6-2 in the last 8 meetings. The road team is 16-5 in the last 21 meetings.
The Ottawa Senators are providing less and less betting value by the day, as the offense can't find consistency and the defense is downright awful. The Edmonton Oilers are on the end of a back to back, but they're fresh off an overtime win over the Maple Leafs, the type of victory that should provide this team with a boost of confidence. I want nothing to do with the Senators in their current form. I'll take the Oilers and the PL to shave down an pensive ML price.
