Matthew Tkachuk also has 25 points with 17 assists along with a team-high 97 shots on goal this season.

Calgary is 1-4 in their last 5 home games and 1-4 in their last 5 Wednesday games while the over is 7-2-2 in their last 11 games as a favorite. Ottawa is 20-47 in their last 67 games overall and 15-38 in their last 53 games following a win while the under is 3-1-1 in their last 5 games as a home underdog. The home team is 7-2 in the last 9 meetings between these two teams.

I get the case that could be made for either side here as Calgary’s the better team but Ottawa’s battled their hardest on home ice this season. However, what I can say for sure is that there’s been an offensive struggle on both sides lately, and a 2-1 game is the epitome of that for both sides right now. I very well think another 2-1 game could be on the cards here, so I’ll take the under in this one.
