The Ottawa Senators and Vancouver Canucks meet Saturday in NHL action at the Rogers Arena.
The Ottawa Senators look for a win after winning four of their last five games. The Ottawa Senators are averaging 2.7 goals per game and are scoring on 16.2 percent of their power play opportunities. Connor Brown leads Ottawa with 16 goals, Thomas Chabot has 24 assists and Brady Tkachuk has 185 shots on goal. Defensively, the Ottawa Senators are allowing 3.6 goals per game and are killing 76.8 percent of their opponents power plays. Matt Murray has allowed 78 goals on 694 shots faced and Marcus Hogberg has allowed 34 goals on 254 shots.
The Vancouver Canucks look for a win after splitting their last eight games. The Vancouver Canucks are averaging 2.6 goals per game and are scoring on 19.6 percent of their power play opportunities. Brock Boeser leads Vancouver with 16 goals, Quinn Hughes has 28 assists and Bo Horvat has 87 shots on goal. Defensively, the Vancouver Canucks are allowing 3.2 goals per game and are killing 78.5 percent of their opponents power plays.

The Senators are 19-57 in their last 76 road games and 26-54 in their last 80 overall. The Canucks are 6-2 in their last 8 games as a favorite. The under is 3-0-2 in Senators last 5 overall. The under is 10-3-1 in Canucks last 14 overall. The Senators are 1-5 in the last 6 meetings in Vancouver and 1-5 in the last 6 meetings. The home team is 6-2 in the last 8 meetings. The favorite is 5-1 in the last 6 meetings.
The Ottawa Senators have put together a nice little week, but they're still a losing team that's hard to back with confidence and they've been horrible on the road dating back to last season. The Vancouver Canucks have consistently been the better team here and they've won five of the six meetings this season against the Senators. The Canucks have also won six of their last eight games in the favorite role. I'll back the Canucks and the somewhat reasonable price in their home ice.
