In a game from NHL, we will see Ottawa Senators at Colorado Avalanche.
Ottawa recently saw their winning streak come to an end after a loss to Boston. Boston’s goalie Tuukka Rask was superb in that game, saving 38 of the 39 shots he faced, despite the fact that the Senators have a good offense which is ranked 6th in the NHL with 3.6 goals scored per game. They are, however, allowing the same number of goals- 3.6.
Colorado continues to have a great penalty killing unit. It is the same unit as last year and Semyon Varlamov is looking better than ever. Varlamov is 4-1 this season and has goals against average of 1.56 and saves 95 percent of the shots he has faced this season. Varlamov has allowed just 11 pucks to cross the line and has faced 235 shots on goal this season. This is the best defense in the league, allowing just 2 goals per game while scoring 3.3 in the opposition’s net.
Even though the money line is not that valuable here, I think that we can’t miss it because it seems like a sure pick. We have the hottest goalie on the planet- Varlamov and a Senators team that is conceding 4 goals per game on the road.
