Senators Preview

The Ottawa Senators are 22-23-3 this season after they defeated the Toronto Maple Leafs by a score of 6-2 in their last game. Ottawa out shot Toronto by a total of 34-33 and won 60% of the faceoffs in the game. The Ottawa Senators are averaging 2.85 goals per game, 3.26 goals against per game, 26.4% on the power play, and 81.1% on the penalty kill. Brady Tkachuk has led the Senators with 19 goals, 30 assists, and 201 shots on goal this season. The projected starting goalie for Ottawa is Anton Forsberg, who is 9-10-2 this season with a 3.30 goals against average and a .903 save percentage.


Montreal is 2-5 in their last 7 Saturday games and 1-8 in their last 9 games against the Atlantic. The under is 7-3-1 in Montreal’s last 11 road games. Ottawa is 5-1 in their last 6 games against the Atlantic and 18-42 in their last 60 Saturday games. The under is 9-2 in Ottawa’s last 11 home games. The under is 13-5-1 in these two teams last 19 head to head meetings.


Ottawa comes into this game on the second game of a back to back after defeating Pittsburgh last night. Montreal has lost three of their last four games and is dealing with injury issues. These two teams are at the bottom of the Atlantic Division, but Ottawa is in better shape right now. I like the Senators to win by at least two goals.
