Ottawa's top goalie is Anton Forsberg, who is giving up an average of 2.75 goals per game. In his 40 games played, he has turned in 26 quality starts, giving him a quality start percentage above the league average.

On the season, 45.0% of Ottawa's games have gone for at least 6 goals or more, with 44.0% of the scoring coming from the SenatorsIn Boston's 73 games, the over has hit in over half of their games, going 34-33-6. So far, taking the over when the Bruins are playing at home, has been a good bet with an over-under record of 18-15-3. On the season 55.0% of Boston's games have gone for at least 6 goals or more, with 55% of the scoring coming from the Bruins. With the over-under line set at 5.5 goals, I see Ottawa and Boston surpassing this number, as both team's goalies are struggling to protect the net. I recommend taking the over.
