The Ottawa Senators and Calgary Flames meet Monday in NHL action at the Scotiabank Saddledome.
The Ottawa Senators need a win after losing seven of their last 10 games. The Ottawa Senators are averaging 2.6 goals per game and are scoring on 15.9 percent of their power play opportunities. Drake Batherson leads Ottawa with 15 goals, Thomas Chabot has 24 assists and Brady Tkachuk has 182 shots on goal. Defensively, the Ottawa Senators are allowing 3.7 goals per game and are killing 76.1 percent of their opponents power plays. Matt Murray has allowed 76 goals on 666 shots faced and Marcus Hogberg has allowed 34 goals on 254 shots.
The Calgary Flames need a win after losing five of their last eight games. The Calgary Flames are averaging 2.7 goals per game and are scoring on 20.3 percent of their power play opportunities. Johnny Gaudreau leads Calgary with 15 goals, Elias Lindholm has 26 assists and Matthew Tkachuk has 117 shots on goal. Defensively, the Calgary Flames are allowing 2.9 goals per game and are killing 80.9 percent of their opponents power plays. Jacob Markstrom has allowed 86 goals on 888 shots faced and Artyom Zagidulin has allowed two goals on 11 shots.
The Senators are 13-44 in their last 57 road games and 24-54 in their last 78 overall. The Flames are 2-5 in their last 7 home games and 4-9 in their last 13 overall. The under is 4-1-1 in Senators last 6 overall. The under is 4-0 in Flames last 4 overall. The Senators are 4-11 in the last 15 meetings in Calgary and 4-1 in the last 5 meetings. The home team is 8-2 in the last 10 meetings. The underdog is 4-1 in the last 5 meetings.
The Ottawa Senators continue to pile up the losses and have provided little to no value on the road or in the underdog role. The Calgary Flames should be favored at home, but they're not exactly lighting the world on fire right now either. Also, the Senators have won five of the seven meetings against the Flames this season and three straight wins overall. In fact, 33.3 percent of the Senators wins this season have come against the Flames. I'll take a shot with the Senators and the big plus money.
