The Carolina Hurricanes and Ottawa Senators meet Monday in NHL action at the Canadian Tire Centre. Let’s preview this game and give out a pick and prediction.

The Carolina Hurricanes are averaging 3.2 goals per game and are scoring on 20.5 percent of their power play opportunities. Sebastian Aho leads Carolina with 35 goals, Brent Burns has 43 assists and Martin Necas has 234 shots on goal. Defensively, the Carolina Hurricanes are allowing 2.5 goals per game and are killing 84 percent of their opponent’s power plays. Frederik Andersen has allowed 75 goal on 783 shots faced, and Antti Raanta has allowed 57 goals on 623 shots.

The Ottawa Senators are averaging 3.1 goals per game and are scoring on 24.4 percent of their power play opportunities. Tim Stutzle leads Ottawa with 37 goals, Brady Tkachuk has 45 assists and Alex DeBrincat has 260 shots on goal. Defensively, the Ottawa Senators are allowing 3.2 goals per game and are killing 81.5 percent of their opponent’s power plays. Anton Forsberg has allowed 80 goals on 817 shots faced, and Cam Talbot has given up 95 goals on 935 shots.

The Hurricanes are 23-9 in their last 32 games playing on 1 days rest and 40-18 in their last 58 overall. The Senators are 4-1 in their last 5 home games and 1-4 in their last 5 overall. The under is 6-1 in Hurricanes last 7 overall. The over is 6-2-1 in Senators last 9 overall. The Hurricanes are 10-4 in the last 14 meetings. The home team is 33-13 in the last 46 meetings. The favorite is 14-4 in the last 18 meetings.

The Ottawa Senators are a tough out on their home ice, but the bottom line is they're a below average team that has nothing to play for and can't be trusted against quality teams. The Carolina Hurricanes are not only comfortably the better team, but they're looking to lock up a division title, so a motivated side is coming to town. Give me the Canes and the PL for max betting value.
