The Montreal Canadiens and Ottawa Senators meet Saturday in NHL action at the Canadian Tire Centre.
The Montreal Canadiens look for a win after winning five of their last seven games. The Montreal Canadiens are averaging 4.4 goals per game and are scoring on 23.7 percent of their power play opportunities. Tyler Toffoli leads Montreal with nine goals, Jeff Petry has eight assists and Brendan Gallagher has 44 shots on goal. Defensively, the Montreal Canadiens are allowing 2.6 goals per game and are killing 79.5 percent of their opponents power plays. Carey Price has given up 20 goals on 198 shots faced and Jake Allen has given up eight goals on 114 shots.
The Ottawa Senators need a win here to rebound from a rough 2-8-1 record. The Ottawa Senators are averaging 2.4 goals per game and are scoring on 13.6 percent of their power play opportunities. Tim Stutzle leads Ottawa with four goals, Nikita Zaitsev has five assists and Brady Tkachuk has 48 shots on goal. Defensively, the Ottawa Senators are allowing 4.8 goals per game and are killing 70 percent of their opponents power plays. Matt Murray has allowed 30 goals on 224 shots faced and Marcus Hogberg has allowed 19 goals on 122 shots.
The Canadiens are 4-1 in their last 5 road games and 5-2 in their last 7 overall. The Senators are 4-12 in their last 16 Saturday games and 16-43 in their last 59 overall. The over is 5-2-1 in Canadiens last 8 overall. The under is 4-1 in Senators last 5 overall. The Canadiens are 5-2 in the last 7 meetings in Ottawa and 12-4 in the last 16 meetings.
The Ottawa Senators are coming off probably their best showing of the season with a victory over the Habs, but it's going to take more than that for me to get behind this club. The Senators haven't done much right up to this point and they're still one of the worst defensive teams in the league. The Montreal Canadiens are playing well and have dominated this rivalry over the last few years. Give me the Canadiens and the PL to shave down an expensive ML price.
