The Ottawa Senators and the Montreal Canadiens meet in NHL action from the Bell Centre on Thursday night.
The Ottawa Senators will try to bounce back from a 9th straight loss after a 4-2 loss to Edmonton last time out. Brady Tkachuk has a team-high 7 points with 3 goals and 4 assists with a team-high 46 shots on goal. Josh Norris has 2 goals with 4 assists for his 6 points while five Senators each have 5 points on the year. Nikita Zaitsev has 5 assists while Austin Watson has 3 goals with 2 assists and Thomas Chabot and Nic Paul each have 2 goals with 3 assists. Drake Batherson has a goal with 4 assists to round out that group for Ottawa. Matt Murray has Ottawa’s lone win, posting a 4.82 GAA on the year while Marcus Hogberg has a 4.54 GAA on the year.
The Montreal Canadiens will look to build on a 5-3 win over Vancouver last time out. Jeff Petry and Tyler Toffoli each have 13 points with Petry logging 5 goals with 8 assists while Toffoli has a team-high 9 goals with 4 assists. Nick Suzuki has 11 points with 3 goals and 8 assists and Jonathan Drouin has 9 points with 8 assists and Josh Anderson has 8 points with 6 goals. Shea Weber and Jesperi Kotkaniemi each have 7 points with Kotkaniemi logging 6 assists while Weber has 2 goals with 5 assists. Carey Price has picked up 4 wins with a 2.77 GAA while Jake Allen has a 2.02 GAA and 3 wins on the year this season.
Ottawa is 10-43 in their last 53 road games and 15-43 in their last 58 games overall while the over is 5-1 in their last 6 games against a team with a winning record. Montreal is 5-1 in their last 6 games overall and 4-1 in their last 5 games as a home favorite while the over is 8-1-1 in their last 10 games as a favorite. Ottawa is 1-6 in the last 7 meetings between these two teams and 1-7 in the last 8 meetings between these two teams in Montreal.
As if things weren’t bad enough for Ottawa, losing nine straight coming into this one, the Sens have to fly across the country to take on a Montreal team that’s playing some of the best hockey in the entire league right now. It’s not often you’re going to see Montreal laying this kind of juice and it’s even more rare when it’s justified. I’ll side with Montreal on the puck line to try to get any sort of value out of this bet.
