Blackhawks vs. Senators Prediction

I’m on the Blackhawks here. The Blackhawks have been playing slightly better since being officially eliminated from playoff contention, and they’ve been able to find the back of the net with a lot more consistency. Ottawa’s played their better hockey at home this season, but I’m still having a hard time trusting the Senators here, and the fact remains that Ottawa’s lost their last 11 meetings with the Blackhawks including the first meeting this year. I’ll side with Chicago and the plus money here.
