The Ottawa Senators and Winnipeg Jets meet Saturday in NHL action at the Bell MTS Place.
The Ottawa Senators look to snap a four-game losing streak. The Ottawa Senators are averaging 2.1 goals per game and are scoring on 13.3 percent of their power play opportunities. Tim Stutzle leads Ottawa with four goals, Nikita Zaitsev has six assists and Brady Tkachuk has 62 shots on goal. Defensively, the Ottawa Senators are allowing 4.2 goals per game and are killing 74.1 percent of their opponents power plays. Matt Murray has allowed 37 goals on 314 shots faced and Marcus Hogberg has allowed 24 goals on 146 shots.
The Winnipeg Jets look for a win after splitting their last eight games. The Winnipeg Jets are averaging 3.5 goals per game and are scoring on 22.7 percent of their power play opportunities. Nikolaj Ehlers leads Winnipeg with nine goals, Mark Scheifele has 12 assists and Andrew Copp has 36 shots on goal. Defensively, the Winnipeg Jets are allowing 2.7 goals per game and are killing 80.6 percent of their opponents power plays. Connor Hellebuyck has given up 24 goals on 300 shots faced and Laurent Brossoit has given up nine goals on 110 shots.
The Senators are 12-48 in their last 60 road games and 13-40 in their last 53 overall. The Jets are 12-5 in their last 17 home games and 1-4 in their last 5 Saturday games. The under is 5-0-1 in Senators last 6 overall. The under is 3-0-1 in Jets last 4 overall. The Senators are 1-5 in the last 6 meetings in Winnipeg and 0-6 in the last 6 meetings.
The Ottawa Senators are getting harder and harder to back, as the offense doesn't produce at a decent level and they're arguably the worst defensive team in the league. The Winnipeg Jets have been hit or miss up to this point, but they've won six straight against the Senators and have outscored them 19-8 in the four meetings this season. There's not much left to say here. Give me the Jets at home, and I'll take the PL to shave down an expensive ML price.
