The Ottawa Senators and Edmonton Oilers meet Monday in NHL action at the Rogers Place.
The Ottawa Senators look for a win after winning five of their last eight games. The Ottawa Senators are averaging 2.5 goals per game and are scoring on 14.9 percent of their power play opportunities. Brady Tkachuk leads Ottawa with nine goals, Thomas Chabot has 13 assists and Drake Batherson has 57 shots on goal. Defensively, the Ottawa Senators are allowing 3.8 goals per game and are killing 73.4 percent of their opponents power plays. Matt Murray has allowed 63 goals on 538 shots faced and Marcus Hogberg has allowed 31 goals on 220 shots.
The Edmonton Oilers look for a win after winning 12 of their last 17 games. The Edmonton Oilers are averaging 3.2 goals per game and are scoring on 25.9 percent of their power play opportunities. Connor McDavid leads Edmonton with 15 goals, Leon Draisaitl has 26 assists and Ryan Nugent-Hopkins has 78 shots on goal.

The Senators are 14-52 in their last 66 road games and 17-42 in their last 59 overall. The Oilers are 7-3 in their last 10 games playing on 1 days rest and 12-5 in their last 17 overall. The over is 4-1-1 in Senators last 6 overall. The under is 4-1 in Oilers last 5 overall. The Senators are 11-3 in the last 14 meetings in Edmonton and 0-4 in the last 4 meetings. The road team is 17-5 in the last 22 meetings.
The Edmonton Oilers are easily the better team here and have a clear edge with the rest advantage. The Ottawa Senators aren't all that talented and folks are just waiting for them to come back to reality, but they're finding ways to win, cashing tickets in the underdog role and they're fresh off a confidence boosting victory last night in a shootout. As long as the Senators continue to crawl out these wins and cash tickets as big underdogs, I'll keep taking a chance on them with these big plus money prices. Here we go again...
