The Canucks are 3-9 in their last 12 road games and 4-1 in their last 5 overall. The Senators are 4-1 in their last 5 home games and 18-45 in their last 63 overall. The under is 4-0-1 in Canucks last 5 overall. The over is 4-1 in Senators last 5 overall. The Canucks are 7-1 in the last 8 meetings. The favorite is 6-1 in the last 7 meetings. The home team is 6-0 in the last 6 meetings.

The Vancouver Canucks are not only playing the better hockey, but they've won all three meetings against the Senators this season by a combined score of 16-3. The Ottawa Senators haven't been able to string together wins all season long and I don't want to back this club on the end of a back to back. The only spot for me to go here is to side with the Canucks, and I'll take the PL for max betting value.
