The defense for the Senators is ranked 28th and the defense is going to really let them down here. The Devils in the last game scored four goals and they are going to score at least that here. In this game the Devils are going to score at least four goals. The Senators offense is averaging 3.43 goal per game and they are going to find plenty of success here also. Both defenses are going to really struggle here, and that is going to be the difference as this game is going to end up being higher scoring. Back the over.
